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.
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.
