Even after another BBQ week at work, I still hadn’t gotten my fill. I decided to spend the morning making my own barbeque sauce, that I later used to dress some shredded chicken to make some tacos. Let me tell you, this more than cured my craving – it was awesome! Sweet, spicy, and just plain good. Not to mention, very healthy! I used a few crumbles of blue cheese on top of the tacos, which was delicious, but could easily be left out (these tacos have TONS of flavor). To make this recipe even faster (and to not unnecessarily heat up the oven or the grill on a hot weekend) buy a rotisserie chicken at the store to shred. Also, in a pinch, you could use your favorite bottled BBQ sauce for a similar effect, though there’s really no reason to not make your own. The ingredient list looks long, but it all goes into one pot together – it’s easy and so SO good.
Try this recipe with my homemade tortillas. And if you’re wanting to make your own chicken to shred, just roast some chicken breasts (skin side up) in a 350 degree oven (generously seasoned with salt and pepper) in the oven for about 25-30 minutes.
