    Shjya Instance's Note:

    Great addition to practically any Latin American dish- from taquitos to taco salad! You can also use cilantro here, though I prefer parsley.

    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Boil chicken breast, 1/2 of the onion sliced, and chiles until chicken is cooked through.
    2. 2
      Shred the chicken into bite size or smaller pieces.
    3. 3
      Fry in a skillet the other half of the onion, diced, the garlic, and the parsley leaves for 2-3 minutes, or until onions are soft.
    4. 4
      (I also like to add the boiled chile here to add a little kick.)
    5. 5
      Serve as meat for empanadas, taquitos, burritos, atop a taco salad, or use your imagination!

      Wonderful! I loved the addition of the onions and garlic. I cooked my chicken breasts in the crock pot all day in garlic chicken broth with the onon and peppers. It made for very easy shredding. I made these into tostadas for dinner. Will be making again soon. Thanks so much for posting!
