Easy Crock Pot Braised Chicken

-chicken (I used 1 package of frozen chicken breasts, about 1 lb)
-dash of olive oil
-1 jar salsa verde or tomatillo salsa
-1/2 cup water or chicken broth (you want enough liquid to coat the bottom of the crock pot, but the chicken doesn't need to be submerged)

Place ingredients in crock pot. Cover and set to high for approximately 4 hours or until chicken is done. If you use fresh or thawed chicken, set to low. Chicken will shred a bit on its own, if desired, shred more with a fork before serving. Excellent for tacos or nachos but also delicious on its own. Enjoy!
