Slow Cooker Cilantro Lime Chicken Tacos

I’m all about easy, healthy food. Because of that, my slow cooker is one of the most used appliances in my house. Prepping the dinner food when the kitchen is already being used for breakfast and possibly packed lunches, means one cleanup. It also means less stress in the evening when we may all be heading out for rehearsals, games, performances, or dates.

Slow Cooker Cilantro Lime Chicken Tacos

Today I made an enormously simple meal that took less than 10 minutes to make. It consists of dumping some stuff into the slow cooker and turning it on. All that is left to do is gather the condiments and I’ll be making a vegetable (today, butternut squash, which looked to pretty!) to go on the side.

  4. Cook on high for 4 hours (or low for 8 hours).
  5. Remove lime pieces and shred chicken breasts with fork. Put chicken back in crock with sauce.
  6. Serve wrapped in tortillas, with desired toppings.
