New Recipe: Tequila Lime Chili Chicken [in the crockpot]

I have a very strong addiction to the Whole Foods hot bar. I have to limit myself to going just once a week because I go crazy and stuff my box to the brim and end up with a total of usually upwards of $15. One of the main reasons I love their hot bar & salad bar so much is because I eat the same proteins every day, every week, all year long. Crock pot chicken breast, 99% lean ground turkey, egg whites, plain 0% fat Greek yogurt, and fat free Cottage Cheese. So whenever I go to Whole Foods, they have at least four different types of chicken breast at all times (Cajun, BBQ, Lemon Herb, Tequila Lime) so this keeps things exciting for my taste buds! My favorite is definitely the Tequila Lime Chicken. I tried to get one of the Whole Foods chefs/cooks to tell me how they make it but he was very discreet and wasn’t really “allowed” to disclose the secret recipe to me. So, I decided to make my own and I’m very pleased with it! Here is the recipe:

{not what my recipe will actually look like!]

Ingredients:

– 5-7 large chicken breasts

-2 limes

-1 orange

-1 can Bud Light Lime beer

-Tequila Lime Seasoning (from Whole Foods)

-Chopped jalapenos (maybe about 1/4 cup)

-1 green bell pepper (sliced)

-1 small can diced green chilis

Directions: Place chicken in the crockpot and turn it on HIGH. Season with Tequila Lime Seasoning. Put green bell pepper, jalapenos, and green chilies ontop of chicken. Cut the lime and orange and squeeze all the juice out into the crockpot. Pour beer over chicken, cover, and cook on high for ~8-10 hours. 

**You could add 1/4 cup of tequila if you wish to the crock pot! **
