Lime Chicken Tacos Recipe

Lime Chicken Tacos Recipe

Our fun, simple recipe is perfect for taco Tuesdays or a relaxing dinner with friends. If we have any leftover filling, I toss it into a garden-fresh taco salad. —Tracy Gunter, Boise, Idaho
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 10 min. Cook: 5-1/2 hours YIELD:6 servings

Ingredients

  • 1-1/2 pounds boneless skinless chicken breast halves
  • 3 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1 cup frozen corn, thawed
  • 1 cup chunky salsa
  • 12 fat-free flour tortillas (6 inches), warmed
  • Sour cream, pickled onions, shredded lettuce, and shredded cheddar or cotija cheese, optional

Directions

  • 1. Place chicken in a 3-qt. slow cooker. Combine lime juice and chili powder; pour over chicken. Cook, covered, on low until chicken is tender, 5-6 hours.
  • 2. Remove chicken. When cool enough to handle, shred meat with two forks; return to slow cooker. Stir in corn and salsa. Cook, covered, on low until heated through, about 30 minutes. Place filling on tortillas; if desired, serve with sour cream, pickled onions, lettuce and cheese. Yield: 6 servings.

"Made the recipe exactly as written, but cut in half for just 2 of us. Used mild salsa, as we aren't big "heat" fans and kept the lime juice/chili powder ratio as is. Wonderful! We decided this is definitely "a keeper" and will be made again and again. So easy, so quick after chicken was cooked. Yum-Yum!"

"This is a great & easy "throw it together in 2 seconds" base chicken recipe for the crockpot. I used legs & thighs since it is what I had on hand. They were succulent, flavorful & the meat fell off the bone. Not dry, quite the opposite-lots of sauce, that's the difference between breasts & dark meat. I added cilantro & chopped green chilies for more flavor when I added the corn & salsa. Next time I'll add black beans to make a whole meal in a pot. Nice change from the usual, will make again."
