Taquitos, Baja Bonanza Cilantro Chicken

From my hubby and 52 Weeks p. 12 by Jill McKenzie
Makes plenty of chicken. We usually fry up about 6-8 taquitos.

Baja Bonanza Cilantro Chicken  (I usually make half this much and still have leftovers)
2 pounds frozen chicken breasts
2 14-ounce cans chicken broth (or about 4 cups water with bouillon)
1 lime, cut into wedges
1 handful chopped, fresh cilantro (or a squeeze or two from my refrigerated Gourmet Garden cilantro)
1 TBSP chopped garlic
1 teas. dry mustard (or a squirt of prepared)
1 teas. ground cumin
1 teas. chili powder
2 teas. seasoned salt

Place the frozen chicken and chicken broth in the bottom of your crock pot. Squeeze lime over chicken, and add two of the wedges with the chicken. Add remaining ingredients and stir. Cook on low for about 8 hours. Shred chicken with two forks.
This can be used for many a wonderful purpose... burritos, tacos, salads, enchiladas, or chicken sandwiches. We divide it up into corn tortillas (handmade style are the best!) and fry them up in the frying pan to make taquitos. They are soo good!
