  • 2 Pounds Chicken breast boneless, skinless
  • 1/3 Cup Chicken broth
  • 2 Tbsp Lime juice Fresh
  • 1 Tbsp Adobo sauce
  • 1 tsp Cumin
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • 1/2 Cup Cilantro chopped
  • 2 Chipotle peppers in adobo sauce
  • 10 6-inch Tortillas flour or corn

Optional Toppings

  • Charred corn
  • Pickled onions
  • Salsa
  • Guacamole
  • Queso Fresco


  • Add the chicken broth, lime juice, adobo sauce, cumin and salt into a small bowl.
  • Chop the cilantro and chipotle peppers, add them to the bowl and mix well.
  • Place the chicken breasts in a single layer in the slow cooker.
  • Pour the sauce over the chicken.
  • Set the cooker to high and cook for 2.5-3 hours, depending on your cooker. You will know the chicken is done when it flakes easily when you insert a fork and twist. If you would rather cook these on low, they will take 4-5 hours.
  • Remove the chicken from the pot and place it in a bowl. Shred the chicken with 2 forks, then pour some of the sauce from the slow cooker over the shredded chicken. You can use as much or as little as you like.
  • Fill your taco with chicken and any optional topping you choose and serve.
