Slow Cooker Taco Chicken

This tasty chicken is a great protein topper for more than just tacos!  Put in on a salad, on some quinoa, in a whole wheat pita...ANYTHING.  I love slow cooker recipes that I can quickly throw together and forget while it cooks.  Plus, it always leaves my house smelling yummy!

Slow Cooker Taco Chicken

2 lbs boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 Cup Water
2 Tbls Homemade Dried Onion Soup Mix (see below for recipe)
1 1/2 tsp chili powder
1 1/2 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp coriander
6-8 cloves garlic, smashed
1 Tbls dehydrated onion
Juice of 1 lime
Salt, to taste
Chipotle hot sauce, to taste

Place all ingredients except for lime, salt, and hot sauce in slow cooker and cook 5-6 hours on low, or until chicken shreds easily with a fork.  When done, shred the chicken and sprinkle with lime juice.  Taste and season with salt and hot sauce to taste.
