Easy Shredded Chicken Tacos

Shredded chicken tacos are not a meal I grew up eating, but I am sure glad I discovered them.  I love this recipe.  It is super easy to put together and it is so delicious.  AND… I have the coolest tip for shredding the chicken.  I can shred all the meat and onions in 10 seconds.  I’m not kidding!  I timed it!  

So, let me give you the recipe first and then I’ll tell you my shredding hint.

Shredded Chicken Tacos
2 sweet onions, sliced into rings
5-6 frozen chicken breasts
2 tsp salt
2 TB cumin
1 1/2 TB chili powder
2 squirts lime juice
tortillas, heated if desired (corn if making this gluten free)
taco fixin’s (cheese, lime, lettuce, cilantro, sour cream, guacamole, etc.)

Spray the slow cooker with oil.  Place the sliced onions in the bottom of the crock pot.  Lay the frozen chicken (how cool is that?  No need to defrost the chicken!) on top of the onions.  Sprinkle the chicken with salt, cumin, and chili powder.  Squirt lime juice on top.  Cover and cook on low for 4-8 hours.  Shred the chicken and serve with all the fixin’s.

In the past, I have always grabbed two forks and shredded the chicken.  It shreds very easily, but it takes a little bit of time.  

Shredding Hint
My favorite way to shred hot meat now is to place all the meat and onions in my Bosch with the wire whisks attached.  I turn on the Bosch and 10 seconds later, the meat is shredded.  It is so amazing how fast it goes.  I love it!
