Slow Cooker Salsa Verde Honey Lime Chicken (and Tacos!) - the flavor of this chicken is out of this world! the best "dump and run" meal I have ever made! Love the sweet, tangy spicy Mexican chicken for tacos, burritos, tostadas, salads, etc. Couldn’t be any easier!
Ingredients
Slow Cooker Salsa Verde Honey Lime Chicken
  • 2pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1tablespoon olive oil
  • 1cup mild salsa verde(I use Herdez in the jar)
  • 1/2cup honey
  • 1/2cup lime juice
  • 1 1/2teaspoons chili powder
  • 1 1/2teaspoons salt
  • 1teaspoon onion powder
  • 1teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/2teaspoon cumin
  • 1/4teaspoon black pepper
  • Hot sauce to taste
Tacos
Instructions
  1. Rub chicken breasts with olive oil and place in the bottom of your slow cooker. Add all of the remaining Slow Cooker ingredients except for the hot sauce. Cook on high for 2-4 hours or on low for 6-7 hours or until chicken is tender enough to shred.
  2. Remove chicken to a cutting board, and let rest 5 minutes before shredding (there will be a lot of liquid remaining). Return shredded chicken and let cook on low for an additional 20-30 minutes to absorb some of the liquid/juices. Drain excess liquid before serving or use tongs to remove shredded chicken. Taste and add more honey for sweeter, lime for more tang, hot sauce for spicier.
  3. To make Seasoned Flatout FolidIt Flatbread Taco Shells, preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Cut each FoldIt in half and lightly brush with Salsa Verde Honey Lime juices from slow cooker on one side. Hang each cut FoldIt in half over individual oven rungs so they from a taco shell and bake at 375 degrees F for approximately 10-12 minutes or until edges are crisp. Remove and let cool for 1 minute. (See video on how to bake shells).
  4. Stuff taco shells with chicken and top with desired taco toppings.
Recipe Notes

*This chicken is a little on the spicy side due to the salsa verde but I think its perfect for most people. If you want it very kid friendly, then I would recommend reducing the salsa verde to 1/2 cup, honey to 1/3 cup lime juice to 1/4 cup.
**This recipe makes enough for 2 packages Flatout FoldIt Flatbread (24 mini tacos) but you can just make one package (12 mini tacos) if you prefer.
