The amount of liquid in the slow cooker is only enough to create a thin layer on the bottom, with a ton of chicken on top, uncovered. In addition, the cooking time is way off--I used 4 frozen chicken breasts (much less than the 3 lbs called for in the recipe) cooked on low and after 4 hours it was cooked completely through and could be shredded by a fork. The recommended cooking time, combined with the lack of liquid, would have ruined the meat. I added 3 cups of chicken broth, an extra lime, and more cilantro. I cooked on low for 4 hours, then removed the chicken, shredded it with a fork, and put it back in for 30 more minutes. When it was done I strained the chicken out of the liquid and put it on tortillas with cheese and sour cream as tacos, which was very good. The crockpot dish itself looked like a soup before I strained it, however.
