Chicken Sweet Potato Tacos

Happy Friday everyone!! What’s up for the weekend? Anything fun going on??  This week flew by!  Let’s celebrate with some Tacos! Taco Friday!  Do you guys do anything like that? Taco Friday? Pizza Friday? I usually adhere to the “Get Me Outta the Freaking House Friday.”  I don’t care where, I just want to get OUT!

Ok so we’re not really reinventing the wheel here but I figured it might help give you a fun dinner idea if you’re short on ideas these days.  If you didn’t see my post on Wednesday, the sweet potatoes I used were purple sweet potatoes.  They had great color and tasted like sweet potatoes but they were definitely dryer.  They would work great for fries because they crisp up really nicely.

These tacos were super simple, all you need is a few chicken breasts, a sweet potato, tortillas and some good salsa.  We used this awesome mango salsa from The Brooklyn Salsa Company.

Ok, here’s all you have to do:

• Put some chicken breasts in the slow cooker and cover with some salsa.  Cook on low for 6-8 hours or high for 3-4. When its done shred with two forks and toss with a little extra fresh salsa. Season with salt & pepper.

•  Cut & peel the sweet potatoes and toss with olive oil, salt, pepper, garlic powder & chili powder.  Roast at 400 F for 20-25 minutes until tender.

•  Assemble tacos with shredded chicken, roasted potatoes, salsa & any other toppings you like (guacamole, sour cream, cheese).

    Our tradition is Pizza Fridays, but we’ve changed it to Caesar Salad to make it a bit healthier. 🙂 Maybe we should be having Taco Fridays, because these look so good!
