Dinner in 5 Minutes: Crock Pot Creamy Salsa Verde Chicken
Back when I was a teacher I had my summers off to explore my hobbies, and one summer some magical power came over me to know what would work in recipes and what wouldn't. I guess I'd read so many cookbooks cover to cover I just had it on top of my mind what chemically and consistently would work! Now this particular one is not rocket science and nothing impressive, but there were a few I could slap myself for not writing down since I thought I'd always know how to do it seamlessly. Now I struggle so hard and I'm glad I at least wrote down my easiest one!
I was particularly into crock pot meals, and I'd seen so many that used a jar of salsa as the liquid base that I figured an easy substitution would be salsa verde for a fun change up. I'd also seen a handful with a certain consistency add cream cheese, so I thought why not, I'm trying these two over rice, and the result became a meal with 3 ingredients that we adore and make often!
1-2 lbs Chicken Breast (I usually just add two large and it works great)
1 Jar Salsa Verde
1 Package Cream Cheese
Dump the chicken in the slow cooker, and add the entire jar of salsa. Cook on low for 4-6 hours.
When the chicken is cooked shred it into bite sized pieces. Then add the package of cream cheese and cook another 10-20 minutes until it's melted. Stir it all up, and you're done!
Serve over rice or pasta, and enjoy one of the easiest and most delicious meals you can make!
