Make It Monday: Slow Cooker Cilantro Lime Chicken & Review of Kitchenmade Stainless Steel Cups




Whether you are trying to eat clean, low carb, paleo, or gluten-free, this recipe will fit in to any of those ways of eating. Plus you can quickly throw it in the crock pot and go to work or continue on with your day without worrying about supper, it will be hot and ready for you when you need it!

Slow Cooker Cilantro Lime Chicken

2 pounds boneless skinless chicken
2 C salsa
1 small red onion, chopped
1/3 C fresh cilantro, minced
juice of 1 lime

Directions:

  • Combine all ingredients in a 2 1/2 Qt slow cooker
  • Stir everything
  • Cook on Low for 8 hours or high for 5 hours
  • Serve over rice or quinoa.
  • Enjoy!


I was immediately impressed with the Kitchenmade Stainless Steel Measuring Cups before I even took them out of the box and saw them because of the weight of the package. They are a good quality set of measuring cups that are made of 18/8 polished stainless steel. You can see from the picture that the set of 6 cups nest inside each other nicely so they don't take up a lot of room in your drawer or cupboard. The sizes include 1/4, 1/3, 1/2, 2/3, 3/4, and 1 Cup. The measurements are all engraved on them and include both the cup measurements and mL measuements. 

Each cup is one piece, meaning that the handles are not separate so they will not break off ever. These are great if you are trying to get away from using plastics. I have some glass measuring cups, but they don't get smaller than 1 C and don't next inside each other as nicely as these do. Plus these stainless steel cups are great for measuring dry ingredients and leveling off with the back of a butter knife.

These measuring cups will last a long time. It will probably be the last set of measuring cups I will ever need to get.

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

The chicken looks amazing and I will have to make it this week. I so choose to use the stainless steel over the plastic measuring cups and even the measuring spoons also. Thanks for the recipe.

I have never used a slow cooker. I do love cilantro and lime... I use them on every meal I cook.

One of these day I will get a slow cooker so I can make some of these delicious dishes! That Cilantro Chicken dish looks really good! So do those stainless steel measuring cups-I like that the handles will not break off and they can be re used over and over and over again.
