One of my favorite things about Chicken Taco Meat is how flexible a dish it is. I sometimes serve it with tortillas, lettuce, tomatoes, salsa, and cheese for chicken tacos. Other times I serve it on lettuce (with the fixings!) for a delicious chicken taco salad. I have even included it in casseroles.
For fix-your-own tacos and salads, I like to put out:
- shredded Chicken Taco Meat
- lettuce (cut large for salads or shredded for tacos)
- chopped tomatoes
- chopped avocado
- diced onions
- shredded cheese
- chopped cilantro
- sour cream
- tortillas (for tacos!)
I like to bake my Chicken Taco Meat in the oven, because I think the flavors are more intense, but I have also made it in the crockpot. If you prefer to use a crockpot, just cook it for four hours on high, then shred the meat.
- 1 tablespoon onion powder
- 2 teaspoons salt
- 2 teaspoons chili powder
- 1½ teaspoons garlic powder
- ½ teaspoon oregano
- 1 teaspoon cumin
- 4 chicken breasts
- ½ cup chicken stock
- (optional: use 3 T pre-made taco seasoning instead of above spices)
- Preheat oven to 350°
- Combine all spices in a small bowl.
- Place chicken breasts on baking pan.
- Sprinkle most of the spices on the chicken breasts.
- Pour chicken stock gently over spiced meat.
- Sprinkle remaining spices on chicken breasts.
- Bake for around 40 minutes, or until meat reaches 165°
- Shred meat with two forks and serve with taco fixings.
