Made a delicious & light crockpot meal, I know some people don’t think of crockpot cooking in Summer, but why not? It doesn’t heat up the house like the oven, or stove & you can fix it & forget it while you go & play outside, or hide in the AC. Perfect!!
I had a recipe I was so eager to try for awhile & felt this was a great opportunity. As I think of meals I’m making to deliver to any of the Kai’s Village families I always try to think as clean & healthy as possible (I always include protein, unless it’s ever requested not to & I tend to try to include extra protein, like beans, etc.), but keeping in mind it should be kid-friendly too. I keep a list on Pinterest for some ideas & sometimes small changes. All the meals need to either be frozen, or freezer ready. I always make double & we eat as a family what we deliver. This is my 3rd time delivering to the same family & am already signed up for a 4th, so really, really hoping I haven’t made the same type of thing for them yet, but it’s probably bound to happen, as we keep a very tight food budget for our family & it’s sometimes hard to keep track as I tend to have a new mom delivery sprinkled in between my Village deliveries.
This is not my original recipe, here is the link to it here: Cilantro Lime Chicken, I made very few changes to the meal itself; here they are: BUT as always this recipe is Gluten-Free
