Cilantro Lime Baked Chicken

READY IN: 1hr 45mins
Recipe by rickscott

I don't really remember why I decided this would be good to try. The family loved it so I kept fixing it. I also do these on the grill/smoker sometimes. If using a grill set up for indirect cooking. You could also use lemon, but my DIL seems to love the lime taste.

I made mine in the crockpot. I added a 1/2 cup of chicken broth to the crockpot and rubbed the outside of the chicken with butter and Adobo seasoning. I cooked it on high for about 4 hrs. It was delicious. I can't wait to try this on the grill!
