5 Minute, 5 Ingredient Chicken Tacos
Sometimes you just don’t have the time, energy or ingredients to cook an amazing dinner. Sometimes you just want a healthy, satisfying meal that doesn’t take much time or thought to prepare. This one does the trick, with only 5 ingredients and 5 minutes of prep time. It is a slow cooker recipe, so there is that pesky cooking time – but throw the ingredients in the cooker around noon, forget about it, and have dinner ready to go at six. Or – if you want it NOW, poach the chickenand skip the tomatoes to have it ready much faster.
4-5 organic chicken breasts
1 large (28 oz) can seasoned organic diced tomatoes (I used Muir Glen fire roasted tomatoes)
1 bunch heart of romaine lettuce leaves, rinsed clean and dried
1 avocado, cubed or sliced
Your favorite salsa or hot sauce to taste (I like Tapatio)
- Open the can of tomatoes, and pour 1/2 in the slow cooker. Add the chicken. Pour the other 1/2 on top.
- Cook on low 4-6 hours until you can easily shred the chicken with a fork.
- Shred the chicken with fork and scoop into lettuce leaves.
- Top with avocado and hot sauce
Obviously, you can make this dish more exciting. Squeeze some lime on it and top it with homemade salsa, and/or with shredded pickled cabbage or other vegetables. Or cook the chicken with chicken broth, garlic, coconut aminos and top with veggies a la Everyday Paleo.
