Healthy Chicken Tacos - Gluten Free - Easy

These chicken tacos are one of my family's favorite dishes for Taco Tuesday.  It is an easy recipe and only takes about 30 minutes - however the longer it cooks the more flavorful it gets.   With that said, it is a great meal to make in large batches for a group or to freeze.  Remember, like all my recipes, these amounts are approximate - the beauty of cooking!!

2 T olive oil

1 small onion - chopped
1 small red pepper - cut into strips
1 1/2 - 2 lbs chicken - thighs, breasts whatever
2 T taco seasoning
taco shells or tortillas
Toppings: avocado, tomato, cheese

1) Heat the oil in a large dutch oven
2) Add the onion and pepper and cook till soft
3) Add the chicken and cover with water and add taco seasoning
4) Cover and let cook until chicken is cooked through - about 20 minutes
5) Remove from heat and using two forks shred the chicken
6) Continue cooking on low until ready to serve

Heat the tortillas or shells, top with chicken mixture and add desired toppings - enjoy!
