The Kitchen Magician's 5 Below: Green Salsa Chicken

One of the Kitchen Magician's main missions is to cut through the clutter of "gourmet" cooking to make it okay again to create – and enjoy – simple food.

To that end, TKM will occasionally present tried and true 5-ingredients-or-less recipes, starting here with an old favorite:

Green Salsa Chicken

  1. 1 lb. boneless chicken breasts
  2. 2 15 oz. jars green salsa (a.k.a. tomatillo salsa or salsa verde, readily found on the International aisle of most grocery stores)
  3. Jalapeno hot sauce (such as the one by Tabasco), to taste
  4. Flour tortillas
  5. Shredded cheese

Place chicken, salsa, and hot sauce in a slow-cooker*, making sure chicken is completely covered by salsa. Cook on low for 6 hours, or high for 3 hours. Remove chicken from sauce, shred on a cutting board with two forks, then return to slow cooker for 20 minutes.

Serve with warmed flour tortillas and shredded cheese (and any other toppings you like).

Makes 3-4 servings.

*Alternate methods: this is one of those versatile recipes that can be adapted several different ways. Instead of slow-cooking, the chicken can be grilled, broiled, sautéed – whatever method you're most comfortable with. Just cook the chicken through, shred it, toss it into a pot with the salsa and hot sauce, and heat through on the stove top.
