All you need is a slow cooker and 5 ingredients to create a creamy, spicy, and tangy dish your family will love! Our Slow Cooker 5-Ingredient Creamy Salsa Verde Chicken gets spice from jalapenos and chili powder, tang from salsa verde, and creaminess from Greek yogurt. Best of all, you just throw it all in your slow cooker and let it do the work until the chicken is tender, juicy, and flavorful. This dish is rich in antioxidants and vitamins, so it’s perfect for anyone trying to eat clean. And since the Greek yogurt even adds extra protein, you’ll love adding it to your menu rotation.

After shredding the chicken, you can use it in any number of ways! In tacos, over rice, in a salad—however you like! You can even roll it up in tortillas and use the sauce to make enchiladas.
