Easy Shredded Chicken Tacos
I knew it was a great combo before I started, but the end result literally blew my mind.
The wonton wrapper really gives it a whole new texture that you don't get from a taco shell, and it bumped up the flavor for sure.
Then pair with your favorite BBQ sauce and you have one outstanding simple and quick weeknight dinner.
You could even dip these shredded chicken tacos into ranch, sour cream, or eat alone.
How Do You Make Moist Shredded Chicken
For me personally, I do of two options. I either use my Instant Pot to cook frozen chicken that I forgot to set out the night before. Or I boil my chicken on the stove top. Both ways really help to keep the moisture in the kitchen so you have a moist and flavorful chicken that you can then season and dress as you prefer.
Because the Instant Pot seals up and builds high pressure, it really pushes moisture into the chicken leaving it nice and juicy. Then with boiling it is in water, so it doesn't run the risk of drying out as easily.
Can You Shred Chicken In A Blender
If you want to shred chicken fast use a blender or even a stand mixer if you want to skip using two forks to pull it apart.
Toss in the blender and pulse for just a couple of seconds and you have shredded chicken.
Don't go overboard or you will end with mush.
For a stand mixer just toss the chicken in, put on the paddle attachment and turn on low.
This is my go-to method, simple and easy.
I hope you all enjoy this recipe as much as our family. A simple and easy weeknight meal that is kid-approved.
