Lime Chicken With Peppers

READY IN: 3hrs 50mins
Recipe by fpuhan

This is from the official Crock-Pot web site. I liked the mix of ingredients, and since most of the cooking is done in a slow-cooker, it's easy to prepare. Personally, I think the cilantro adds more than just garnish appeal -- it imparts a necessary flavor to the dish!

Lite and tasty. I put mine over rice instead of the noodles and it was great.
