slow cooker garlic lime chicken

Attention busy people: You need to know about this recipe.  It's SOOO good.  We came home late last night from a week-long Southern CA vacation and I knew I couldn't get to the store until tomorrow.  I threw 7 ingredients that we had on hand into the slow cooker this morning (including frozen chicken breasts!) and when we came home from church we were wowed.  After trying the chicken my son asked for more "fancy chicken".  Fancy?!  We can have fancy chicken every busy night!
Thank you, Heidi for letting me raid your cookbook for some recipes while we were at your home!

slow cooker garlic lime chicken (my sister-in-law Heidi's cookbook)
4-6 boneless skinless chicken breasts (I used frozen)
1/2 cup soy sauce
1/3 cup lime juice
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
1/2 teaspoon ground pepper

Place chicken in slow cooker.  Combine remaining ingredients and pour over chicken.  Cover.  Cook on high for 4-6 hours or on low 6-8 hours.  Serve with rice and fresh fruits and vegetables.

What I have to say- a family favorite!


  1. Your comment about serving this with fresh fruit makes me wonder if it would be good in quesadillas with pineapple? I might have to try that tonight!

  2. I meant to add green chilies to give them some spice (but forgot) but I sauteed some bell pepper and onions with cumin and chili powder, and made quesadillas with the chicken (and beans, and cheese of course!) and pineapple, and everyone loved them! This chicken is very versatile!
