This post, like its recipe is super quick and simple.
But sometimes those are the best things in life… especially as the holidays are approaching and we are all a bit short on time!
All you need is a crockpot. Chicken. Honey. Your favorite veggies (fresh or frozen). Spices. A lime (or lime juice). And chicken broth.
Place 1 1/2 cups of the broth in the crock pot. Add 3-4 large, thawed, boneless chicken breasts and top with 1/4 cup of honey, a few shakes of red pepper flakes, the juice of 1 lime, black pepper to taste, and 1 1/2 t of garlic powder (or more if you love garlic). Add 4-6 cups of your favorite veggies (or more) on top of the chicken. I used broccoli, peppers, onions, and carrots, along with a bag of frozen stir fry veggies (hello shortcuts!!!) Put on the lid. Put it on high for 4-6 hours. And when its done, you are left with a glorious pot of shred- able chicken and veggies.
It is great eaten as is. Or fajita-style. On a bed of spinach. Or even on spaghetti squash.
