Saturday Do-It-Yourself: Slow Cooker Cilantro Lime Chicken!

Posted by on Sat, April 5th, 2014 at 11:00 am

We’re back at it, with today’s Do-It-Yourself!  We’ve got a delicious, easy to make recipe for you that we know you’ll love!  It comes from SassyNatty, of Melissa, TX!

Slow Cooker Cilantro Lime Chicken:

In a slow cooker, mix together:

  • One 24-ounce jar medium or mild salsa
  • Juice from one lime
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
  • One 1.25-oz. package taco seasoning
  • 2 jalapeno peppers, finely chopped (optional)

Add 4-6 boneless chicken breast halves (completely defrosted) to the slow cooker and coat with the salsa mixture. Cover and cook on Low for 6 hours.

Serve the chicken with the salsa mixture spooned over the top. If you’re feeling crazy, throw a doll-up of sour cream on top with some crushed tortilla chips.

This is also delicious as a taco filling or in a taco salad or over a bed of sticky rice.

Holy moly, this looks yummy!  Thanks for sharing this recipe with Swag Nation.  I sense a lot of us will try this very soon!
