We served our margarita chicken in soft taco shells, but it would be equally as delicious in hard shells or on nachos! Mmmmmmm! Use whatever toppings your family likes, but we used shredded cheese and some fresh salsa.
We accompanied our Margarita Chicken with a salad topped with strawberries and a nice balsamic vinaigrette. It was the perfect accompaniment to this dish.
I used the Margarita mix without the tequila already mixed in, but you can use the "leaded" version if you would like! I'm so excited for you to try this!!! Wait till you see how easy it is!!!
(I would like to thank Tracy and Dan for giving me a couple tortillas and the lemon and lime so I didn't have to run to the store with 2 hungry kids!!!! xoxo)
Makes about 6-8 servings
Ingredients: (I used my 3 Quart Slow Cooker for this)
1.5 lbs. boneless skinless chicken breasts (I used tenders since I had them)
1 yellow pepper, sliced into strips
1 onion, sliced into half rings
1 cup Margarita Mix (mine was alcohol free, but please feel free to use the one with tequila in it!)
1 Tbsp. garlic powder
1/2 tsp. cumin
1/2 tsp. salt
Place the chicken in the bottom of your crock.
Add in the yellow peppers and onions.
In a bowl (or measuring glass) mix together the margarita mix, garlic powder, cumin and salt.
Pour it over the chicken, onions and peppers.
Cook on LOW for 6-7 hours, or on HIGH for 3-3.5 hours.
Take the chicken out and shred it.
Place the chicken back in the juices and mix.
Serve in taco shells or on nachos!
