Directions

1. To make the crockpot salsa verde chicken: Arrange bell pepper into the bottom of your slow cooker and spread into an even layer. Top with chicken thighs.

2. In a bowl whisk together chili powder, cumin, paprika, salt and pepper. Evenly sprinkle half of the seasoning over chicken thighs then flip chicken and sprinkle in the remainder. Top chicken with garlic.

3. In a small bowl whisk together olive oil, lime juice and add to slow cooker along with chicken and season with additional salt to taste if desired. 

4. Pour the salsa verde over chicken. Cover and cook on HIGH for 3 – 4 hours or LOW for 6 – 8 hours, until chicken has cooked through and veggies are tender.

5. Adjust seasoning, add more lime if you want, and garnish with fresh cilantro. Serve the crockpot salsa verde chicken over rice or in warmed tortillas with sour cream and optional guacamole, cheese and salsa. Enjoy!

Recipe note: For a bit of crispiness, you can carefully transfer cooked chicken to a roasting pan and broil for 2 – 3 minutes, then add chicken back to the slow cooker before serving.
