Project Pinterest: Slow-Cooker Cilantro Lime Chicken

I pinned this from Reluctant Entertainer Sandy Coughlin's SLOW COOKER BOARD.

She found it at Pip & Ebby.

The other day, while mulling over what to make for dinner, I remembered pinning this chicken recipe - and thought I might actually have all of the ingredients on hand.  Well, not quite - but I adjusted.  You can see the original recipe and cooking instructions - just click on Pip & Ebby above.

Here's what I used for my Cilantro Lime Chicken:

3 - chicken breast halves
2 - 14.5 oz. cans of petite diced tomatoes with green chilies
2 T. lime juice (EQUIVALENT of juice of one lime)
1/4 c. fresh Cilantro, chopped
1 pkg. taco seasoning

My intention was not to serve the chicken breasts as whole pieces, but rather to shred the chicken towards the end of the cooking time.  I then returned it to the yummy sauce in the crockpot, and served it over rice.

It was DElicious!  A "keeper", and another Pinterest success story!  Many thanks to Megan from Pip & Ebby!  Another dinner hour saved!

Here are the rules:

5. Link up and check out other bloggers’ posts!


  1. That sounds yummy! I LOVE cilantro.

  2. I made cilantro lime shrimp the other day, but it wasn't that great. This sounds like it would have more flavor. Glad it was a success for you!!! :)

  3. Ohhh I just got a new crock pot last weekend & this is perfect to break it in! =) Thanks =)

  4. This sounds like it's right up my alley. Easy and delicious!


Thanks so much for taking the time to comment! I read each and every one, and truly enjoy "conversations" with you! ~Sally
