Chicken Verde

I don’t usually have 4 pounds of chicken breasts on hand as it is just me and the hubby.  Can you imagine eating 4 pounds of chicken with just 2 peeps?  Ok there is always leftovers….right?  -.-  So I included a breakdown of ingredients that will help figure out how much to add to chicken from 1 to 4 pounds. (Towards the bottom of the recipe)… That or make it with 4 pounds of chicken…. and enjoy the leftovers.  Just sayin…

Chicken Verde Crock Pot

4 pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts, thawed and chopped.  

32 ounces (4 cups) salsa verde (I used mild.  I would prefer hot, but hubby dearest would probably cry)

2 tablespoons oregano

2 teaspoons garlic powder

garnishments:  cooked spanish rice, avocado, refried beans, more hot sauce and tortilla chips of some sort


just dump  the chicken, salsa and spices in a crock pot.  Submerge the chicken.  Set on low.  Cook for at least 4 hours. I start making this early morning and it’s fine even after 9 hours in the crockpot. 

Serve with the garnishments listed above, or anything else you fancy.


(1 pound of chicken: use 8 ounces (1 cup) of salsa verde, 1/2 tablespoon oregano, 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder)

(2 pounds of chicken: use 16 ounces (2 cups) of salsa verde, 1 tablespoon oregano, 1 teaspoon garlic powder)

(3 pounds of chicken: use 24 ounces (3 cups) of salsa verde, 1 & 1/2 tablespoons oregano, 1 & 1/2 teaspoons garlic powder)
