Shelly’s Chicken Tacos


This recipe is from my mom, Shelly! I’ve always appreciated her cooking but now that I’m trying to learn my way around the kitchen, I appreciate her hard work even more!

This is a fairly straightforward and easy recipe. It can even be transformed into a crockpot meal if you don’t have time for the stove after a long day.

When my mom makes these she sometimes cooks the chicken the night before. She rinses and boils the chicken for 35-45 minutes.

If you don’t like corn from a can, try making corn on the cob then scrape the kernels off. My husband isn’t a fan of corn and even he agreed this way was better.

Serve in a tortilla or tostada, with rice and beans on the side!
