I looooove sharing cheap easy meals!!
So here's a new Crock-Pot recipe for you: FIESTA LIME CHICKEN🐓
It's a great meal if you're cooking for kiddos! Or if you're like me and looking to meal prep for a few days without spending a ton of time and energy.
Save it and try making it yourself.
It took about 5 minutes TOTAL to prepare, and it tastes INCREEEEEDIBLE🤤🤤.
And you can make it anywhere a Crock-Pot will fit! -- Dorm room, hotel room, studio apartments, basements, etc.

It's up to you how you serve the chicken! (In tacos, burritos, or with rice and beans).
For me, I'll serve it over 200 grams of cooked brown rice. It's nutrient-dense (adds about 246 calories), cheap (it adds less than $.20 to the meal), easy, and all-natural.
Plus this recipe is super low in carbs, so this helps balance out the macro nutrients to make it a more balanced meal.
