Cilantro Lime Chicken

Pinned Image

We use this recipe a lot for our quick mexican dishes. We put the chicken in burritoes, on a green salad, in chicken enchiladas, or just eat it as the main dish. It isn't spicy so the kids like it a lot!

24-ounce jar medium salsa

Juice from one lime

1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped

1.25-oz. package taco seasoning

2 jalapeno peppers, finely chopped (optional)

6 boneless chicken breast halves, defrosted

1. In a slow cooker, mix together the salsa, lime juice, cilantro, taco seasoning and jalapenos.

Add the chicken and coat with the salsa mixture. Allow the chicken to cook, covered, in the

slow cooker on Low setting for 6 hours. Serve chicken with salsa mixture spooned over top,

or shred and use as a taco filling.
