If you’re looking for a slightly different way to make chicken, I think you’ll like this twist on chicken salsa verde. It’s one of those super easy meals where you can throw a few ingredients into your slow cooker and enjoy a delicious dinner a few hours later. Those are the best, right?!

See, I wasn’t even in the mood to cook dinner the first time I made these chicken sliders. We’ve had a lot going on lately, and I haven’t had much time to spend in the kitchen. Sandwiches are always a good bet whenever you want something fast and easy, and we had already had baked roast beef sliders and baked  ham and cheese sliders earlier in the week.

I almost made some skinny chicken Parm sliders, but I was absolutely craving some cheesy Mexican-style comfort food. So, I made creamy salsa verde chicken in the Crock-Pot, and instead of making enchiladas or tacos, I made sliders, instead. I’ve been on a roll with the green tomatillo sauce lately, and if you like the stuff as much as I do, check out these other recipes with salsa verde:

Like I said, this recipe is super simple, and you only need four ingredients for the chicken — besides the salt and pepper. Just add everything to the Crock-Pot, let it cook, and then make your sliders.

I added pepper jack cheese for a little extra spice, but you can use anything you want. My kids prefer colby jack, so that’s what I use with theirs.

I also bake the sliders for a little bit at this point, just to warm up the buns and get the cheese all melted and gooey. It’s optional, but the sliders are extra tasty this way!

    Made this for a family holiday dinner and everyone loved it!! A quick tip…some family members though it was a little too spicy so you may want to adjust the amount and/or spiciness of the salsa verde used. I will definitely make this again and again.5 stars
