Crockpot Cilantro Lime Chicken is an easy freezer chicken crockpot meal. When prepping this freezer meal the smell of the lime juice and cilantro was amazing. I wanted to cook it right then and there so I could eat it.  This meal is also gluten free (just serve with gluten free tortillas or over rice).

Crockpot Cilantro Lime Chicken is a great freezer meal!

This easy freezer meal only takes minutes to assemble and will slowly cook all day to an incredible dinner. Now I have to warn you that once it’s cook that it does not look very pretty but it does taste incredible! I served it on tortillas for the family and used toppings such as shredded cheese, sour cream and avocados. For myself I used romaine lettuce and made it into a lettuce wrap. I will definitely make this crockpot meal again!  It would also be delicious served over rice.  When preparing as a freezer meal you can freeze the chicken raw and then cook it in the slow cooker for best results.

    I really like crockpot recipes and when you do freezer recipes. I like your new toolbar(if that’s what you call it) at the top of the page. It looks great. thx

    Do you need to cook the chicken before freezing it?! Or freeze the chicken raw and let it cook in the crock pot? Thanks for the recipe, looks yummy!

      You can freeze it raw and it will cook perfectly in the crock pot. This is also really good over rice!

    I have a huge amount of people coming for the holidays and these recipes will be a lifesaver between working and entertaining. Put it in the crockpot in the morning for dinner that night. I did what I call the cheater method. Doubled the recipes and used crockpot liners. Instead of putting them in ziplock bags I put the liner in a empty 5 qt ice cream tub, fill it and twist tie it shut. Freeze it them remove it from the container. I have a large rival crock pot and the bag fits perfectly in it out of the freezer.

    Delicious! Makes a ton too (BO-NUS!) for serving over rice and then later in flour tortilla shells. Was pleasantly surprised by the flavor – not your typical mexican flavoring. Enjoyed by everyone (2 to 52)!

    if you are just doing the original recipe for 4-6 servings, what size crockpot do you use? Seems like a 5 at would be way too big for just two chicken breasts. Thanks!

    Hello. Is it absolutely necessary to freeze the ingredients before cooking them, or is this just something you do to have crock pot meals on the ready?
