Tequila Chicken Tacos

Slow Cooker Tequila Chicken

Slow cooker recipes are some of my favorites for fall for a couple of reasons. First, a warm, savory meal is perfect for a cool day. And with life typically getting more hectic in fall, anything that makes less work to get dinner on the table is a win in my book. 

Here is one of my favorite, easiest slow cooker recipes that everyone loves. This was given to me by a friend and also makes a great party dish:

Slow-Cooker Tequila Chicken

5 lbs skinless boneless chicken breasts
2 large onions, chopped
2 large bell peppers, chopped
For juice:
Lime zest
4 limes
2 oz Tequila
1/2 cup water
1TBSP sea salt
1/2 TBSP coarsely ground black pepper
Pinch of ground cayenne to taste

Put chicken breasts into crock pot frozen. Cover with onions and peppers.

To make juice:
Zest two of the limes into bowl. Set limes aside for juicing. Juice all four limes – keeping even the pulp. Mix lime zest and juice with other ingredients and whisk together.
Pour over ingredients in crock pot.
Set crock pot to low for 8 hours.
Stir to shred the chicken
Serve with tortillas or over brown rice.
