Crockpot Lime Chicken

So today is my first day back at school after an amazing two week vacation. Going back to reality is always hard, but especially harder when you spent your vacation in Hawaii and California and returned to VERY cold winter weather. As a result, all I want to eat are warm hearty meals, like pasta and pizza. But since I spent my time off eating way too much amazing food, today’s post attempts to achieve my goal of warm and hearty, while also staying somewhat healthy. And this dish is very versatile because you can serve it in a tortilla, on a salad, on rice, or on its own with some veggies on the side.
