Preparation Time


3/5 cups lime juice
1 1/2 cups (2 medium) red onion thinly sliced
3 lbs skinless boneless chicken thighs
4 cups (4 medium) bell peppers sliced
1/4 cups cilantro minced
2 chili peppers finely chopped (seeds and ribs removed)
5 cloves garlic minced
2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
3 tsp brown sugar

1. Place the onions and chicken into the slow cooker.

2. Whisk the lime juice, garlic, Worcestershire sauce, brown sugar, chili peppers and cilantro in a bowl, then pour over the chicken.

3. Cook on low for 6 hours.

4. Change the setting to high, and stir in the peppers. Cover and cook for about 30 minutes (until the peppers are easily punctured with a fork). If you prefer, you can place the peppers on top of all the other ingredients and cook them for the whole 6 hours, they just get a little softer.

5. Transfer the chicken thighs to a bowl, remove the bones and shred the meat using two forks.

6. Using a slotted spoon, add the onions and peppers to the chicken and stir together. Add just enough sauce to keep the chicken moist.
