Slow Cooker Cilantro Lime Chicken

Another great Pinterest find!!

I found this recipe on

Who doesn't love a crock pot or slow cooker....?
If I was creative enough to use mine every day, I would.
I don't think it could get any easier then throwing frozen meat into a crockpot and leaving it to cook all day.

This chicken recipe could be used for a number of meals:
You could eat it over rice,
add some cheese and tortilla chips,
eat in a taco salad,
or as an easy way to spice up boring tacos!
(which is exactly what we did!)

So, if you have a busy day ahead of you or you just don't want to go through a lot of hassle cooking dinner one night, I highly recommend this EASY, delicious recipe.

Slow Cooker Cilantro Chicken
Did I mention how EASY this is??

Here is what you will need:
  • One 24oz jar medium or mild salsa
  • Juice from one lime
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
  • One package taco seasoning
  • 2 jalapeno peppers, finely chopped (optional)
  • 4-6 boneless chicken breasts
Yes, that is all you will need to make the chicken.
You will have to get other ingredients, depending on what you plan on making with this chicken...
Such as taco supplies, nacho supplies, rice, etc.

Ready for this tough recipe??

You will need to pay close attention...

In a slow cooker, mix together:
The salsa, juice from one lime,

1/4 cup chopped cilantro, taco seasoning, and chopped jalapenos.

Add the chicken breasts (either frozen or defrosted) to the slow cooker and coat with the salsa mixture. Cover and cook on low for 6 hours.

That is all you need to do... then you can walk away and forget about it until dinner!

Like I said before, we went the taco route with this recipe.
So I shredded the chicken and spooned some of the salsa mixture over top.  Then put the chicken in a tortilla and added our favorite toppings!!

Way better then the traditional beef taco!!
Don't forget some Corona's ;)
