One of the few things we love about the winter is the opportunity to use a slow cooker. One pot cooking is a dream for a busy mom or dad. Your can throw virtually anything into your slow cooker and it will come out tasty. Here is a yummy chicken recipe even the kiddies will love.
2 bottles (16 oz each) of your favorite tomatillo salsa (I used Fontera Grill Tomatillo Salsa)
1 tbsp cumin powder
chilli flakes, salt and pepper to taste
2 tbsp vegetable oil
1/2 to 1 cup chicken stock or water (optional, if you like a “thinner” verde)
- Heat oil and sprinkle chicken with cumin, chilli flakes (if using) and salt and pepper.
- Fry in heated oil for 5-6 minutes till chicken gets some color/carmelization (no need to cook through)
- Dump in slow cooker along with tomatillo salsa, water/stock (if using) and cook on high for 3 hours of low for 6 hours. If cooking on stove-stop bring to a boil and then simmer for 30 minutes
