Slow Cooker Cilantro Lime Chicken Sliders
When I told my husband what I was making he was skeptical and took an unseasoned portion of chicken for himself to smother in barbecue sauce. Then I let him have a bite of the finished product and he was surprised, “whoa! this is really good!” I told you it’d be good. Why did you even doubt me?
Basically this is a light chicken salad sandwich with mexican flare. You can serve the chicken cold or hot, it’s up to you. I served mine warm. If you’re axing carbs from your diet you can serve this chicken as a lettuce wrap or serve it with an avocado. If you freely eat carbs serve the chicken on a bun, roll or wrapped in a tortilla.

What Slow Cooker Did You Use?
To make Slow Cooker Cilantro Lime Chicken Sliders I used my small 3 quart slow cooker.* I love this little slow cooker because it’s super cute and it’s just the perfect size for side dishes, drinks or small meals. It fits into my sink so I can easily hand wash it and it fits in the bottom or top of my dishwasher so I can easily stick it in there to get clean. I try to use this 3 quart slow cooker any time I can!
