Green Chile Chicken

Tonight I threw together something super quick and easy for dinner. This is a must try for anyone who loves mexican flavors!!

1 16oz jar salsa verde (or 16oz of homemade)
1 10oz can diced tomatoes with green chilies
1/2tsp minced garlic
1 tsp capers
1 whole green chile/jalapeno/serrano diced
juice from 1 whole lime
1 cup water
2.5lbs bonless skinless chicken breasts (you can also use 2.5lbs of pork shoulder)
Salt and Pepper to taste

In a large bowl combine the salsa, tomatoes, minced garlic, capers, lime juice, and diced chile of your choice. You can use whatever suites your taste as long as it's a green pepper. Mix together well.

Place chicken in crock pot (I used them straight out of the freezer but you can defrost them if you like. It will cut the cook time down by half) and cover with mixture. Spread it out evenly over the top of the chicken.

Pour water over top so it just barely covers the chicken (if you're using a larger crock pot you might need more water and vice versa). Allow to cook on high heat for 5-6 hours or low heat for 8-10.

Place breast over top of white rice and cover with a generous helping of the "sauce" and enjoy!!
