Salsa Verde Chicken

Serves: 6

This recipe was created for an Instant Pot. I almost bought myself one for Christmas, but didn't. Now I'm kicking myself. But, the good old slow cooker will work just fine. See the notes below.
You can do so much with this recipe. By itself, make some rice, top it with the chicken, a little cheese and cilantro and have an easy meal.
