Favorite Friday Recipe: Crockpot shredded chicken
I'd like to talk to you today about two different garage sales of which I am a huge fan. One is the Citywide Garage Sale where vendors from all over the state (and sometimes out of state) come and sell their vintage/antique goods. Stalls range from experienced antique dealers to little old ladies who are just trying to get rid of some stuff in their house. Needless to say this is one of my favorite events and many of my finds come from there--including these colorful Thermo-bowls with wicked little feet. They keep your food both hot and cold, depending on what you need. And have I mentioned how cute their little feet are?
The next garage sale that holds equal space in my heart is the semi annual Le Garage sale. Twice a year, all the local boutiques in town get together at the Palmer Events Center and hold a mega sale. There are usually lots of deals to be had and they've slowly expanded it to housewares as well as items for the men in your life, kids, and pets. It is this weekend and it's time to get my game face on!
Anyways, back to the post at hand. Today I'll be sharing a recipe that I got from the gals at fashionism. It's a very simple crockpot recipe with just three ingredients. Then you get to put together all the fixin's you like to have in your tacos and you're ready for a party!
Crockpot shredded chicken (for tacos)
1 package of chicken
(you can use a whole cut up chicken, breasts, thighs, etc.)
1 package of taco seasoning
(I used chicken fajita seasoning but any would work)
1 can of chicken broth
Mix chicken broth and taco seasoning in crockpot
Put in chicken
Set on low for 8 hours or high for 4 hours
Shred chicken with a fork (remember to pour some of the broth on to keep it nice and juicy) and serve with other taco sides
We decided on homemade style tortillas, pico de gallo, cheese, guacamole, sour cream and tomatoes for our chicken taco night. Here are the Thermo-bowls and Fiesta ware in action!
And another shot, with a better view of the cute little feet on the Thermo-bowls!
Have a great weekend!
