Slow Cooker Jerked Chicken Tacos

The 

Skinny Tastes inspired this healthy taco for Taco Tueaday. And they make great leftovers as a taco salad on Wednesday. I used TJs mango salsa but any brand of mango salsa will work.

Ingredients:

  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 TBSP jerk seasoning
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 1/2 lb boneless chicken thighs
  • 1/2 c fresh orange juice
  • 1/4 c lime juice
  • 1/4 c cilantro
  • 1 large mango diced
  • 1 pint of mango salsa
  • 1/2 medium avocado, sliced
  • 2 heads romaine lettuce, chopped
  • 1/2 c shredded carrot
  • 2 TBSP lime juice
  • 1 tsp jalapeno vinegar, from canned jalapeños
  • 2 tsp canola oil
  • 12 corn tortillas

Season chicken with salt, pepper and jerk seasoning. Combine chicken, lime juice, orange juice and cilantro in a slow cooker. Cook on high for 2 hours. Shred and retune to liquid, keep warm.

Combine mango, lettuce, lime juice, jalapeno and oil in a large bowl, toss until well combined. Top with avocado.

Heat tortillas in a skillet. Spoon in 1/3 c chicken, top with salsa and serve with salad.

Serves 6.
