Cilantro Lime Chicken

This is a great freezer meal.  You can put is all in a big freezer bag and then dump and run as I call it.  Dump it in the crock pot just before you have to run out the door.  I actually put it all in the night before then pulled it out of the fridge in the morning and started it.  I had some extra kids for dinner and they all loved it.  You just need to make sure you use a slotted spoon when getting the meat mixture out of the crock pot otherwise the juice can be a bit messy.  A great meal!
