garlic salsa shredded chicken recipe (crock pot)

This recipe is one of my all time favorites. Its so easy.

 

Ingredients

1 1/2 cup roasted verde garlic salsa (click the link for my special recipe:
https://fitnesswithautumn.wordpress.com/2014/10/13/roasted-tomatillo-salsa/)

(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.

simple diy crockpot applesauce

Image

  • Ingredients:

    About 8 apples cleaned, cored and diced.

    -A mixture of organic apples  is what I usually use but you can use what ever brand of apples you like. This is a great opportunity to get rid of those older looking apples sitting on your counter taking up space.

    1 tbsp vanilla extract

    1 tbsp cinnamon plus one cinnamon stick for extra flavor.

    5 tbsp brown sugar

    1 squeeze of lemon juice

    combine all together in crock pot and cook on low  for about 6 hours. Stir occasionally, remove  cinnamon stick and blend!

    simple as that. eat some right away plain or with some yummy ice cream to make it more like a dessert, or you can store for later in mason jars. Place in the freezer if storing more then 2 weeks. good in the freezer for up to 3 months
