This has quickly become one of our favorite dinners in our house. My husband and I add jalapenos and hot sauce. My son loves these topped with cheese and sour cream as well. It's from a bunch of different recipes; I just took out what I loved most about each one and threw it together. It's quick and easy, and with the leftover chicken (when there is any) I make a pot pie or chicken and dumplings.

  • Season chicken with seasoned salt. Rub half the garlic on the inside surfaces of the chicken's cavity and leave them inside. Squeeze 8 lime quarters into the cavity; drop the squeezed quarters into the cavity. Place the chicken atop the foil balls. Squeeze 8 more lime quarters over the outside of the chicken; drop squeezed lime quarters into the bottom of the crock. Rub remaining garlic over the outside of the chicken and put garlic in the bottom of the crock. Pour white wine into the crock.

  • Cook on Low until the chicken meat pulls apart easily, 5 to 6 hours.

  • Remove chicken to a cutting board. Remove meat from bones and shred completely. Serve chicken on warmed tortillas with cilantro for topping and lime wedge.

Cook's Note:

You can always substitute chicken broth for the wine.

My family devoured the chicken. I did omit the wine. I would have used chicken broth instead but felt it wasn't needed. The chicken produces a ton of juice while cooking. I also did not use 8 limes. For cooking I used 4... 16 lime quarters and then I quartered 2 more so my family could add as much or as little lime as they wanted. Read More

Chicken is bland and too limey but not in a good way. I would omit lime wedges and just use juice and use chicken breasts instead and spice it up with some cumin or other spices. Read More

I really love this recipe. I have to agree with all the other reviews - too much lime. I modified by keeping the lime juice but reducing the number of the wedge 1/4 peels I added to the recipe. I put 2 wedges inside the chicken and one outside for less than 1 full lime but all 8 limes of juice. The other suggestion I have is to rub the garlic salt and other spices under the skin on the outside of the chicken. Enjoy! Read More

My son ate more of this chicken than I've ever seen him eat in one sitting. It was a bit bland so I'll add more seasonings next time. Used fewer limes and skipped the broth and wine. Read More
