I wasn't sure if he was going to like my slow cooker creamy salsa verde chicken because it has a little spice to it. But boy was I wrong! This kid devoured it. I served the shredded chicken by itself to him. I could here him slurping up the sauce from the chicken. He loved it and kept signing for more.
This recipe is so easy to put together. All you'll need is four chicken breasts and a jar or couple cans of salsa verde. Once the chicken is done cooking in the slow cooker you'll want to shred it by hand.
Then add in whipped cream cheese into the salsa verde and mix it until all the cream cheese has melted. Place the shredded chicken back in the pot and then add in the chopped cilantro. Give it a good stir and dinner is ready!
I made tacos with the slow cooker creamy salsa verde chicken. I kept it simple and just piled the tacos high with shredded cheddar cheese, and slices of avocado. Simple, easy-to-make tacos that were packed full of flavor, and made for an ideal weeknight dinner. Other ways you can serve up this creamy salsa verde shredded chicken are in burritos, in quesadillas, or even served on a bed of rice.
It's so good I can eat spoonfuls of it without anything else! Of course, I always prefer it in a taco but I'm a taco kind of girl. I like to enjoy these tacos with my bacon refried beans!
If you're looking for an easy weeknight meal, I challenge you to make this easy shredded chicken and spice up your weekly menu plan!
