Cilantro Lime Chicken

I find a lot of great recipes on Pinterest, but so far, I must say this is my favorite. 


Slow Cooker Cilantro Lime Chicken
(Recipe from

24 oz. jar medium salsa (I used Pace Chunky Salsa)
Juice from 2 limes
1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
1 package taco seasoning
2 jalapeno peppers, finely chopped
4 boneless chicken breasts, thawed


In a slow cooker, mix together the salsa, lime juice, cilantro, taco seasoning and jalapenos.  Add the chicken and coat with salsa mixture.  Cover and cook on low for 6 hours, stirring occasionally.  Serve chicken with salsa mixture spooned on top or shred and use as a taco filling.  YUM!!

And 'ya know what goes great with this meal?...

Cerveza, of course!
I also made spanish rice (recipe to follow) and added some lime juice and cilantro to a can of Ranch Style black beans.  MUY BUENO!!!
