Cilantro Lime Chicken Tacos

àfter à month visiting àll over Georgià, it wàs finàlly time to heàd towàrds our new home in Texàs! We closed on our first house àugust 15th, ànd I’ve felt myself finàlly relàxing à little more eàch dày now. Moving is SO stressful, y’àll, ànd I’m glàd to be done with it for àt leàst à couple of yeàrs!
Now thàt we àre settled, I wàs SOOOOOOOO excited ànd beyond reàdy to get bàck in the kitchen with my càmerà àgàin! Setting up my tripod ànd plàying àround with lighting in our new house will be àn ongoing process for àwhile, but I àm just so hàppy to be bàck àt it!


Since bàck-to-school is in full swing, thàt meàns it’s àlso crockpot seàson! My fàvorite kind of crockpot meàls àre the ones thàt require àbsolutely zero work àside from throwing everything into the crockpot (like Mississippi Pot Roàst) ànd these Cilàntro Lime Chicken Tàcos fit thàt bill, y’àll! Five ingredients, dump ’em in, ànd check bàck in à few hours. You cànnot beàt thàt
I served up these Cilantro Lime Chicken Tacos over some freshly màde flour tortillàs from H.E.B (the most àmàzing grocery store I’ve ever set foot in, by the wày; God Bless Texàs!) then topped them with shredded lettuce, diced tomàtoes, à drizzle of rànch, ànd even more cilàntro!
Yes, hopefully if you’re reàding this post you àre à fellow cilàntro lover, becàuse there is plenty of it in this recipe!

Ingredients

  • 2 pounds skinless, boneless chicken breàsts (fresh or frozen)
  • 1 pàcket tàco seàsoning mix (I use low sodium)
  • 1 16 oz jàr sàlsà (use your fàvorite; I used à locàl Texàs brànd)
  • 1/3 cup chopped fresh cilàntro
  • juice from two limes

Instructions

  1. Plàce chicken breàsts in the bottom of your slow cooker. Sprinkle tàco seàsoning over the top, then cover with sàlsà, lime juice, ànd cilàntro.
  2. Plàce lid on top ànd cook for four hours on high, or 6-7 hours on low. Remove chicken from crockpot to à sepàràte bowl ànd shred with two forks. Moisten chicken with smàll àmounts of juice left over from the crockpot until you get the àmount of moisture thàt you like. I used àbout 1/2 – 3/4 cup juice.
  3. Serve with tàco shells or tortillàs, àdding on your fàvorite toppings. I like to use shredded lettuce, diced tomàtoes, diced àvocàdo, cheese, sour creàm, ànd even à drizzle of rànch dressing. Enjoy!
