Get ready to let your slow cooker work it’s magic and create a tantilizing chicken that is the perfect balance between sweet and tangy. This versatile slow cooker honey lime chicken will take you Mexican dishes to the next level. Use it for tacos, burritos or on a top of a fresh flavorful salad.
Now you are going to add some salsa verde to a bowl. You can pick your level of heat here. For my family, I use the mild version. Then you add in some honey and lime juice. You can adjust the sweet factor to your likeness. We love the full sweet flavor so we use the 1/2 cup of honey.
Next comes the spices. Add some chili powder, salt, onion powder, garlic powder, smoked paprika, and cumin to the bowl. Then whisk everything together and pour the mixture over the chicken. Then let this cook on low for 6-7 hours on low or high for 2-4 hours until fully cooked.
Once it’s cooked, you are going to want to remove most of the liquid from the slow cooker. I set some aside in a bowl, just in case I need more. The rest I get rid off. Then I shred the chicken. You want thte chicken nice and moist but not too liquidy. If it needs more liquid feel free to add some back in.Print
