Slow Cooker Coconut Lime Chicken Recipe

I’ve got a delicious and light slow cooker recipe today that’s also PACKED with protein.


It’s perfect for days when you need a set-it-and-forget-it meal… or when you want a comfort meal but don’t want to heat up the kitchen by using your stove or oven.


Serve this with a side salad and rice (or cauliflower rice, yum!).



Slow Cooker Coconut Lime Chicken Recipe

(Serves 6)



     4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (about 2 lbs)

     14 oz can coconut milk

     Juice and zest of 2 limes

     2 garlic cloves, minced

     1 Tbsp coconut aminos or tamari

     1 Tbsp Nature's Hollow honey

     ½ tsp ground ginger

     ¼ tsp red pepper flakes (optional, for heat)

     Salt and pepper, to taste

     Fresh cilantro, chopped (for garnish)

     Lime slices (for garnish)


Place the chicken breasts in the slow cooker. Season with salt and pepper.


In a bowl, whisk together the coconut milk, lime juice and zest, minced garlic, aminos or tamari, honey, ground ginger, and red pepper flakes (if using).


Pour the coconut lime mixture over the chicken in the slow cooker.


Cover and cook on low for 5 to 6 hours or on high for about 3 hours, until the chicken is cooked through and tender.


Once the chicken is tender, remove it from the slow cooker and shred it using two forks. Return the meat to the pot to soak up more sauce. Taste and adjust seasoning, if needed.


Garnish with chopped cilantro and lime slices. Serve with rice, quinoa, or steamed vegetables.



This is also fab for meal prep. Hope you love it.
