Flavorful Chicken for Empanadas, Tacos, Etc...

Flavorful Chicken for Empanadas, Tacos, Etc... created by mydesigirl

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

  • Boil chicken breast, 1/2 of the onion sliced, and chiles until chicken is cooked through.
  • Shred the chicken into bite size or smaller pieces.
  • 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.
  • (I also like to add the boiled chile here to add a little kick.)
  • 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!
