Serves: 4

  • 2 sweet potatoes, cubed (peeled or unpeeled, doesn’t matter)
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 1 jalapeno pepper, sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 cup salsa verde
  • 1 tsp ground cayenne pepper
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
  • cooked rice, for serving
  • fresh cilantro, for garnish

  1. Place sweet potatoes, onion, jalapeno, garlic, and chicken in the bowl of a slow cooker. Add the salsa verde, cayenne, cumin, and red pepper flakes and stir everything together. Cover and cook on high for 4 hours (or low for 7-8 hours).
  2. When done, remove chicken to a plate and shred with two forks. The chicken should be coming apart quite easily. Transfer shredded chicken back into the bowl of the slow cooker and toss to combine. Serve with rice and garnish with cilantro. Enjoy!
