Chicken with Salsa Verde

I saw this on a website, and I truly can’t remember where now.  Either way, it seemed like a great, low cal idea – throw some chicken breasts in a slow cooker, dump a jar of salsa in, cook for a few hours and then shred the chicken.  I went ahead and made some salsa verde for this, and it was a really easy, really tasty meal.  It would be great in some tortillas, but we’re back on the eating lighter bandwagon, and it was actually delicious as is.  We had this with black bean and corn salad on the side, and really loved it.

So there’s not a lot of recipe here.  I used 3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, the homemade salsa (probably equivalent to one jar), a pinch of cumin and a handful of Mexican oregano.  I left it on low in the slow cooker for about 6 hours.  It would have been fine going longer.

This would probably be pretty good with a pork loin instead of chicken too.
