Slow Cooker Cilantro Lime Chicken

I made 1/2 of this recipe. I used my 2 qt crockpot and put the thawed chicken in at 7:45 in the morning. It was done perfectly when we got home from church about 12:45. We both really liked it. I used a whole jalapeno and removed the seeds.

Slow Cooker Cilantro Lime Chicken

In a slow cooker, mix together:

One 24-ounce jar medium or mild salsa
Juice from one lime
1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
One 1.25-oz. package taco seasoning
2 jalapeno peppers, finely chopped (optional)

Add 4-6 boneless chicken breast halves (completely defrosted) to the slow cooker and coat with the salsa mixture. Cover and cook on Low for 6 hours.
Serve the chicken with the salsa mixture spooned over the top. If you're feeling crazy, throw a dollop of sour cream on top with some crushed tortilla chips.

This is also delicious as a taco filling or in a taco salad.
