Crock Pot Lime Chicken and Rice
I always make some corn and mix it together when I serve it. Something about the corn really brings out and compliments the lime.
*Instead of adding instant rice, I just added some leftover rice I had cooked already. Black beans just seemed to go with this meal as well as a little cilantro. Jeff and the kids mixed the chicken, rice, beans, and corn together and ate it over chips with a little sour cream. The next day I had leftovers on a tortilla.
As a side note, I got to use one of my favorite kitchen gadgets for this recipe: the garlic press. If you love cooking with garlic, this is a must! I use it weekly! Though I still get some garlic smell on my fingers (from peeling the garlic), the press saves me from having to finely chop it. Let me know what gadgets you can't live without--or if you have a secret for getting onion/garlic smell off your fingers!
