Slow Cooker Cilantro Lime Chicken

This is a great weeknight meal when you know you won't have a lot of time to prepare dinner! The taste is light and refreshing and can be used in tacos or served over rice. The original post for this recipe can be found here: Blog Link We like to have this with rice, corn and a side salad.

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 (I like to use 1/2 cup)

One 1.25-oz. package taco seasoning (I use homemade taco seasoning)

2 jalapeno peppers, finely chopped (optional)

Add 4-6 boneless thawed chicken breast halves to the slow cooker and stir tocoat with the salsa mixture. Cover and cook on Low for 6 hours. Lightly shred the chicken with a fork and use it over rice, in tacos or a taco salad, etc.
