Roasted Salsa Verde chicken

I thought I would share an easy crockpot recipe with you this morning!  

This was probably one of the easiest recipes I've made in a while!  And it was a hit with the family...including Bryson!

I thought I had pinned this, but can't find it to share the link...good thing I wrote it down!

1 1/2 lbs chicken tenders
1/4 tsp garlic powder (or fresh!)
1/8 tsp oregano
1/8 tsp cumin 
Salt to taste
16 oz jar of Archer Farms salsa verde 
(Use any salsa verde you like!)

Season chicken with all seasoning and place in bottom of crockpot. (I didn't measure the seasoning, i just added what I thought looked good). Cover with the entire jar of salsa verde. Cook high for two hours (I did on low for 4-5 hrs). 
Remove chicken and shred. Remove 2/3 cup of the liquid left in the crockpot and discard (or keep if you like). Add chicken back to the crockpot. Season to taste. 

I made tacos with whole wheat tortillas, fresh from our grocery store bakery, some black beans and seasoned brown rice.  You can add all sorts of good things to this...onions, cilantro, avocado, lime, etc. 
This is the first time I made this and I would probably marinate it overnight for more flavor. This recipe is not spicy at all, so if you want a little spice, just add it in there. 

Sorry for no completed photos...we were starving last night!
