I have been trying to create a good recipe for shredded chicken for enchiladas and burritos and I finally came up with this!! It was a hit for dinner at my house so try it for yourself!

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Slice chicken into strips and add to a pot of boiling water.
  2. Chop the onion and with a pastry brush, lightly coat olive oil all over them.
  3. Once the chicken is cooked (usually floats to the top), shred the chicken by chopping it with a knife or shredding it with your hands. Boiled chicken falls apart easily if you don't mind getting your hands dirty.
  4. Add the chicken into a mixing bowl with them onions, add the 2 tablespoons of olive oil, taco seasonings,salt, and sour cream and mix well.
  5. Next add the hot sauce to the chicken. I use about a teaspoon just to add a little kick to it.
  6. Add to your favorite dish such as enchiladas, burritos, or quesedillas and enjoy!
