If your fam­ily doesn’t al­ready have a taco day then you’ll definitely want to start the tra­di­tion with this juicy and ten­der chicken dish.

Ready in

Prep time: 10 min­utes Cook time: 6 hours


• 6 bone­less, skin­less chicken thighs

• 1 ½ cups pre­pared pico de gallo or salsa

• ¼ cup fresh lime juice

• 2 tsp cumin seeds, lightly toasted

• ¼ cup chopped fresh cilantro

• 12 taco shells


1. Place the chicken, pico de gallo or salsa, lime juice and cumin seeds in a slow cooker and stir to com­bine. Cover and cook on low for 6 hours.

2. Al­low to cool a bit. Scoop the chicken out with a big slot­ted spoon and place it in a large bowl. Use two forks to pull the meat apart. The chicken will shred eas­ily. Stir in some cook­ing juices from the pot and add the cilantro.

3. Place the shred­ded chicken, your taco shells and de­sired fix­ings on the ta­ble and let ev­ery­one put to­gether their own per­fect taco.
