Number of Servings: 11


    2.5 lbs boneless skinless chicken breast halves
    3/4 cup chicken broth
    1/2 cup Zesty Italian Salad dressing
    1 Tbsp fresh lime juice
    1 Tbsp chili powder
    2 tsp onion powder
    1 tsp garlic powder
    1 tsp paprika
    1 tsp cumin
    1 tsp salt
    1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
    1/2 tsp cayenne pepper, optional (adjust according to desired heat preference or omit)


Makes 11 1/2 cup servings.


Place chicken breast halves in the slow cooker. In a mixing bowl whisk together remaining ingredients. Pour mixture over chicken in slow cooker, cover slow cooker with lid. Cook chicken on low heat 6 - 8 hours. Shred chicken (it's so tender I usually just shred it in the slow cooker without even removing it), then cook shredded chicken in broth in slow cooker an additional 30 minutes on low. Drain broth from chicken. Serve warm in tacos, burritos, enchiladas, quesadillas, taquitos etc.
