Shredded Chicken Tacos

October 29, 2011 in Main Dishes

One of our new favorite things to eat is shredded chicken tacos.

They are super delicious, and probably the easiest thing I make!

In the morning before school I throw about 6 chicken breasts, one jar Zapata fire roasted salsa, and about 2 cups bone broth into the crockpot.

I usually set it on 8 hours because that allows us to eat an early dinner.

(Sidenote: I have no idea why that salsa is so much money on Amazon, but it is only like $3 at Publix.)

(Sidenote 2: It is by far the yummiest salsa ever! )

Once the chicken is done, I scoop it out and then shred it using a wood spork or something.

It falls right apart.

The first time I made it Avery could not stop picking at it!

Avery’s taco started with a blue corn taco shell and included pinto beans, chicken, raw goat milk cheddar cheese, salsa, and sour cream.

I had an Ezekial’s sprouted corn tortilla with mixed greens, beans, chicken, cheese, salsa and sour cream.

And Van just had a bowl with beans and chicken.

Shane wasn’t home.

Sorry dude.

If you wanted to make it more Paleo/Primal, you could leave off the beans and serve it as a lettuce wrap!

And in closing, here is a lovely picture of some of the important ingredients!

    Made these for Halloween last night! The kids loved them and thank you for the positive note back. Sometimes blogging can feel one way, but it is definitely not! Have a great week!

    Making this today. I bought boneless chicken breasts. Do you think that will work? Will it take less time in the crock pot than bone-in? So excited to try it that I don’t want to end up with dry chicken. Again, love your posts!
