Yield: 2-4 servings

Sometimes I see a photo for a recipe on Tastespotting or Food Gakwer that looks so delicious I just have to re-create it. I love that with cooking and baking...

    Great recipe for healthy pulled chicken! My husband and I absolutely love Mexican flavors, and this chicken recipe seems very versatile – as a filling for tacos or quesadillas, as a sandwich or salad topper. Yum!

    Congrats to Stephanie!

    I had all the ingredients on hand (which is rare) and it was delicious with the right amount of spice.

    You should post your salsa recipe if you haven't yet.

    Hi! I have made this recipe several times, and it is fantastic! Thanks so much, I have transcribed it into my permanent recipe book.

    Oh, and instead of putting in salsa I still get good results just adding tomatoes and salsa “fixin's” to the pot.

    Thank you so much for this incredibly easy recipe and abolutely delicious meal. My 5-year old walked into the kitchen saying “what smells so delicious” and my husband said “you knocked it out of the park”. I am going to share with all my friends…this is a great meal for the weekly rotation. I served with chopped romaine & avocado on fresh corn tortillas with black beans mixed with rice on the side. I cooked with Salsa Senorita, Roasted Garlic – the perfect amount of heat (medium). Thanks again.

    I have to say, this recipe is great! My husband is a notoriously picky eater, which makes it hard to introduce new food, but he literally gobbled this up in no time. He's asked me to make it twice in the last week πŸ˜€
    Thank you so much!!!!

    Scott — April 25, 2012 at 12:56 pm

    Wonderful recipe. My wife and I like a little more heat so we added a diced chipotle with a tablespoon of adobo sauce, and it was perfect!

    Holy crap! I made this recipe last night and both me and my husband were moaning with eat bite! It was that good!! (And my husband isn’t even a fan of Mexican food!)

    We ate it with crunchy taco shells and added some refried beans, guacamole, and some shredded cheese. This is entering our weekly menu! Thank you so much for sharing this recipe!!

    (I googled “pulled chicken tacos” and I’m so glad you were on the first page of results!!)

    I just made this tonight for dinner and it was delicious. My husband and 18 month old daughter loved it. I served it over rice with avocado on top and a side salad. I will definitely be making it again!

    also, I used greek yogurt as a substitute for the sour cream, and it was delicious.

    Really excellent. Only change I might consider is to brown the chicken on both sides first, and possibly trying thighs instead of breasts.

    I made this today. Easy and delicious! I used a red pepper salsa and added extra spice. The only downside is that my avocado wasn’t perfectly ripe…so I’ll save the avocado slices for the leftovers. :]

      Wonderful! Ugh doesn’t it seem like the avocados from the store are either rock hard and need days to ripen or they’re perfectly ripe and need to be eaten that day?!
