My New Go-To Meal

If I may whine for a moment ... it is really hard to find things to make for dinner that the whole family will enjoy. What my son will eat, my daughter won't and vice versa. I like more exotic foods while my husband is a meat and potatoes kind of a guy.

And realistically, it is unhealthy to eat macaroni & cheese every night.

Recently my mother-in-law e-mailed me this recipe for an easy shredded chicken taco, and boy it really is easy! The essential thing here is a slow cooker.

Lynne's Easy Shredded Chicken Taco

4 large chicken breasts
1 can Mexican tomatoes with green chilis
1 packet taco seasoning

Spray crock pot with cooking spray. To pot add taco seasoning and canned tomatoes, stir together. Add chicken breasts.

Cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours.

Shred chicken and use in tacos, adding your favorite ingredients (i.e. lettuce, cheese, sour cream, tomatoes, etc.)

My family loves this and we can all make our tacos to our own specifications. I've already made it twice in two weeks and I know this will be the perfect go-to for future meals.

I'm definitely trying that!

After far to many disasters, I swore I would never cook chicken in the crock pot again.

You may just make me rethink that pledge...
