Ingredients

  • 8 Boneless skinless chicken thighs
  • 1 cup Jarred salsa (your favorite brand)
  • 2 Tablespoons Lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon Chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon Ground cumin
  • Salt to taste

Instructions

  • Add all ingredients to a slow cooker and cook on high for 2 hours.  If your chicken is frozen, add 30 minutes. When the chicken is cooked through, remove just the chicken onto a cutting board and set aside to cool
  • Pour the juice from the slow cooker into a saucepan and cook over high heat.  Let the sauce boil rapidly for 15 minutes to reduce the liquid.  
  • While the liquid is reducing, cut your chicken thighs into 1 inch dice.  You can also shred the chicken if that's what you prefer.
  • Add the diced chicken to the saucepan with the reduced sauce and remove from the heat.  
  • Taste the chicken taco meat for seasoning and season with salt if needed.  Serve with your favorite low carb tortillas and taco toppings. (nutrition is for taco meat only)
