Number of Servings: 8

Ingredients

    2 lbs boneless skinless chicken breasts (about 4-5 chicken breasts)
    1 onion, thinly sliced
    1 red bell pepper, sliced in half-circle slices
    1 green bell pepper, sliced in half-circle slices
    2 teaspoons chili powder
    1 teaspoon ground cumin
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1/2 cup chicken broth
    2 tablespoons fresh lime juice

Tips

For Serving:
Low carb tortillas
Mexican grated four-cheese blend or grated cheddar
sour cream
guacamole
salsa or chopped fresh tomatoes
minced cilantro


Directions

Trim all visible fat and tendons from chicken breasts, and cut chicken into 1 inch crosswise slices. Place chicken in crockpot.

Cut both ends from onion, then peel, cut in half top to bottom, and cut into half-circle slices. Add onion to crockpot. Cut ends from red and green bell pepper, cut in half top to bottom, remove seeds and membranes, and cut into half-circle slices. (Cut up the stem and bottom end too.) Add bell peppers to crockpot.

Squeeze lime juice over chicken, onions, and peppers in crockpot. In a small bowl stir chili powder, cumin and salt into chicken broth. Pour over chicken. Cover and cook on low for 6-7 hours or on high for 3-4 hours, or until tender.

Spoon chicken and vegetables into warmed tortillas and serve with toppings. This is also delicious just served on a plate, with cheese melted over and other toppings added.


Serving Size:Makes 8 servings, each serving with 3 to 4 ounces chicken.
