MAKE IT NOW
Add chicken, juice, chicken broth, lime juice, garlic, cilantro, beans, corn and cumin to a crockpot. Cover and cook on high for 3-4 hours or low 6 hours.
Remove chicken, shred then add back into slowcooker and heat until warm. Serve.
My favorite way to serve this is in homemade burrito bowls. Just add rice, sour cream, guacamole, cilantro and a squeeze of more lime for a super delicious meal. Or add to taco shells for Cilantro Lime Chicken Tacos. Or top over chips and add cheese, olives and salsa for Cilantro Lime Chicken Nachos.
