This recipe is a easy, yet delicious dish. It as simple as using your crock-pot to cook the chicken and the oven cooking the taco shells. There is nothing like great, tasty slow-cooked chicken inside a crispy hard shell you cooked. Now there are two methods for cooking the shells. You can use the "Quick Taco Shell Maker" as seen on TV (all of that stuff works, right?) or you can simply use the racks in your oven. This recipe will account for 2 tacos, even though I made more. The measurements are approximate,so if you want to add more spices you can! Here is what I did:
2 boneless chicken thighs
2 tsp kosher salt
1 tsp black pepper
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp smoked paprika
2 corn tortillas
Take chicken thighs and remove skin. Place in crock-pot and add spices. Add water to bottom of crock-pot to add moisture, just enough to cover the bottom. Cover and cook on high for about 2 hours.
When chicken is ready, take the corn tortillas and spray both sides with cooking spray and cook in a 400 degree oven on your taco maker or simply hanging on your rack face down for 8-10 minutes or until it is brown and crispy.
Shred chicken and place in shells, add toppings if desired. You can put cheddar cheese, cilantro, onions, etc. Whatever floats your taco boat.
These were really good!
