If you are anything like me, the to-do lists never end and there never seems to be enough time in the day. Easy recipes like this one make eating Paleo doable and delicious. Today I’m going to share a 2 ingredient Paleo Crockpot Chicken Recipe.
Crockpots are the BEST! It takes only 5 minutes to assemble this recipe. Then I can leave it cooking while I run errands, go to class, or workout, and it’s ready by dinner time. It’s so simple, just chicken breasts and salsa verde. My mom and I were inspired to make this recipe because of a dish at a Cuban restaurant in Disney World, called Bongo’s. They have the best shredded chicken and it’s so simple. In order to make it more like Bongo’s chicken, after I cooked it in the crockpot, I put it in the oven on low broil for 5 minutes. This will give it a nice crispy outside layer.
Don’t be afraid to get creative with this base recipe. You can add onions or peppers to the crockpot to make it into fajitas. And once it is cooked, there are endless possibilities for leftovers. You can wrap it in lettuce wraps, mix it with other meat, put it in a casserole, or freeze half of it for another week. Get resourceful.
Planning your meals on the weekend, and cooking them ahead will save you time and help you tremendously. I find so many ideas on Pinterest! If you haven’t seen my Pinterest, you really should. I am somewhat of a pinning queen… Yes it is addicting! Enjoy this recipe, and let me know your favorite way to eat it.
