DIRECTIONS

  • Heat 1 Tbs olive oil in a sauté pan on medium heat. Add the onion and jalapeno if using and cook until starting to soften (4-5mins).
  • Add the garlic and the dried seasonings. Cook 1 more minute.
  • Add the tomato and beer and lay the chicken breasts on top of everything. Cover with a lid and cook for 7 minutes.
  • Uncover and flip the chicken breasts. Cook for 7 more minutes. Remove from heat, uncover and let the chicken breasts cool enough to handle.
  • Shred the chicken with your fingers and add back to the juices in the pan.
  • Stir it all up so that the chicken soaks up the liquid.
  • You can heat it back up if you’re using for tacos or leave it cool if you’re stuffing enchiladas or tamales.
