{crock pot} Shredded Lime Chicken Tacos

You know you've just got those go-to meals that are guaranteed to be easy and delicious. This is that kind of meal.  It's been on repeat for years and it never gets old.  The meat is so juicy, tender and just bursting with flavor. It's also good served as a quesadilla with cheese. Try it once and I guarantee it will become a regular on your menu as well (you know what they say....once you go lime, you don't go back!)

*as a disclaimer, I attempted homemade tortillas which were a semi-epic fail. They tasted good, but looked more like a flat bread than a tortilla. So ignore that part and just focus on how amazingly delicous this chicken is ;)

2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (if you use more chicken breasts, just increase the remaining ingredients)
1/8 cup red wine vinegar
1/4 cup chicken broth
Juice from 1 large lime
1 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
2 green onions, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 teaspoon dried oregano
3 Tbs chopped cilantro
8 (6 inch) flour tortillas

Optional toppings: diced tomato, shredded lettuce, shredded Monterey Jack cheese, salsa, sour cream, cilantro, guacamole, lime

Add chicken and all other ingredients (except toppings) into the crockpot and cook on low 5-6 hrs, shred chicken during the last hour of cooking. Spritz a little more lime on the chicken then serve in warm tortillas with toppings of your choice.
