Shredded Chicken Taco Meat

This recipe is so easy and delicious. I’ve doubled and tripled it before to freeze ahead and it works really well.  You can use it for tacos, enchiladas, tamales-the possibilities are endless!  It’s based on this recipe from Recipe Zaar, with some modifications.



-1 lb chicken breast
-1 cup chicken broth
-1 TBSP cumin
-1 tsp chili powder
-2 tsp onion flakes
-1/2 tsp garlic powder
-1/4 tsp salt
-1/4 tsp cayenne pepper


-Place all ingredients in a crock pot, making sure that the spices are incorporated with the chicken broth.

-Cook on low for 6-8 hours. I’m away from the house for 10 hours, so I cook on low for 6 hours and then my crock pot switches to “warm” and it works perfectly.


-Shred meat with a fork and stir it really well to incorporate all the liquid.


-If you freeze it, make sure to include the liquid.

-Serve with all the fixins’-My spread included salsa, guacamole, hot sauce, tomatoes, sour cream and cheese (both dairy and non-dairy), and beans atop corn tortillas.




Shaun loves this (even though it’s chicken breast!). He gave it a 4.  Lu loved it too and couldn’t get enough tonight.  It’s so easy and always a hit.
