Tried & True Tuesday ~ Crock-Pot Green Chile Salsa Chicken

Here is another great recipe for the crock-pot,

 Crock-Pot Green Chile Salsa Chicken

I shared this recipe back in February, 
 it's one of my most popular posts to date!
I thought I'd share it again for new followers. 

This is the time of year our crock-pot gets a lot 
of use.  With heading back to school, homework 
and evening activities, I'm always looking for 
great recipes for the crock-pot!

 I  first saw this recipe,
Slow Cooker Cilantro Lime Chicken,
on Pip & Ebby. I didn't have jalapenos
so I used a can of diced green chiles.   
The green chiles were a yummy replacement!  

Crock-Pot Green Chile Salsa Chicken Recipe:

Printable Recipe 
2 to 3 lbs of boneless chicken breast or thighs (thawed) - If you have large chicken
   breasts, cut in thirds.
1  24 oz jar of salsa (mild, medium or hot - do what you like)
1  4 oz  can diced green chiles
1  packet of taco seasoning (1.25 oz)   
1/4 cup fresh cilantro chopped
2 limes 
*Optional - sour cream & cheddar cheese

Spray your crock-pot with non-stick cooking spray.  Place chicken in single layer in pot. With a large bowl, mix salsa, green chilies, taco seasoning, cilantro and juice of 1 lime. Pour mixture over chicken and cook on high for 4 to 5 hours.   Serve over rice.   
*Sour cream, cheddar cheese, a little squeeze of fresh lime and fresh cilantro, 
makes this great dish even better! 

I'll be sharing this recipe at  these great parties:

Thanks, Danni! I love using my crock-pot, especially in the fall. I just saw on Pinterest, you can make baked potatoes too! Just wrap them in foil, place them in the crock pot on low for 8 hours. You can stack them too, so you can get 6-8 potatoes in a 4 qt pot :O) I'll be making lots of sweet potatoes!
