Slow Cooker Cilantro Lime Chicken
This was a great recipe to start with, but I made some modifications:
Used a 24-ounce jar of salsa instead of 16. Use a good salsa, not Pace or anything like that. Omitted taco seasoning and instead seasoned chicken with garlic salt, pepper, cumin, oregano, paprika, crushed red pepper, and a teensy bit of cayenne pepper (if you're not into spicy you might want to omit the last two). Added 1/2 green bell pepper and 1/2 onion. Only used half a lime, set the other half aside. Before making the salsa mixture, I poured about 1/2 inch coating of *salsa only* on the bottom, just to wet it, then did up my chicken, then poured the finished salsa mixture on top. Once cooked I sprinkled on more cilantro and the juice from the remaining lime, and served with Spanish rice.
This turned out so juicy and good, all those seasonings soaked into that chicken and the chicken was so moist I didn't need a knife! Great recipe.
