This Slow Cooker Cilantro Lime Chicken is one of my no-fail dinner recipes. Tender, flavorful chicken cooked in a zingy sauce, it’s so delicious. Enjoy the juicy chicken or wrap up the shredded ingredients into a tortilla. And all done in your slow cooker, so it's super easy, less work too!

There is plenty of room to turn up the heat on this recipe, if that's your thing, and it it also easy enough to keep it on the mild side. Tailor it to your liking!
Serve the chicken with the salsa mixture spooned over the top. If you're feeling crazy, throw a dollop of sour cream on top with some crushed tortilla chips and extra cilantro.
This is also delicious as a taco filling or in a taco salad. If you don't have taco seasoning on hand or if you want to know exactly is in your taco seasoning, make your own!
