  • 2 lbs boneless, skinless chicken thighs

  • 1 cup salsa
  • 2 tbs fresh lime juice
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro chopped
  • 2 tbs chili powder
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tbs honey

  • Line crockpot with a slow cooker liner or spray with non-stick cooking spray. Season chicken with salt and pepper and place in slow cooker. In a large bowl, mix remaining ingredients except for optional rice or tortillas. Pour over chicken; turn to coat. Cover and cook on low until chicken is falling-apart tender, 3 to 4 hours.
  • Turn slow cooker to warm and, using two forks, shred chicken. Serve over rice or with warmed tortillas, if desired.
