Lime Chicken Tacos

It definitely felt like summer inside my house today!  These Lime Chicken Tacos were refreshing and just plain awesome!  Who knew a chicken taco could taste so good?!  The lime added such a nice zing to the chicken and it was SO moist!  I served my Lime Chicken Tacos with shredded lettuce, cheese and tomatoes on top, but you could serve them with whatever you want on them.  I tried to find avocados on the way home, but they weren't ripe enough to eat today.  These tacos would be delicious with avocados on top!  I also served my Lime Chicken Tacos with some Zatarans Spanish Rice.  It was super quick to make and really good!  I don't usually like Spanish Rice very much, as I find it dry, but this was good!

Ok, are you ready for this SUPER SIMPLE and EASY meal?  Well, here it is.....

Lime Chicken Tacos

1 lb. boneless skinless chicken breasts (or there about)
2 limes, juiced
1 Tbsp. Chili Powder
1 16 oz. jar Salsa of your choosing
1 cup frozen corn

Place chicken breasts in Slow Cooker.  Mix the juice of 2 limes and Chili Powder together.  Pour over the chicken.  Pour half the jar of Salsa over the top of the chicken.  Turn the Slow Cooker on LOW for 6-8 hours.

When chicken is cooked, remove and shred it.  Place it back in the Slow Cooker and add the corn and the remainder of your jar of salsa.  Cook on low for approximately 1/2 hour, or until heated through.

Serve in a taco shell with toppings of your liking.  Serve with Spanish Rice on the side for a wonderful accompaniment.  Enjoy!

  1. This was sooo easy to make, it took me no more than 3 minutes to put together this morning. Plus, I had to take the cat to the vets & had only 5 minutes to do the shredding, no problem, done & out the door. We ate ours on. 100 calorie tortillas with light sour cream, muy delicioso!

  2. This is so easy and one of my family's favorites! We eat it at least twice a month and use leftovers in quesadillas and it is simply delicious both ways!
