Pollo Verde

Pollo Verde will now be my meal of choice for my easiest and most delicious dinner.  I even plan to serve it next time we have guests over.  With 2 ingredients, it couldn’t be simpler, but the taste is amazing!

To prepare, place chicken breasts in the crock pot and cover with 1/2 – 1 jar of a gluten-free Salsa Verde.  Cook for 6-8 hours on low.  When chicken is done and tender, take it out, and shred it with a fork.  Then, put the shredded chicken back into the crock pot and mix in with the juices and salsa.

Serve in warmed corn tortillas (heated on a hot skillet until browned) and top with chopped onion, cilantro, avocado, and a squeeze of fresh lime.

That’s it!  My family loves this meal.  It’s healthy, fresh, and reminds me of street tacos from Mexico.  Enjoy!

    I do the same thing w/ pork tenderloin. Delicious!

  3. We had this tonight and it was delish. I made up a bit of guac instead of the straight avocado – couldn’t pass up the chance to have some fresh dip 🙂

    Thanks for the recipe! It was awesome and the kids liked it too.
