Crockpot Cilantro-Lime ChickenIf it isn’t obvious from my last several posts, I’m a big cilantro fan, so this dish was a hit! It’s pretty easy, pretty basic, yet packed with flavor! I suppose you could just eat this as is but I served it in tortillas with some cheese.. you don’t need to add much else- there’s already a lot to the chicken.
