Spicy Shredded Chicken

This weekend I found myself having to feed some unexpected weekend guests.  Luckily I had a refrigerator full of chicken and a pantry full of seasonings.  A great blog called EZ Primal gave me the inspiration for this recipe.  I just made a couple modifications to accommodate the ingredients I already had.

Spicy Shredded Chicken:

  • 2 Tbsp Coconut Oil
  • 1 package of Chicken Tenderloins
  • 3-4 Tbsp Taco Mix Seasoning
  • 1 Tbsp Ground Cumin
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • ½ cup Chicken Broth (I used the low-sodium kind from Trader Joe’s)

Heat the Coconut Oil over medium heat in a large pan.  While the oil is heating, season your chicken with the taco mix seasoning, cumin, salt, and pepper.  When the oil is hot, cook your chicken for a few minutes on each side or until it is cooked through.  Next add the chicken broth, lower the heat to a simmer, and continue cooking until the broth has cooked off.  This should take about 5 minutes.  Then shred your chicken using two forks and enjoy 🙂
