The lime gives the chicken a nice and refreshing flavor but also keeps the chicken juicy!

6 servings

Prep Time:
10 minutes

Cook Time:

5.5 Hour


  • 1-1/2 pounds boneless skinless chicken breast halves
  • 3 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1 cup frozen corn, thawed
  • 1 cup chunky salsa
  • 12 fat-free flour tortillas (6 inches), warmed
  • Optional: Sour cream, pickled onions, shredded lettuce and shredded cheddar or Cotija cheese


  1. Place chicken in a 3-qt. slow cooker. Combine lime juice and chili powder; pour over chicken. Cook, covered, on low until chicken is tender, 5-6 hours.

  3. Stir in corn and salsa. Cook, covered, on low until heated through, about 30 minutes.
  4. Place filling on tortillas; if desired, serve with sour cream, pickled onions, lettuce and cheese.
