Dorm Room Dinner: Pulled Chicken Tacos

Print Friendly and PDF
These tacos come together in a flash, and don't think just because the chicken is pulled that they are hard to make.  In fact, I like to cut the chicken breasts into about 3 pieces.  Season them with taco seasoning, and then put them into the oven at 400 degrees in a glass baking dish.  After about 25 minutes, the chicken is done and I can start pulling it!

In that time, the cheese gets grated, salsa gets plated (like how that rhymed?) and I also made guacamole.  I'm thinking that I will post a recipe for that before long because John keeps reminding me how it is so good (and let me let you in on a little secret, so easy). 

Also this week, I am participating in Saucy Mama's Fabulous with 5 challenge.  With only 5 ingredients, I'm loving that we'll have a lot of dorm room dinners!  I'm featuring a few recipes this week and then, on Friday, I will also be giving away one of their condiment kits!  Let me tell you that this kit is incredible, and you won't want to miss out on the giveaway!  One of my favorite bloggers, and blog, Snappy Gourmet is also participating so check her blog often to find out when to win!
Pulled Chicken Tacos
Serves:  4
3 chicken breasts
4 tablespoons taco seasoning
1 cup salsa
1 cup grated cheddar cheese
1 cup guacamole
8 taco shells

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.  Cut the chicken into smaller pieces (either halved or in thirds).  Season with 3 tablespoons of taco seasoning.  Bake for 25 minutes.  Then, using two forks, shred the chicken and combine with remaining tablespoon of taco seasoning.  Serve pulled chicken in shells and top with salsa, cheese, and guacamole!

Until the next time my oven is on...
