- 1/2 red onion, chopped

- juice of 1 lime
- 1/4 c. packed fresh cilantro
- Place chicken in the bottom of your crockpot.
- Puree all the remaining ingredients in a blender or food processor until well combined and smooth.
- Pour over chicken breasts and cook on low for 7-8 hours. Shred using two forks. Serve on soft corn or flour tortillas with your favorite taco toppings such as guacamole, cheese, salsa, and lettuce. Or serve it on a bun or English muffin. Actually, it doesn't really matter what you serve it with because it's delicious no matter how you eat it!
