This quick-n-easy Slow Cooker Chicken Verde is by far one of the easiest and tastiest meals your whole family will love! If you haven’t added this classic dish to your meal plan rotation, it’s time to dust off your slow cooker and get this flavorful meal on the table pronto!
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!)
My inspiration for this recipe comes from my dear friend Debra at Worth Cooking. And although Debra’s original recipe is fantastic, I tweaked it a bit by adding sliced bell peppers and some additional savory seasonings to give the chicken a more fajita-like flavor. Yum!
I typically serve this flavorful dish with a side of organic flour 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 Seasoned Cauliflower Rice, or roasted Spaghetti Squash Noodles. So good!
P.S. If you’re making this recipe for a dinner party, simple double or triple it. I like to offer both soft Bibb lettuce leaves and also warmed tortillas (for the non-GF crowd). And of course, a complete spread of toppings … lettuce, fresh minced cilantro, diced tomatoes, guacamole, shredded grassfed cheese … these are just a few ideas for topping this tasty dish. (And of course, extra salsa verde.) Enjoy!
