Apple Cider Chicken Tacos

5 Best Choice Frozen Chicken Breasts
¾ cup Best Choice Apple Cider
½ cup Best Choice Chopped Green Chiles
1 tsp cumin
2 cloves garlic, smashed
½ white onion, chopped
Always Save Mexican Style Cheese Topping
Always Save Hard Taco Shells
Always Save Tortilla Chips

Apple Salsa:
2 apples, cored & diced (we used Granny Smith)
½ cup Best Choice Diced Jalapeno Peppers
1 can Best Choice Diced Tomatoes with Green Chilies with Lime & Cilantro
½ red onion, diced
Juice from 2 limes

Spray or line slow cooker. Microwave frozen chicken breasts on plate for 10 minutes. The middle will still be slightly pink, but that’s okay – it will finish cooking in the slow cooker.

Place chicken in the slow cooker along with apple cider, chopped green chilies, cumin, garlic and white onion. Stir gently to coat chicken. Cover slow cooker and cook on low for 5 hours.

As chicken cooks, mix diced apple pieces, jalapeno peppers, can of tomatoes with green chilies, red onion and lime juice together in medium bowl. Stir until well combined. Add salt to taste. Refrigerate until chicken is finished cooking.

Once chicken is complete, shred with a fork. Serve in taco shells topped with cheese and apple salsa. Use the remainder of the salsa for chip dip to complete the meal.
