Sarah's Easy Shredded Chicken Taco Filling
Place chicken breasts into a saucepan and pour in enough water to cover. Place over medium heat, bring to a boil, and simmer until chicken meat is no longer pink, 10 to 12 minutes.Advertisement
Transfer chicken breasts to a bowl, allow to cool, and shred the chicken meat with 2 forks.
Heat vegetable oil in a small non-stick saucepan over medium heat, and cook and stir onion until translucent, 2 to 3 minutes.
Mix in the shredded chicken, cumin, chili powder, and tomato sauce; bring to a boil.
Reduce heat to low and simmer until chicken is hot and the flavors have blended, about 3 minutes.
Recipe yields 3 servings. Feel free to double it. One pound of chicken is equivalent to 3 small chicken breasts. The sauce will coat the chicken, it will not be sitting in it just like traditional ground hamburger for tacos. If you like it a little saucier, add a spoon of tomato sauce at a time to your taste.
Try using a Reynolds® slow cooker liner in your slow cooker for easier cleanup.
