  • Slow Cooker Salsa Verde Honey Lime Chicken Tacos

    This chicken is delicious in tacos, and then I used the leftovers for taco salad the next day. Chicken would also work great for burritos.

    Recipe adapted from Carlsbad Cravings.

    Ingredients:

    • 2 lbs. boneless skinless chicken breasts
    • 1 TBSP olive oil
    • 1 c. Herdez mild or medium salsa verde 
    • 1/3-1/2 c. honey
    • 1/2 c. lime juice
    • 1 1/2 tsp. chili powder
    • 1 1/2 tsp. salt
    • 1 tsp. onion powder
    • 1 tsp. garlic powder
    • 1/2 tsp. smoked paprika
    • 1/2 tsp. cumin
    • 1/4 tsp. pepper

    Directions:

    1. Rub chicken breasts with olive oil and place in the bottom of your slow cooker. Add all of the remaining ingredients . 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).
    3. 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.

    3. In a separate mixing bowl, whisk together sour cream and salsa verde until combined. Place a large spoonful of the salsa verde mixture into the bottom of the prepared 9×13 pan and spread it out in a light, even layer, just enough to wet the bottom of the pan.
    4. Assemble enchiladas by placing a big scoop if the chicken filling onto the center of a tortilla. Roll up the tortilla, tucking in the ends as you go. Lay it in the pan. Repeat with the remaining tortillas.
    5. Pour the remainder of the salsa verde mixture over the top of the assembled enchiladas. Sprinkle the monterey jack cheese over the tops of the enchiladas to cover.
    6. Bake in the preheated 375 degree oven for about 30 minutes, until the cheese is bubbly and lightly browned. Place under the broiler setting for 2-3 minutes for extra browning. Garnish with more freshly chopped cilantro if desired.
