Crockpot Tuesday

Here's another yummy chicken recipe we did this week. Super simple and all items we had on hand, which is my favorite part!

Lime & Oregano Chicken

2 huge chicken breasts, quartered
1/4 C melted butter
1 packet of Italian seasonings
2 Tbsp dried oregano
1 Tbsp lime juice

Place cup up chicken in bottom of crockpot. Mix butter, lime juice, oregano and ------ together and then pour over top of chicken. Cook on Hi for 4 hours. Since this recipe doesn't have a lot of liquid, I would open the crockpot and baste the chicken with the sauce every hour or so. If you won't be home while it's cooking, maybe add a cup of water, or better yet, chicken broth. If you're doing that, add extra lime, butter and oregano so the flavor isn't diluted.

This came out really, really great.. The chicken was tender and the flavor was perfect. I wouldn't change anything. The sauce was so amazing on this, so have some on the side so you can dip!
