Cilantro Lime Chicken
This crock pot recipe rocks! It can serve as a summer meal with the cilantro and lime kick, or as a comforting fall meal with the yummy gravy sauce that smothers the chicken. Absolutely wonderful, I hope you enjoy!
3-4 Chicken Breasts
1 can low sodium chicken broth
1 large sweet onion
1 cup cilantro
¼ cup wheat flour
Chili powder, cumin, 2 minced garlic cloves, sea salt
Season chicken with spices and add to the crock pot. Chop onion and layer
around the chicken.
Next, pour 1 cup of chicken broth into the crock pot.
Juice 4 limes into the crock pot. Set to low for 4 hours for defrosted chicken.
When finished cooking, remove chicken and set aside. Add the flour to the crock
pot and chop about ½ cup of cilantro. Whisk well and turn the crock pot to high for
about 20 minutes for the sauce to thicken.
Top the chicken with the sauce and garnish with cilantro and sliced avocado.
I serve with Cilantro lime quinoa and black beans.
