      I have this from Simple and Delicious magazine/ cookbook. It is so easy , delicious and low-fat. I followed the original instructions, which were to put the chicken breasts in the crock pot, mix 3-4 tablespoons of lime juice with the chili powder(I used taco seasoning instead-a better blend of spices) and to pour the mixture over the chicken. There was no need for the 1/2 cup of water, the chicken gives off plenty of juices. After the chicken was tender (mine took less than 3 hours), I shredded it and then put it back in the crock pot and added the salsa and corn. I added 1 cup of black beans also , and more lime juice and fresh cilantro. Heated through for 30-60 minutes. These are great and a lifesaver when you need a fast, easy dinner!They please everyone in my family too!

      This was super easy and delicious. I used frozen chicken breasts, so I eliminated the water. It turned out great! I will add a little more spice next time, since it was not hot enough for my taste. I added some green chilies and enchilada sauce to the leftovers to made a chicken enchilada caserole. Great muti-use recipe!
