If you love the tangy flavors in a margarita, you will love this super easy slow cooker chicken dish!

It’s so versatile, you can make a lot of it and create several different meals with it. Serve it alone, over rice, on a salad, in a tortilla, in a pita, in chicken tortilla soup, in a mexican chicken dip, …In a house with a mouse, in a box with a fox, … oh wait… this isn’t green eggs and ham??  But my point is that there are so many options for this chicken.

It’s also unbelievably easy, with about 15 minutes prep time. Just set it and forget it.
