- 1 lb. boneless, skinless chicken thighs*, cut into 1-inch cubes
- 1 lb. boneless, skinless chicken breasts*, cut into 1-inch cubes
- 1 (16-ounce) jar salsa verde (such as Trader Joe’s or Herdez)
- 2 (4-ounce) can diced green chiles
- 1 medium yellow onion, diced
- 3 garlic cloves, peeled and minced
- 1½ lb. red potatoes, cut into 1-inch cubes
- 1 tsp. ground cumin
- 1 tsp. dried oregano
- Salt and pepper to taste
- 1½ cups organic chicken broth (NOTE: If making this a Freezer-to-Slow Cooker meal, wait to add the broth until it’s time to cook – i.e., don’t freeze the broth in the bag.)
Suggestions for serving: Fresh cilantro, lime wedges and/or diced avocado. Shredded cheese, sour cream, and/or warm corn tortillas are also great if you don’t need it to be Whole30-friendly.
*We like to use a of mix chicken breast and thighs but you may also use 2 lbs. of chicken breast only OR thighs only.
- Combine all ingredients in the slow cooker. Place the lid on the slow cooker and cook on high for 4 hours (or low for 8 hours) or until potatoes are very tender and the stew is thick. Season with additional salt and pepper to taste.
To make this a freezer-to-slow cooker meal:
- Combine all ingredients except chicken broth in a large zip-top bag (or another freezer-safe container). Label the bag and lay it flat in your freezer.
- On the day of cooking, place the contents of the bag into the slow cooker with 1½ cups chicken broth. Place the lid on the slow cooker and cook on HIGH for 6 hours or until potatoes are very tender and the stew is thick. Season with additional salt and pepper to taste.
