We use this as the base protein for walking tacos or burrito bowls. I like to season the chicken the night before to enhance the flavors.
3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
2 Tbsp. olive oil
1 tsp. chipotle chili powder
1/2 tsp. chili powder
1/2 tsp. ground cumin
1/2 tsp. smoked paprika
1/2 tsp. onion powder
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. ground black pepper
1 Tbsp. freshly-squeezed lime juice
1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and spray with non-stick cooking spray.
2. Mix seasoning together in a small bowl. Drizzle olive oil on chicken breasts, then sprinkle seasoning mix on both sides.
2. Place chicken breasts on a baking sheet. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, or until chicken is done. Use two forks to shred chicken.
Apron Strings Tips: I like to use the chicken breast tenderloins because more of the chicken is covered with seasoning and the cooking time is shortened. I often double the recipe and freeze half to use in chicken tortilla soup.
