This is a staple for my low carb tendencies! However, I love this dumped all over my Cilantro Lime Rice. So flavorful and easy. The aroma while cooking definitely causes some salivating.

The flavors in this easy Crock Pot meal are out of this world. There is a hint of heat from the chili powder, but you really taste the lovely citrus flavor from the lemon and lime. The chicken becomes so tender and juicy. It's guilt free and easy to make... the perfect combination! Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen

How to Make Lime & Lemon Chili Chicken for the Crock Pot

Step-by-Step

  1. Rub the chicken down with the salt and spices and arrange in the Crock Pot.
  2. Add the garlic, onion, lime zest, and chilies.
  3. Pour juice over all the chicken.
  4. Cook on low for 5 hours in your Crock Pot.
