Dukan Crockpot Salsa Verde Chicken (it's Paleo-ish too!)

Crockpot Salsa Verde Chicken

We both loved this recipe...and we loved how easy it was.

Finally found some time to work on recipes!

Came across this idea after seeing several recipes like this one on the internet.  We were happy to find Herdez Salsa Verde in Safeway down the street from us.  It has no preservatives or fat which made it allowable for both our Dukan and Paleo sides.  We didn't use free range chicken for this dish though.

The photo doesn't look the greatest, there really wasn't a whole lot of color going on, but it was easy and delicious!

Serves 2-4 (depending on what you eat or do not eat with it)
Prep time: less than 10 minutes
Cook time: approx. 6 hours on low

1 1/2 lbs. skinless chicken tenders
1 - 16 oz. jar of Herdez Salsa Verde
1/4 t. garlic powder
1/8 t. oregano
1/8 t. cumin
1 T. fresh lime juice (optional) - we actually used more and realized we should have used less!

Rinse and pat dry chicken.  We lined our crock pot with a Reynold's Crockpot Liner for easy clean up.     Place chicken in pot.  Mix herbs together - season chicken with herbs.  Pour lime juice over chicken evenly.  Cover and cook for 6 hours on low.  At the 5 1/2 hour mark, open the lid, quickly shred the chicken and cover.

The male half had his with brown rice and veggies and I had mine with just veggies.

Enjoy...we sure did!


  1. hi there, other than the lime juice no water is added? How does this not burn? Help?

    1. Hi Lavinia:

      Thank you for catching that mistake. We forgot the other main ingredient which is a 16 ounce jar of Herdez Salsa Verde!

      We've updated the post to reflect the corrected recipe.
