Now, I said Shredded Chicken Tostadas, but now, you can make shredded chicken tacos or shredded chicken taco salad. Whatever your family prefers.

My family loves tostada/taco night, usually my son thinks that it should always be on Tuesday’s because of The Lego Movie. But tostada/taco night is an easy dinner so we always have it on our busiest night of the week.

Now, I make this extra easy on myself and I put boneless, skinless, chicken breast, usually about 3 lbs of it, in the crock pot for about 6 hours. Then I put it in a large mixing bowl and use hand hand mixer to shred it. I used to use two forks until my husband saw a video of someone shredding chicken with a mixer and after we tried it we will NEVER go back to using two forks. It’s seriously a cinch and only takes about 2 minutes instead of 15.

After the chicken is shredded, throw it all in a large skillet…

sprinkle liberally with taco seasoning, you can use the prepackaged kind or make your own, I usually keep a big container of the premade kind on hand.
