  • 2 tbsp fresh lime juice
  • 1 cup onion, diced
  • 1 green bell pepper, sliced
  • 1 red bell pepper, sliced
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced

2 In a medium bowl, whisk together the lime juice, broth, and Maggi. Stir in the other ingredients and then pour over the chicken.

3 Cook on low in the slow cooker for 4 hours. Then shred the chicken using two forks and serve. I usually like to let the shredded chicken hang out in all the cooking liquid/sauce for about 30 minutes before serving. Just keep the slow cooker on low.
