Cilantro Lime Chicken

This is one of our favorite go to meals...we love this spicy combo!

It's so easy to throw into the crock pot...only 5 ingredients. It's a fun meal too, there are so many toppings one can use...I usually go with lettuce, tomato, shredded cheese,onions and sour cream. I served it this time with flour tortilla's, but its great with hard shell taco's too.
I found this in a Taste of Home magazine several years ago,and I bet I make some version of it at least once a month. It's fun with different kinds of salsa,too!

 Cilantro Lime Chicken

1 (16 oz.) jar salsa
1/2 envelope taco seasoning ( can use more)
juice of one lime
6 Tbsp. cilantro, chopped
4-6 boneless chicken breasts

Place chicken in crock pot. Combine the rest of the ingredients and pour on top. Cook on low for 6-8 hours. Shred.  Serve with tortillas and favorite toppings.

This sounds really good but for some reason I just don't get cilantro. Bet I could substitute parsley or maybe basil for it, or a combination. I love the ease of this recipe!
