    Ok back to the recipe at hand…

    Now, I could have used the usual boneless skinless chicken breasts for this dish, but to be honest, I'm kinda over that. Yes I do have plenty of recipes that use boneless skinless chicken breasts, but chicken thighs are just better IMO. They're cheaper, have more flavor, and it's so hard to overcook them!

    That's why they are perfect for the slow cooker and especially a bold latin-inspired dish like this one. In case you couldn't guess, it's called verde chicken because it's green. Green tomatillo-based salsa, cilantro, and lime juice. All green. And all very good too… add some garlic, chicken bouillon, cumin and that's all she wrote folks.

  • I use this recipe for chicken enchiladas twice a month, and it is DIVINE. When I’m in a rush, I sub 1 tbsp cilantro paste for chopped cilantro.
