Slow Cooker Cilantro Lime Chicken

Slow Cooker Cilantro Lime Chicken

This recipe is addicting! Not just because is DELICIOUS, but because it’s easy, can be eaten over several meals, and my toddler will eat it. What more can you ask for? Cilantro lime chicken soft tacos are my “go-to” meal when I host play dates at my house, because there’s no fuss setting it up in the slow cooker, and I even have time to slice and grate the taco toppings before guests arrive. Plus, I make enough to serve this for dinner that same day — yes, I eat it twice in one day because it’s that good!  Feeling extra ambitious? Serve this dish with homemade salsa!
