Chili Cilantro Lime Chicken

I found this recipe when one of my friend shared it on facebook , i guess she got it from a gluten free website or something . Anyway i decided to try this recipe since it looks so mouthwatering , picture does wonder , you know . But also the ingredients are basically things that you have in the fridge , and i have pretty much everything on hand , except for the chicken . I bought the chicken few days ago , was trying to buy an organic chicken , buy it’s like buying 3 chicken for the cost of 1 chicken . I found the organic was 3 times the price of the regular one . I ended up picking up $6.00 chicken instead of $17.00 chicken !

4. Cover or place the chicken and the marinade in a ziploc bag , refrigerate overnight . The next morning just throw them all in the crock pot , cook on low for 6 hours . Chicken will be super tender , and falls off the bone easily . Serve with rice , or make chicken taco with it .
