Who doesn’t love carnitas! Tender and crispy and full of flavor. I love this recipe because it super easy and so delicious. Using chicken makes it leaner than pork or beef but equally as flavorful. I used frozen chicken breasts and frozen chicken thighs, seasoned with Taco Tuesday, cooked in the crockpot all day and finished in the oven.
A family favorite to be sure! Great weekday meal!
Serve it up with all the usual taco accompaniments. I made a quick blender salsa using a can of chopped tomatoes, 1 bunch cilantro, 3 jalepenos and 1/2 onion. Blend well, I used a big pinch of Lemon Sea Salt to finish. Yum!
I also made a quick black bean side dish. Recipe inside using Honey Chipotle to season beans. So good!
A bottle of Tecate did this meal justice!
Wine and Spice Makes Everything Nice!
