Honey Cilantro Chicken

Honey Cilantro Chicken

Honey cilantro chicken is one of the best crockpot chicken recipes ever! You can add it into a crunch wrap with cut da carb, you can add it to your rice bowls, I love creating greek style bowls and adding pickled onions, and feta cheese … or even to a quesadilla with some cheese. Ok now I am hungry!

I have been making this recipe since the very beginning of my macro journey and it never gets old! It is so tender and we all know how much I love my crock pot recipes.

I love this on it’s own but if you are really looking to spice it up, adding it to a pan before serving and crisping it up a bit gives it a flavor like no other! It is so good.
