Adjust serving size: 


  • 1 cup dry rice rinsed
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 2 cups broth - any kind
  • 2 lbs boneless skinless chicken breast
  • 16 oz mild salsa verde
  • Taco & Side Ingredients
  • 1 head bibb or butter lettuce
  • gluten free tortillas - optional
  • 1 avocado - ripe but firm sliced
  • 1 roma tomato diced

How to Make:

  1. Warm a large heavy-pot or dutch oven {something with a lid} over medium-high heat. Add the rice, seasonings and chicken broth into the pot and mix thoroughly. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to low and add the chicken breasts and salsa verde. Slow-Cooked Chicken & Rice Verde Tacos
  2. Cover and simmer for 45 minutes until the rice is tender and the chicken shreds easily with a fork.
  3. Remove the chicken with a slotted spoon and place onto a cutting board. To shred, insert two forks into the edge of the breast and pull in opposite directions to get long, thin shreds. Repeat this process until all of the chicken has been shredded.Slow-Cooked Chicken & Rice Verde Tacos
  4. Prepare your tacos {using lettuce leaves or gluten-free tortillas} by layering the rice, chicken, sliced avocado, and then top with diced tomato.
