I was going to make this recipe but I'm missing the key ingredient lol. Any suggestions?

I was going to make Slow Cooker Lime Chicken with Rice, but somehow in my pregnant state I managed to misplace my bottle of lime juice that I just bought lol. Should I try it with lemon, or just switch recipes?

  • Use the lemon and add a 1/8teaspoon of apple cider vinegar to each 2 tablespoons of lemon juice. Believe it or not limes are a tad bit sweeter than lemons and the apple cider vinegar will balance it out.

  • Try it with lemon, it'll be Slow Cooker Lemon Chicken With Rice instead!

  • the Lemon will work OR if you have it, you could mix 1/4 orange juice with 3/4 lemon juice. It will end up tangy yet sweet like the lime version would.
