Ingredients

1 cup reduced sodium chicken stock

1 packet taco seasoning

1 lime, juiced

8 hard taco shells

Pantry Staples:

2 cloves garlic, minced

1 1/2 tsp. salt and pepper

Optional Toppings:

low-fat Cheddar cheese, shredded, optional

tomatoes, chopped, optional

onions, chopped, optional

low-fat sour cream, optional

taco sauce, optional

Romaine lettuce, shredded


Step 1

Combine

Place the chicken thighs in a slow cooker. Mix together the chicken stock, taco seasoning, lime juice, chopped garlic, salt and pepper. Pour broth over chicken thighs.

Step 2

Shred

Cover the slow cooker and cook on low 6-8 hours. Chicken is done when the meat falls apart easily. Remove thighs from slow cooker. Shred the meat and discard the bones. Place the meat back into the slow cooker with the juices to keep warm.

tip TIP

TIP: If you don't have a slow cooker, use a Dutch oven and bake at 300°F for 2 to 3 hours until the chicken shreds easily.

Step 3

Serve

Serve shredded chicken in warm taco shells. Top with choice of shredded lettuce, cheddar cheese, chopped tomatoes, chopped onions, sour cream or taco sauce.

tip TIP

TIP: Make healthy substitutions by topping with Greek-style yogurt instead sour cream or replacing hard taco shell with a lettuce leaf wrap.
