Whole 30 Chicken Verde

On my hunt for recipes that will help me on my journey towards lowering my sugar (diabetic problems) I have found this recipe, it looks yummy.  I borrowed it from "The Nourishing Home" page, there is a  link below, check out the website listed at the bottom of the recipe.

1 medium yellow onion
2.5 lbs boneless, skinless chicken thighs
1 1/2 tsp sea salt
1 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp paprika
1/4 tsp cumin
1 (12oz) jar Whole30-compliant Salsa Verde (see recipe note)
1 large red bell pepper
1 large yellow pepper

🌶Cut the ends off of the onion and remove skin. Then slice into 4-5 thick slices. Place in the bottom of a 6-quart slow cooker.
🌶Place the chicken thighs on top of the onion. In a small bowl, combine the seasonings and evenly distribute across the top of the chicken.
🌶Evenly spoon the Salsa Verde over the top of the seasoned chicken. (Trader Joe's and Whole Foods both have Whole30-compliant brands, be sure to read labels.)
🌶Slice the bell peppers into thick slices; discard the seeds and stem. You can either - place them over the salsa and cook with the chicken for very soft peppers that meld into the sauce, or add the peppers during the last hour of cook time to enjoy them al dente (as shown in photo).
🌶Cover and cook on low 5-6 hours, until chicken is fork tender. When chicken is done, use a slotted spoon to transfer the salsa-covered chicken and peppers to a large platter. Move the peppers to the side. Use two forks to shred the chicken.
🌶Serve on large Bibb lettuce leaves. Top with diced tomatoes, avocado, and fresh cilantro. So delicious!
