Slow Cooker Chicken Carnitas are so easy that anyone can make them! Broiling them after removing from the slow cooker makes them lightly browned, a little crispy, and extra delicious. Perfect for tacos, burritos, salads, and burrito bowls!
Place chicken breast in a slow cooker followed the rest of the ingredients on the list except for cooking spray. Stir together well and set slow cooker to low for 7-8 hours or high for 4-5 hours.
When the chicken is done gently pull apart the cooked chicken breast, but do not shred. Spread out onto a sheet pan that's been lined with aluminum foil and then sprayed with cooking spray.
Remove about 3/4 of cooking juices from the slow cooker and pour all over the top of the chicken. Spray the top of the chicken with a little bit more of cooking spray.
Broil for 5-10 minutes or until you get lightly browned edges on the chicken.
Serve with tacos, burritos, salads, or burrito bowls! Enjoy!
optional: sprinkle with freshly chopped cilantro and squeeze with extra lime.
