Finally, a slower cooker recipe worth posting!!! That doesn't happen very often. I only have a handful of slow cooker recipes that have not made it directly into the trash can. I love the idea of regularly using a slow cooker because it seems very time saving BUT either I don't know how to use a slow cooker, or other peoples standards are a little different than mine! It always seems like everything turns out dry and overcooked :( Well, this recipe turned out great and was not dry or overcooked! It was super easy. I mixed everything together last night, threw it in the fridge and turned it on this morning. I came home to a house that smelled amazing! The lime and cilantro flavors go perfect in this tender chicken dish. It seemed very soupy until I shredded the meat and placed it back in the slow cooker in the juice. YUMMY! Enjoy :)
SLOWER COOKER CILANTRO LIME CHICKEN
1 (16 ounce) jar salsa
1 (1.25 ounce) package dry taco seasoning mix
1 lime, juiced
3 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
3 pounds skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
Place the salsa, taco seasoning, lime juice, and cilantro into a slow cooker, and stir to combine. Add the chicken breasts, and stir to coat with the salsa mixture. Cover the cooker, set to High, and cook until the chicken is very tender, about 4 hours. If desired, set cooker to Low and cook 6 to 8 hours. Shred chicken with 2 forks to serve.
