Saucy Shredded Chicken Tacos


This is the second recipe in the set of 3 that I am sharing from my new cookbook, Express Lane Cooking!

Monday I shared these Fire-Roasted Chicken Enchiladas. Now, using the same 5 ingredients you can switch up your dinner with these tacos!

They feature shredded rotisserie chicken, which is especially great for back to school time.

We only have a week of summer left, so I took my kids on a trip up north to escape the desert and get to some cooler air. While we were up in northern Utah, I stopped in to share this set of three recipes with my friends at Good 4 Utah! I whipped up these Saucy Shredded Chicken Tacos and after the show everyone gobbled them all up!

Take a peek at the segment!

I had a blast making all these recipes again, and seriously, with just 5 ingredients each, they are such a snap to make!

    Putting these on my menu plan. I think I’ll throw a couple of chix breasts into the crockpot with all of the saucy ingredients and see how that turns out. I’ll keep you updated. These look amazing.
