Sometimes that is all the time we have together before one of us, heads off to soccer or lacrosse practice.
CHICKEN TACO RECIPE
Our family loves eating our shredded chicken taco recipe on Taco Tuesday. I usually can throw them together and have all the ingredients on hand. This is also an easy gluten free dinner recipe to make for the family because we are now a household that has to accommodate a child with Celiac Disease.
INSTANT POT CHICKEN TACOS
I love making meals that can easily be adapted so that I can feed kids that have different dietary needs. This shredded chicken is also super versatile in the way that you can serve it up. For example, we usually serve it with corn or flour tortillas and top it with our favorite taco toppings. But…you could also serve this chicken on the top of a delicious salad, or over some tortilla chips! You could also roll them up and turn them into some chicken wraps, quesadillas, or burritos!
