Easy Peasy Crockpot Cilantro Lime Chicken!

I thought I would share with you my super simple recipe for Crockpot Cilantro Lime Chicken. This is one of those I just spent a whole whopping FIVE MINUTES making dinner - and that's because I took my time! It CAN be a little spicy dependent upon how many jalapenos you add, but it's a great little Mexican- type meal that can be modified in many different ways. The ingredients list is REALLY short, and this pretty much takes ZERO cooking skill!



Ingredients:

1 jar of salsa
1 package of taco mix
1-3 jalapenos, seeded and chopped - or you can just scoop some out of a jar
1-2 limes for juicing (add to taste)
3-5 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (frozen OR thawed)

To Make:

1. Dump salsa in crockpot
2. Dump taco mix in crockpot
3. Toss jalapenos in crockpot
4. Juice lime(s) into crockpot
5. Stir to combine
6. Add Chicken

To Cook:

I tossed mine in with some frozen chicken breasts RIGHT out of the freezer. I cooked it on high for four hours. If yours are thawed, cook it on low for four hours - or until you can stick a fork in the chicken and it falls apart when you twist it.

If you're going to cook it all day while you're at work, toss frozen breasts in, and cook on low for 8 hours, or until you get home and check the progress of your chicken.

My mini me and I prefer it over rice. However, my husband prefers to take his rice and shredded chicken and put it in one of those jalapeno flat bread wraps.

Tonight we were out of those wraps, so he created this:

If you know my Hubby, you know why the skulls are appropriate!

He simply added some cheese over the top of his chicken and rice, and then put a small clump of jalapenos in the center, because he likes it hot!

It's SOOO easy, and SOOO yummy! You'll love it I promise!
