Cilantro Lime Chicken Recipe

I love chicken recipes. Okay, I love to eat chicken. Over the years, whenever I attempt to make an easy chicken recipe, I always head for the chicken breast. This recipe is no different. I would say the biggest difference is this easy slow-cooker chicken recipe was a hit with my entire family. It’s definitely a repeat recipe in my book.

Cooking for myself has always been a challenge. But 2020 is going to be my year. For real, this time. This healthy chicken recipe yields 9, 4-ounce servings. I had plenty of leftover cilantro-lime chicken to pop in the freezer for easy dinner or lunch dishes.

You can eat this Crockpot chicken anyway you would like. A few ideas that come to mind: serving on lime tortilla chips, stuffed burritos, chicken tacos, over brown rice, or even by the forkful. For extra fun, check out my fresh pineapple pico de gallo recipe. Another big hit in our home.
