Ingredients for Cilantro Lime Chicken Bowls:
I'm digging how many fresh ingredients are in these chicken bowls. You could even sub out the pre-packaged taco seasoning for our homemade taco seasoning if you prefer.
- boneless, skinless chicken breasts
- taco seasoning
- fresh cilantro
- cauliflower rice (this will have a similar flavor to a cilantro lime rice)
- toppings: diced avocado, shredded cheddar cheese, green onions and sour cream
How to Make Chicken Bowls in the crockpot:
Here's how to get a TON of flavor in this cilantro lime chicken recipe.
Add the chicken breasts, taco seasoning, salsa, lime juice and cilantro in the slow cooker. Let that cook 6-8 hours on low so all those yummy flavors can meld together. 🙂
At the end of the day once the chicken is fully cooked, shred the chicken and cook the cauliflower rice. Put the cauliflower rice in bowls and top with the chicken.
Then add any great taco toppings that your heart desires. We like sliced avocado, shredded cheddar cheese, sliced green onions and sour cream.

What to serve with Cilantro Lime Chicken:
The beauty of a “bowl” is that it's a one meal dish (which I love)!
But, if you want to add a side I highly suggest any of these Taylor Farms Chopped Kits. The Avocado Ranch or the Guacamole Crunch would pair well with the cilantro lime chicken bowls. As always a side of fruit is never a bad idea or even a fruit salad. 🍇🍉🥝
