~3lbs of chicken
1 jar of salsa verde (we buy 2 the store so we can have some extra to add on the days that we're eating this)
1 cup of chicken broth
Desired amount of green pepper sauce
2 tablespoons of my salt-free taco seasoning (warning: this makes the crockpot less verde, but I highly recommend adding extra seasoning for more flavor, because who likes eating boring food, right?!)
Spray your crockpot with cooking spray
Add all of the above ingredients to your crockpot
Cook on low for 5-8 hours
OTHER INGREDIENTS TO MAKE THIS A COMPLETE MEAL
Your choice of veggie - we recommend broccoli/cauliflower rice or make it into a salad with lettuce, tomato, etc.
Avocado for a healthy fat
When your crockpot is done, divide it into your favorite meal prep containers, and this gives you & your significant other enough food for 3 meals each! As an example, Richie & I will eat this for lunch on Monday, Wednesday, & Friday during the week. For veggies, we like to buy microwave bags of broccoli/cauliflower rice or use the chicken salsa verde in a simple salad, or you can even assemble it into a chicken taco wrap.
Protein servings are about 6oz of chicken per meal & we split the bag of broccoli/cauliflower rice (veggie), split an avocado each meal (healthy fat), & tortillas on the side (optional carb). If you follow Beachbody's portion control containers, this recipe is 1 red (chicken), 1 green (broccoli/cauliflower rice), and 1 blue (avocado). If you have a wrap or piece of bread, that is equivalent to one yellow container. If you want to learn more about this diet, read this post!
