This is one of my go-to recipes when I can’t think of what to make for guests. Or when I have shredded chicken in the freezer from when I needed the bones for broth.
I usually make the recipe from a whole chicken, but I’m sure chicken breasts would work just as well.
- 1 1/2 Tbsp. smoked paprika
- 1 tsp. cumin
- pinch of red pepper or cayenne
- 3 garlic cloves, minced
- salt and pepper to taste
- 3 Tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
- 1 lemon or lime, juiced
Mix ingredients and stir with:
- 1 lb. chicken, cooked and shredded
Allow to marinate several hours. Sear in a frying pan before serving. Great for chicken tacos or as a salad topper.
