Crock Pot Cilantro Lime Chicken Recipe

crock pot chicken

Since I work from home every Monday I recently started the tradition of “Crock-pot Mondays”. The only issue is that crock-pot Monday only works works if I also take part in “Grocery Store Sundays.” So let’s just say even though it doesn’t happen every week, it’s great when it does! This Monday I wanted to try a new recipe so I went with Crock-pot cilantro lime chicken (adapted from this recipe). It turned out to be very moist (sorry to everyone that hates that word) and delicious and we have eaten it multiple times this week! Here’s how to make some for yourself:

Ingredients:
– 2 chicken breasts
– 1 small onion (or half an onion)
– fresh cilantro
– 3 limes
– 1 can of chicken broth
– garlic salt
– salt and pepper

Directions:
– First lay the chicken breasts in the bottom of the crock-pot
– Squeeze the juice of the 3 limes over the chicken
– Pour the chicken broth over the chicken until it is covering the chicken about half way
– Chop the onion and put in the crock-pot
– Season with garlic salt, salt and pepper
– Place a handful of cilantro stalks on top of the chicken
– Cook on low for 5 hours
– Once 5 hours is up remove the cilantro stalks and discard
– Remove the chicken breasts and shred with a fork, adding in some fresh chopped up cilantro
– Once the chicken is shredded, slowly pour some of the juice from the crock-pot over the chicken until moist (I used a big spoon to scoop out the juice)

Now that the chicken is done you have plenty of options of how to eat it! The first night I made some guacamole and put the chicken in tortilla shells with all the usually taco toppings. It would be great in a salad too or even on it’s own!crock pot lime chicken
