Slow Cooker Honey-Lime Chicken
’m back with another 3-in-1 slow cooker post for you! In case you are new, this is a blog series where I provide one base slow cooker recipe and three ways to use it. Last month we made slow cooker sweet potatoes, check out that post here! This month, it’s chicken time!
The point of this series is to make dinner time a LOT easier: make up a batch of the chicken on day 1, and use it in one of the recipes below. Days 2 & 3: come home from work, don’t worry about thawing anything out, because your chicken is already cooked! And because these recipes are very different from each other, I promise you won’t get bored of eating chicken for three days in a row!
And the best part is none of these recipes take longer than 30 minutes to prepare.
Before we get to the recipes, a little run-down on this recipe. Chicken breasts simmer in a mixture of honey, garlic and lime juice for 5 hours (low) or 2-3 hours (high).
Shred the chicken, and toss in the reserved cooking liquid. I didn’t quite use all of mine, but it was close!
For four chicken breasts I had about 4 cups of shredded chicken, which is enough to make the three recipes below (which all serve four portions).
