Gluten-Free, Casein-Free Cilantro Lime Chicken

Gluten-Free, Casein-Free Cilantro Lime Chicken is a simple freezer meal. This is one of those meals that makes your mouth water when you walk in the house after a long day!

Gluten-Free, Casein-Free Cilantro Lime Chicken is one of those meals that makes your mouth water when you walk in the house after a long day!  I love using my slow cooker and being able to walk into the house and have dinner on the table for my family.  This is a delicious gluten free and dairy free recipe.  It is perfect if you are eating low carb or following the Keto  Diet.

This is a dump and go slow cooker recipe.  Simply place salsa, cumin, granulated onion, cayenne pepper, lime juice, and cilantro into a slow cooker and stir to combine. Add the chicken breasts, and stir to coat with the salsa mixture. Cover the slow cooker and set on LOW for about 4 hours. That is it!

After four hours remove chicken from crockpot and shred with 2 forks.  Or you can shred using a Kitchen Aid Stand Mixer.   Serve immediately with taco shells, on a low carb tortilla or on top of a bed of lettuce with toppings.  I like it with cheese and sour cream.

The leftover meat makes a terrific salad the next day too! You can prep this recipe on a Sunday and have lunch ready for the week!  I hope your family enjoys this Gluten-Free, Casein-Free Cilantro Lime Chicken as much as mine does!
