This shredded chicken and sauce is FAB-U-LOUS. And needs to becoming a regular part of your rotation!
It’s simple when added to tortillas to make soft tacos, but would be fabulous in enchiladas, crunchy tacos, tostada shells, over rice, or just by itself!
Yum-i-licious and I hope you enjoy it as much as we did! 😉
