Salsa Lime Crock-pot Chicken

Remember Friday, when I told you I had chicken in the crock-pot? 

This chicken was so good, and so easy.  Don't you just love meals that you can prepare in the crock-pot, then basically forget about them?  I do, too!



Salsa Lime Crock-Pot Chicken


Ingredients:

4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
4 Tablespoons lime juice
1 Tablespoon chili powder
1 cup salsa
flour tortillas
lettuce
cheese
sour cream
...whatever other taco sides you might want. The possibilities are endless. 

Directions:

Place chicken in bottom of crock-pot. 
In a small bowl, mix lime juice with chili powder.
Pour juice over chicken.
Cook on low for 4 hours.
After 4 hours, remove the chicken and shred.
Place the chicken back into the pot and add the salsa. I added a smidge more lime juice here as well.   Let cook for about an hour longer. 
Serve on flour tortillas with your taco sides. 


MMM!  I don't know what it is about lime that just screams summer, but these tacos were great. And, not too hot; not even for maintenance man.
