Oh man, you are in for a treat with this Slow Cooker Cilantro Lime Chicken! As usually, this is a set it and forget it type recipe, with just a few small steps at the end.
I tried to make this dish taste like the Fiesta Lime Chicken that they have at Applebee's, but I wanted it to be super easy, and also a little bit healthier. So even though there is a cream sauce, it's made with just 1/2 cup of half and half plus 1 Tbsp of butter for the entire dish, which serves at least 4 people.

Ok back to the recipe at hand…
But just that little bit of creaminess goes so well with the tangy but acidic lime juice.
When you're preparing your chicken, make sure to butterfly them lengthwise – no one likes a giant super thick piece of chicken, right? Trust me, you want a high ratio of yummy sauce per each bit of chicken.
Serve it with a nice green vegetable, and maybe some rice. Yeah, rice would soak up that sauce really well.
