I've got to be honest, I almost didn't post this recipe because it is soooo easy to make. I've actually been really insecure to post recipes in general because I'm not an experienced cook and I love to make really simple but healthy food! I try not to add any "fluff" to my food and if a yummy meal looks complicated in a cook book, I simply won't make it!
As I was thinking about it though, I figured that if I was this way, there's got to be other women out there that appreciate simple recipes too!! So, here is my SUPER EASY shredded Mexican chicken recipe! Let me just tell you, once you make it and see how easy it is, you will definitely want to add this to your weekly rotation!
The chicken comes out so moist and flavorful and you can seriously add it to so many things to complete a meal! I added it to black beans and mixed greens earlier this week to make a taco salad! You can add this chicken to enchiladas, tacos, burrito bowls, quesadillas, veggies, etc! It's goes with pretty much everything!
I hope you love it as much as I do and please leave me a comment if you would like to see more healthy (but ridiculously easy) recipes!
