Total time: 
Serves: 6
  • 3 lbs of chicken (a mix of white and dark is ideal)
  • 1 jar of Trader Joes Salsa Verde (or any green salsa would do)
  • 2 teaspoons diced shallots
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1 cup broth, I used vegetable
  • (optional) 1 small serrano or jalapeno pepper, finely diced
  1. Place all ingredients into a slow cooker or Instant Pot. Cook for 6 hours for the slow cooker. Set Instant Pot to 20 minutes and let it naturally release.
  2. Once chicken is cooked thoroughly, shred with a fork and spread out the meat onto a cookies sheet.
  3. Pour half the leftover juices on to the chicken and broil at 500° for about 10-15 or until the chicken juices cook down and it gets a little crispy
