Salsa Verde Mexican Chicken | Slow Cooker Recipe

Slow Cooker Salsa Verde Mexican Chicken is the perfect filling for tacos, enchiladas, and burritos and as a topping for Nachos

You should definitely try the Salsa Verde Chicken Loaded Ultimate Nachos – just saying…

This is embarrassingly easy to make – just set it in the morning and you’ll have tender shredded chicken for dinner. It’s delicious and the perfect chicken to throw together for a quick weeknight Mexican dinner of tacos or enchiladas.

I almost always have this chicken in my refrigerator so that it’s easy to grab a healthy snack or make a quick taco or enchilada.
