Slow-Cooker Chicken Chile Verde

This easy, flavor-packed dinner can be assembled in the morning in your slow cooker so you have dinner waiting for you when you get home. The tomatillos cook down into a tangy stew that gets a kick of heat from jalapeño and canned green chilies, while the boneless skinless chicken thighs become tender and practically fall apart when you shred them. Serve the chili verde over a bed of steamed rice with your favorite toppings, or with warm tortillas for dipping. We like to top it with a dollop of Greek yogurt for added creaminess.

RD Tip

This is a recipe you can mold to your nutritional needs. You can increase the calories by wisely choosing toppings — add avocados and Greek yogurt if you want to bump up the calories, or radishes if you want extra flavor without adding too many calories. You can also add a can of white beans for extra protein and fiber.

Active time: 25 minutes Total time: 4–8 hours (in the slow cooker)
