Crock Pot Cilantro Lime Mexican Chicken

Mexican-Chicken-Tacos-healthy3

 

This chicken can be kept as a whole chicken breast or shredded to make tacos, enchiladas,on nachos,  or my favorite quesadillias . It has a GREAT flavor and you can add how much hot you desire. I make this all the time. It also freezes well if you make a large amount. I love this stuff …..

Ingredients:

  • 1 – 16oz jar of your favorite salsa ( fresh salsa can be used but the flavor isnt as strong )
  • 1 – package of taco seasoning (mild or hot )
  • 2 limes juiced
  • 3 tablespoons of fresh chopped cilantro – ( add jalapenos too if you like spicy )
  • 3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • Thats it !!!

Directions:

  1. Place the salsa, taco seasoning, lime juice, and cilantro into a slow cooker, and stir to combine.
  2. Add the chicken breasts to the bottom, and  coat with the salsa mixture.
  3. Cover the cooker, set to High, and cook until the chicken is very tender, about 4 hours. Or,  set cooker to Low and cook 6 to 8 hours. Shred chicken with 2 forks put back in the crock pot juices and stir. Leave on warm for 20 minutes then serve or leave whole and enjoy it with Mexican rice !!
