Chicken Tacos
My family loves this chicken for Taco Tuesdays, and I use them as a fallback meal at least once a week. I always keep a jar of my homemade taco seasoning on hand and chicken in the freezer so I can practically make this any night of the week.

Recipe Notes

Tidbits: My all-time favorite trick for shredding chicken quickly is to use handheld electric beaters on low speed. It shreds the chicken perfectly in no time at all!
