Crockpot Tex Mex Shredded Chicken and Upcoming CSN Review

First of all, I love CSN Stores. If you don't already know, they have over 200 online stores with pretty much everything you can image. Including luggage stores, baby stores, furniture stores, home decor stores, and the list goes on. Just last month I bought a pot rack from CSN Stores and I love it! I have so much more space in my cupboards now and I don't have to dig around in it to find what I need. Plus, it looks great. Anyway, CSN has offered me the opportunity to do a product review for them so be looking forward to that coming up soon!
Another thing I love is easy chicken recipes. We eat chicken a lot around here. Much more than any other meat. So i'm always excited to find new recipes to try. This one makes a great filling for tacos or burritos. Just wrap it up in a tortilla with whatever condiments you want (lettuce, salsa, sour cream, cheese, etc.) and you have a good meal! I for one could eat mexican food just about everyday, it's my absolute favorite.
Crockpot Tex Mex Shredded Chicken
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 1/4 teaspoon cumin
1 tablespoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon coriander
1/4 teaspoon paprika
1 1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
1/3 cup chicken broth
1/3 cup (packed) cilantro leaves, chopped
2 limes
1 large onion, chopped
1 jalapeno, seeded and minced
4 garlic cloves, minced
1 tablespoon olive oil

Heat the oil in a medium sized sauté pan. Add the onion and sauté for 5 minutes. Add cumin, chili powder, coriander, paprika and garlic and sauté two more minutes. Deglaze the pan with the chicken broth making sure to scrape up any browned bits. Turn off and set aside.
Sprinkle the chicken with salt and pepper. Add to crock pot. Pour lime juice on top, then add cilantro, jalapeno, and pour the onion and garlic mixture over top.
Cook on low for 3-5 hours, or until cooked through and tender. Remove chicken breasts from the crock pot, shred and place in a bowl. Scoop out the onions and add to the chicken. Depending on the amount of juices produced, you may want to add some or all of the juice back to the shredded chicken. Follow TawnyAlexander on Twitter
