Freezer to Crockpot Lime Salsa Chicken
It was really easy to put together, and reminded me of fajitas! I served the chicken mixture in tortillas with sour cream and cheese and we had Cilantro Lime Brown rice on the side. So so yummy, and close to no work at all! I definitely recommend giving this recipe a try.
Lime Salsa Chicken from Kojo Designs
Juice from one lime
1/4 cup chopped cilantro (optional)
1.25-oz. package taco seasoning
2 jalapeno peppers, finely chopped (optional)
3 lbs. boneless chicken breasts or thighs (I used half thighs, half breast tenderloins)
1 chopped red pepper (I used an orange pepper)
1/2 onion, chopped
24 ounces salsa
Add all ingredients except salsa to a gallon sized ziplock bag and freeze.
When ready to eat, add contents of the bag and one 24-ounce jar of salsa (Kojo used mango salsa, but I used regular salsa) to the crock pot. Cook on high for 3-4 hours or on low for 6-8 hours.
Serve in corn tortillas (I used flour) with rice.
