Have you met my friend Debra at Worth Cooking? She’s a talented home chef who creates simple, healthy recipes that I can always count on to please my family. In fact, there’s one recipe in particular of Debra’s that’s an absolute family favorite – Slow Cooker Green Chicken. (Isn’t it awesome when you find a recipe that everyone loves! That’s why I’m excited Debra happily agreed that I could share it with you!)
My boys literally ask me to add this tasty dish to my meal plans every week. (Seriously!) Personally, I love this recipe because it’s not only delicious and healthy – it’s super easy to make! That’s why, it’s one of my favorite go-to recipes when having guests over for dinner. Plus, it’s economical too! (But, shh! no one will ever guess that, all your friends and family will know is that it tastes great!)
Of course, me being the recipe tinkerer that I am, I can never leave well-enough alone. So although Debra’s original recipe is fantastic, I’ve tweaked it a bit by adding sliced bell pepper and savory seasonings to give the chicken a more fajita-like flavor.
I typically serve this flavorful dish with a side of tortillas for the guys (since they’re not grain-free) and I enjoy it as lettuce wraps (as shown in the photos), or even better, over a steaming bed of herb-seasoned cauliflower rice. So good!
If you’re making this recipe for a dinner party, double it, warm some tortillas, and put out a complete spread of toppings … lettuce, fresh minced cilantro, diced tomatoes, guacamole, shredded grass-fed cheese … these are just a few ideas for topping this tasty dish. (And of course, extra salsa verde.) Enjoy!
