Today’s Menu: Slow Cooker Honey Chipotle Chicken Tacos

For Breakfast this morning I heated up the remainder of the Potato and Ham Skillet along with the morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. After Breakfast i went to the local Kroger here up the road. Wanted to go early before the rain returned. I didn’t need much but as always I picked up a few extra items. Back home finished up some laundry for Mom. Then later I took everything out of the fridge and gave it a good cleaning. My how time flies when you’re having fun! For Dinner tonight a new Chicken Dish. I prepared Slow Cooker Honey Chipotle Chicken Tacos.

 
The minute I saw this recipe I knew I had to try it! I seen it on Facebook and after checking on the net I found slow-cooker-honey-chipotle-chicken-tacos-001various sites that had it, all basically the same. I’m using the one from the with salt and wit website (http://withsaltandwit.com/). A very good website with a load of great recipes, check it out! To make the dish I’ll need the following; For the Chicken: – 2 pounds skinless and boneless chicken breasts, ⅓ cup honey. For the Honey Chipotle Marinade: – 1½ teaspoons chili powder, 2 teaspoons chipotle in adobo sauce (or ground chipotle powder if gluten-free), 1 tablespoon ground cumin, 1½ teaspoons paprika, 1½ teaspoon garlic salt, 1 teaspoon onion powder, heaping ½ teaspoon ground coriander, and ½ teaspoon pepper. Just by the list of seasonings, you can tell that the Chicken will be packed with flavor!

 
I had the Chicken Breasts in the freezer so I sat them in the fridge and let them thaw overnight. To prepare the dish; slow-cooker-honey-chipotle-chicken-tacos-003Got the Slow Cooker out and lined it with a Slow Cooker Liner, then sprayed it with Pam Cooking Spray. Placed the chicken in the bottom of the Slow Cooker. Then mixed together the Chicken Rub Ingredients. Sprinkled the Rub evenly over the Chicken. Next take the Honey and pour over top the Chicken. Cover and cook on high for 3 – 3½ hours or low for 5-6 hours or until meat is cooked through and easily falls apart. I cooked mine on high for 4 hours. Once the Chicken was cooked, remove it from the slow cooker and shred it with two forks. Then return the shredded chicken back to the slow cooker to absorb the cooking liquid. Taste and seasoned it with salt and pepper.

 
To serve them; I used Old El Paso Flour Tortillas. I wrapped the Tortillas in a paper towel and heated them up in theslow-cooker-honey-chipotle-chicken-tacos-005 microwave, 30 seconds. In the center of each Tortilla, added the Chicken mixture and topped with the other toppings. Toppings I used; Red Cabbage, Kraft 2% Shredded Colby/Jack Cheese, sliced Black Olives, and a light touch of Ortega Smokey Chipotle Taco Sauce. And these Soft Tacos are ready to serve! One huge problem I came across with this recipe, when you shred the Chicken, trying not to eat it as you shred it! The Chicken is incredible, just bursting with flavor! You have all the Spices, with heat from the Chipotle, and then the Honey giving it a sweet taste. Truly a “Keeper Recipe”. So if you love Chicken and Soft Tacos, you have to try this one! For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding. The original recipe and web link is below.
