Slow Cooker Salsa Verde Chicken

Yet another crockpot success!!! I love finding recipes that I can put in the crockpot at lunch and forget about it until it is time to eat at dinner. This chicken was creamy and delicious with just a little hint of spice and if you make it with yougurt instead of the sour cream it is very healthy for you which is a winner in my book as well.  
Slow Cooker Salsa Verde Chicken
6 boneless chicken breasts(about 4 oz each)
1 onion chopped(optional)
1 T. fresh minced garlic
1 1/2 tsp cumin
1 tsp oregano
1 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
Juice of 2 limes
1(16 oz) jar green salsa, any brand you like)
2 cans white beans,drained and rinsed
1 1/2 cup sour cream or plain greek yogurt(can use low fat or fat free) I used 1 cup greek yogurt and 1/2 cup full fat sour cream

Plave chicken in the slow cooker(frozen or thawed) Mix all the other ingredients, except the sour cream/yogurt and pour over the chicken. Cook on low for 6-8 hours or high 3-4 hours. About 30 minutes before you want to eat.  Shred the chicken and put back into the crockpot and add the sour cream/yogurt. Let it Heat through then serve over rice of your choice or quinoa.

Yummy, looks tasty. I love crockpot recipes and am always trying to find new ones, esp in the summer when it's too hot for the oven.
