Chicken Tacos to Die For

Chicken Tacos To Die For
Man, I impressed myself with this one. This is my favorite kind of meal, few ingredients, all healthy ingredients, fast and tastes unbelievable! This meal is my favorite meal to throw together in the morning and come home to in the evening. It’s gluten free and can be grain free as long as you don’t use corn tortillas.  For a great corn tortilla replacement, try these wraps from My Heart Beets
Chicken Tacos to Die For


  • 2 lbs chicken breast, bone in or bone out, I actually used some of each
  • 3 chipotle chili peppers in adobo sauce (if you want more of a punch, add more chilies)
  • 1 large onion sliced
  • 2 cups salsa or a 15 oz can of chopped stewed tomatoes
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 2 cinnamon sticks
  • Salt to taste
  • Taco shells (omit for a GAPS legal meal)


  1. In a crockpot, place chicken breasts (no need to defrost if frozen). Pour in the tomatoes. Mix in the chipotle chilies and and adobo sauce, garlic and cinnamon sticks. Top with the slices of onion. I give it a bit of a stir to make sure the chicken is coated. Cook on high for about 4 hours (low for 8). You'll want the meat to be tender enough to just fall off the bone.
  2. Remove the chicken pieces, chipotle peppers and cinnamon sticks. Shred the chicken, I do this using two forks. Throw out the peppers and cinnamon (you can chop the peppers up and leave them in the mix, but it will be hotter). Put the chicken back in the crockpot with all the yummy juices and mix thoroughly.
  3. This tastes great on tacos or as a taco salad. Add your favorite taco toppings like cheese, sour cream, more salsa and salad.
