Recipe Friday – Slow Cooker Chicken Verde


Hi everyone!! Hope your week is going great!! If you’re like me you are usually busy but want to have a home cooked meal. What better way then a slow cooker or “crockpot” to actually get it done? I love my slow cooker because I can just literally dump everything in it and let it cook while I do things around the house. I use at least once a week 🙂

Here is one of many recipes I have found for the slow cooker…especially when it comes to chicken.  Enjoy!!



  • 1 Tablespoon ghee or coconut oil
  • 6 chicken legs, bone-in and skin-on
  • Sea salt and cracked black pepper, to taste
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed into a paste
  • 2 Teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1 Teaspoon ground coriander
  • 2 Cups roasted tomatillo salsa (store-bought or homemade), divided



  1. Heat the ghee in a heavy-bottomed pot or Dutch oven over medium-high heat.
  2. Season the chicken generously with salt and pepper. Mix the garlic, cumin, and coriander in a small bowl, and rub it all over the chicken. Working in batches, brown the chicken on all sides, about 2 minutes per side.
  3. Pour 1 cup of the salsa into the slow cooker and arrange the browned legs on top. Cover and cook on low for 8 hours.

Serve the chicken with the remaining 1 cup of the salsa.
