This is one of my new favorite recipes and it’s so simple! It takes a while to cook (but not to prepare), so it’s good for a Sunday. I found the recipe in Sheryl Crow’s new cookbook If It Makes You Healthy. Even though the book is not SCD I like that it is geared toward healthy eating. There are a lot of interesting recipes that I look forward to trying or converting to make a SCD recipe (if possible).
Slow Cooked Chicken for Tacos
- 1 1/2 cups chicken broth
- 1 1/2 cups salsa
- 1 tbsp lime juice
- 1 tbsp chopped cilantro
- 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
Add broth, salsa, lime juice, and cilantro to a large, deep pan (one that you can cover) and stir to mix
Heat until the mixture just starts to bubble
Add chicken breasts
Reduce heat to medium-low and cover pan
Simmer chicken for two hours
Remove chicken to a large bowl and allow to cool a little, reserve liquid from pan
Pour half the liquid over the chicken and shred chicken with a fork adding more liquid as needed
Serve in lettuce wraps, or over a salad, or pretty much however you would like.
This goes great with black beans!
