Cilantro Lime Chicken...YUM-O!

After posting this week's menu, I got a few requests for this recipe.  This has become one of our favorites lately.  My once a month freezer cooking club introduced us to it.  I love it because I can make it in the crock-pot AND everyone in the family will eat it!  This makes quite a bit so we usually eat it as chicken tacos or taco salad the first night and then use the leftovers to make nachos.

1,5 pounds of chicken
juice from 2 limes
1 bunch of fresh cilantro, chopped
1 16 oz. bag of frozen corn
2 minced garlic cloves ( I either leave this out or just do one...we aren't big garlic lovers)
1 can black beans
1 tsp cumin
salt and pepper to taste

Place all ingredients in a crock pot and cook on low for 8 hours. ( put my chicken in frozen and think 8 hours would be a bit too long...I usually do about 4 or 5 when cooking chicken.)  Shred and serve over tortillas or chips with your favorite toppings.

And just because it's Valentine's Day's a sweet coupon to use until Friday!
