Pulled Chicken Tacos Recipe

Tired of eating plain old chicken breasts day in, day out? We feel your pain. That’s why we made juicy pulled chicken thighs smothered in our delicious Spanish Tomato and Chorizo Protein Seasoning served with tangy pickled red onions.

You’d never guess this dish was healthy and super easy to make too!


 For the pulled chicken:



To make the pulled chicken:

#1 In a bowl, combine the olive oil and half of the protein seasoning, then rub over the chicken thighs. If you have time, leave to marinate for 1 hour, or longer for extra flavour

#2 Preheat oven to 180°C/160°C for fan-assisted

#3 Next, in a jug, add the remaining protein seasoning to 100ml of boiling water and stir well

#4 Add the chicken to a roasting tray that fits the chicken snugly and then pour the seasoning and water, then cover with foil and bake for 1 hour and 15 minutes, removing the foil for the final 15 minutes

#5 Once baked, use a slotted spoon to transfer the chicken to a bowl and shred using two forks, then serve on a whole wheat tortilla with pickled red onions and squeeze fresh lime juice


To make the pickled red onions:

#1 Combine the vinegar, salt and sugar to a jar or bowl and stir until dissolved. Add pepper and sliced onion and allow to stand for at least 1 hour
