Chicken breast or chicken thighs to make slow cooker chicken tacos?

I like to use chicken breast as then it is so easy to shred but thighs will also turn so tender.

Does it really get that tender?

YES! I was a little bit sceptical first time I tested the recipe but trust me, the chicken and the tacos will be so tender and juicy.

Any other taco ideas?

There are so many different tacos that you can try, these are some of my favourites:

From fish tacos to roasted rib or mushroom tacos.

Get all the spices and let’s start!
