Green Chili Chicken

This recipe is as easy as it gets. It also happens to be delicious. It's my favorite take on salsa chicken and has been a staple in our house since we were married. I serve it in corn tortillas or over tortilla chips to keep it gluten free, but you can make burritos out of it using flour tortillas if you don't need to keep it gluten free.

2-3 boneless skinless chicken breasts (can be frozen)
1 small can salsa verde (I use Herdez)
1 small can diced green chilis
1 tbsp cumin
1 tsp chili powder
1 tsp oregano

Combine all ingredients except the chicken in your crockpot. Add the chicken breasts. Cook over low heat until easily shredded (about 6 hours in my crockpot). Shred shortly before serving and let it absorb the sauce. Serve as tacos, burritos, nachos, or in a bowl over rice and beans.
