I'm the only person in this world that could mess up a crock pot recipe, unless it's for an apple butter or chutney.
However, I found this recipe for Cilantro Lime Chicken, and it looked so good I could resist.
First off, instead of plain salsa, I used a generic brand of Peach Pineapple Chipotle Salsa, still 24 oz.
And instead of 2 jalapenos, I used 1 and 1 bell pepper.
And then it looked super chunky - like the picture to the right, so I added a can of Rotel Tomato and Chili sauce.
Oh, but I used 8 chicken thigh tenders instead of 4-6 breast halves. I just like dark meat more, okay?!
And then I put it on high, because I wanted it done in two hours.
HAHA! Didn't happen.
I set it on high for 4 hours, and by the time I had prepped everything and added it to the pot, it was at 3:47 remaining. That's an easy prep, yes?
Ended up with that as the cooking time, too.
However I had eaten by then, so it made 6 hearty lunch/dinner portions when added to my cilantro brown rice.
|Sorry, no pretty shots, just Tupperware.|
But when I did eventually try it, it was completely worth the wait! I can't wait to have this again, and maybe serve it with tortillas next time, too. So juicy and tender, you should try this one ASAP!!
