"Bone and skin are left on the chicken breasts so they're extra flavorful as they simmer in tomato sauce and a blend of savory seasonings." — Goya

These had to be the BEST chicken tacos I've ever had. The only thing I did different was to use boneless breasts, because it's what I had on hand. The flavor blend in these were spot on, with just the perfect little kick. My family absolutely loved them. I will never make another chicken taco recipe again!
As is, this was a three, at best ... it just tasted like tomato sauce on chicken! But, after tasting, I added some additional spices (more ancho, garlic powder, onion powder, more orgegano, tumeric) as well as some salsa verde, and it came together nicely ... it was a five-star, then, and I'll definitely make again, but definitely check the seasonings after the chicken has cooked in the sauce for about 10 minutes ... I cannot imagine anyone not wanting to do some major tweaking on this basic recipe!
OH SO GOOD!!! I made these just as written, except I didn't have ancho chili powder. I used regular chili powder instead. I also went a easy on the cumin. I put in about 1/2 - 3/4tsp. AND, you really don't need to use goya brand products... I used mostly store brand. Came out great!
This was absolutely outstanding! Moist, flavorful delicious shredded chicken for soft tacos. I adapted this recipe for the slow cooker by placing 1 1/2 lb boneless frozen breasts in the slow cooker with cumin, adobo, taco seasing and a cup of Goya tomato/chicken boullion, cooked seven hours, removed the chicken and drained the juices through a seive, then added the shredded chicken, recipe ingredients, and some strained broth back in the slow cooker. I added a can of chopped green chilis too. A definite do-over! Thanks, Goya.
soooo good, even w/ out using all the Goya brands. Although, I thought the Goya Adobo was a key ingriedient.
really good!! i usually buy those rotissere chickens and take the chicken off the bone and freeze it...so i used that and it saved me A LOT of time! I used half the amount of chili powder and it was really spicy...so just be careful with that. I warmed the tortillas on the stove with a little butter and put everything on it lettuce, tomatoes, avocado, sour cream and cilantro and my husband loved it!!! except for it being a little spicy, but i love spicy!!
Oh Yes. Better than authentic shredded beef tacos and way better than any other chicken taco I have ever tasted. I went under on all spice measurements as my family is sensitive to spicy food. Added more as needed. The COMBO of spices is wonderful. My family and I are so grateful this recipe was shared online. It tastes so good and is healthy! Can't beat THAT.
outstanding recipe. I used boneless breasts and it worked just fine. very authentic tasting
