Salsa Verde Crock Pot Chicken

We have been on a salsa verde kick for the past few months ever since our friends Patrick and Laura brought some homemade salsa on a weekend trip we took together in September.  I've been a big fan of the regular salsa chicken and figured I could try making it with salsa verde.  I decided to add a little lime juice and cilantro for a little extra something and it turned out just perfectly.  I think I even like it better than the regular salsa chicken and it is almost as easy!

Salsa Verde Crock Pot Chicken
From: Elizabeth's Dutch Oven
Prep time: 5 min
Cook time: 8 hrs on low

1 lb boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 jar salsa verde
1 large handfull of cilantro chopped
1 lime

1. Place chicken in the crock pot.  Pour salsa verde over chicken.  Squeeze half a lime and sprinkle chopped cilantro over top.

2. Cook on low for 8 hours.  Pull out chicken and shred.  Return shredded chicken to crock pot and stir into salsa mixture.  Keep on warm until time to serve.  Serve on tortillas or over lettuce with fixings of your choice.
