Quick shredded chicken (Mexican chicken)

You’ll need:

4 medium chicken breast (4 cups shredded)

1 yellow onion diced (1 cup)

1 packet taco seasoning

1 tbsp garlic salt

6 tbsp butter or bacon grease

Salt and pepper

1/2 cup fresh Cilantro

I like to buy bulk packs of chicken and cook in bulk. So when I buy a big pack of chicken for the week I will pre cook the chicken, leave some whole and shred some. I freeze them and take them out when needed for fast cooked chicken. You can also place chicken in pressure cooker and set to 8-10 minutes and cook chicken, remove and shred.

Once you have shredded chicken your almost done. In a sauté pan add butter or bacon grease to pan and sauté onions until translucent. Add the chicken to pan and 1/2 cup chicken broth. (When I freeze pre made chicken I freeze broth with it ?) or just use boxed broth. Add in taco season packet, garlic salt and chopped cilantro. (Keep some for garnish) let simmer for 4-6 minutes for seasoning to meld with chicken. Salt and pepper to taste. To keep warm for serving(tacos, use for nachos, or burritos) place into crock pot on low! Enjoy

I like to have a taco bar for easy parties. Serve with shredded lettuce, grated cheese, diced tomatoes, sliced jalapeños, sliced back olives, salsa, sour cream and cilantro. Can also serve a side of beans and rice! ?
