Cilantro Lime Chicken (Crock Pot)

  • Pinterest

If you are looking for a super easy, healthy, loaded with flavor, amazing tender chicken recipe of wonder…this is it, friends. It seriously couldn’t be easier! We love Mexican food around here and I am always on the look out for new recipes to mix things up. This chicken has a wonderful Mexican flavor with just a hint of lime added at the end. You can serve it in warm tortilla shells for fabulous tacos or you could serve it in a big Cafe Rio style salad with this Cilantro Lime Dressing.  Lots of possibilities with this one, gang.

Hope you love it!

1. Grab a 4-5 quart crock pot and spray it with cooking spray.
2. Place 4 large chicken breasts (I used frozen, yay for that!) in the crock pot. You’ll need about 2 1/2 pounds.
3. Sprinkle 2 Tb taco seasoning evenly over the chicken.

4. Pour 2 C salsa (I used Pace Mild) over the top.

5. Drizzle 1 Tb of honey over the top of the salsa.

6. Chop 1/3 C of fresh cilantro and sprinkle it over the top.
7. Cover and cook on low for 6-7 hours or on high for 4.
8. Remove the chicken from the crock pot and shred it with two forks. Remove all but about 1 cup of the liquid from the crock pot. Add the shredded chicken back to the remaining liquid. Squeeze the juice of 1 lime into the crock pot. Give everything a nice stir. Cover and cook on high for 30 minutes.

Serve in warm flour tortilla shells with cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, sour cream and avocado.

Enjoy!

    Why can’t I print this recipe and also all of the ads on top of the recipes are so annoying I have to keep clicking on them to get them removed and then they reappear.

    This recipe is from Allrecipes, I have used it alot. It is very popular and has several thousand reviews. You shouldn’t take credit for someone else’s recipe.
