Shredded Chicken for Enchiladas, Tostadas, Tacos...
45 mins (prep 15, cooking 30)
15 ingredients
10 servings
This is an authentic filling used for Mexican dishes such as: enchiladas, tostadas and tacos. You can easily double the recipe, as it freezes well. I always have some on hand in the freezer. Use this in place of plain shredded chicken; and it will kick an average Mexican recipe up a notch (IMHO). COOK'S NOTES: 1 whole frying chicken, giblets and excess fat removed, can be used instead of boneless chicken breasts.
