Ingredients

1 1/2 cup roasted verde garlic salsa (click the link for my special recipe:

(homemade salsa makes this even better but you can use a salsa that you get from the store)

4-5 skinless chicken tenders or 2-3 chicken breast

Instructions

step 1: Place raw chicken in crock pot

step2: stab a few holes in the chicken

step3:  poor salsa over chicken

step4: cover crock pot with lid

step5: turn crock pot on low for 6 hours or high for 4 hours depending on how much time you have

step6: if you cooked the chicken for 4 hours you may have to shred the chicken a little with a fork. If you cooked the chicken for 6 hours the chicken should fall apart when your trying to take it out of the crock pot.

step7: enjoy how ever you heart desires. I like to add a little extra salsa, combine with montery jack,  Colby jack cheese and non fat Greek yogurt  in a burrito.

this serves about 3-4 people
