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

Step 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.
