O.M.Y. {oh.my.yum} Featuring Sarah from The Fontenot Four!

Check out this delicious recipe from Sarah of {the Fontenot Four}!





On Saturday morning I was browsing Pinterest.
I wanted a simple crock pot recipe for chicken.
I wasn't feeling well.  I had thawed out chicken.  Had to cook it. 
But didn't want to exert a lot of effort!
Ever have those days??
I came across this pin for Cilantro Lime Crock Pot Chicken:

I checked my pantry and, sure enough, I had the ingredients...
pretty much.
I had bone-in skin-on chicken breasts, not boneless skinless.
I had dried cilantro, not fresh.
I had lime juice in a bottle, not a fresh lime.
Well, that worked for me so here is my version of this recipe!
Easy Delicious Cilantro Lime Crockpot Chicken:
So so nice to have a Kindle Fire to put on the counter for easy access to the recipe!!


Aside from the chicken, here's what you'll need:
A 24 oz jar of your favorite salsa.  I had a club-size bottle, so I measured out 24 oz.
The original recipe calls for the juice of 1 lime.  I did not have one, so I added 1 tbsp of "Realime" lime juice.
Instead of fresh cilantro {because I had none}, I used not quite 1/4 cup of dried cilantro.
Add 1 pouch of your favorite taco seasoning.
Blend everything together in your crock pot.
Throw in a package of boneless skinless chicken breasts.
{mine were bone-in skin-on, so I de-boned and de-skinned them before putting them in}
Cover the chicken with the salsa mixture.
Set the crock pot to low for 6 hours.
{about 4.5 or 5 hours in, I put it on warm}
Towards the end, I threw some white rice into my rice cooker.
Chicken is ready!
Serve the chicken over rice and top with the salsa mixture.
Not photographed: I then put some tortilla chips on the side and topped with some of the salsa mixture.  I added a generous amount of shredded "Mexican" blend cheese as well as dollop of sour cream!
This was so good that this post was supposed to go up Monday but I couldn't wait to share it with you!!

And before you say aren't you starting a fast??  Well, yes I am...it starts at sundown tonight.  This is not a Daniel Fast recipe, that's for sure.  And I enjoyed every bit of it!
Enjoy!
