Easy Crock-Pot Salsa Verde Chicken

Omit corn and corn tortilllas if Whole 30 and double check salsa verde ingredients if using other brands.

Servings 4 servings


  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  •  I jar/container 12-16oz clean salsa verde.  (We love Trader Joe's and Whole Foods roasted salsa verde 365 brand)
  • 1/4 cup organic chicken stock
  • 2 cloves garlic crushed
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • dash of cinnamon
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • juice of two limes
  • 1/2 cup chopped cilantro
  • 1/2 package Trader Joes pre-roasted corn omit if Whole 30
  • grape tomatoes
  • guacamole


  1. Place chicken stock in crock pot and add chicken.
  2. Sprinkle with garlic powder, cinnamon, salt and pepper.
  3. Add crushed garlic and spread on top of chicken breasts.
  4. Add salsa verde.
  5. Cook on low 4-6 hours or high 3-4 (see below for Instant Pot instruction) or until chicken shreds easily with fork. Each crock pot seems to cook differently so be sure to test chicken half way in.
  6. Once chicken is ready, shred with  a fork.
  7. Add lime juice and cilantro. Adjust seasonings if needed.
  8. Serve in lettuce boats or with fresh corn tortillas. Top with roasted corn, grape tomatoes and guacamole. Enjoy!
  9. **If using your Instant Pot, omit chicken stock and cook for 25 minutes on the poultry setting.
