We are loving this light and healthy ginger lime chicken that you can easily freeze and then prepare in your slow cooker. Not only is it healthy it is delicious! It is simple to prepare. This recipe is Whole30 compliant and a paleo recipe plus it is naturally gluten free too! As you know I have been eating Whole30 and just completed my third round. During this round I relied heavily on the slow cooker to prepare our meals because we had so many soccer games and end of the school year activities. This was a moist and delicious dinner that the entire family enjoyed.
Be sure that you invest in a good quality slow cooker. Our favorite is this programmable cook and carry 6qt oval slow cooker. You can adjust this recipe to feed your family using 4-6 pieces of meat. I personally use 4 to feed my family of 3 with a leftovers for lunch the next day. I use 2 lbs of chicken in my recipe but you can adjust between 4-6 cuts of chicken.
I served this Slow Cooker Ginger Lime Chicken with roasted brussells sprouts and roasted potatoes. It is also delicious with cauliflower fried rice. We often times top it with pineapple salsa that we purchase at the grocery store or make our own. You may also enjoy this mango salsa recipe with it.
I hope your family enjoys this Ginger Lime Chicken as much as we do. It is light and healthy and a clean meal the whole family will enjoy.
