  • For the chicken:
  • 1 small yellow onion chopped
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 3 garlic cloves crushed
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1-1.5 lbs chicken breasts
  • 2 cups chicken stock
  • 1 can 4 oz. diced green chiles (to heat level of your liking, i like to add in 'hot' ones)
  • 1 can 14.5 oz. crushed tomatoes
  • For the radish slaw:
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
  • 1/4 cup cilantro loosely chopped and stems removed
  • 1 bunch of radishes finely chopped (I use a mandolin)
  • 1 avocado finely sliced
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt


  • Start by cooking the chopped onion in olive oil for 2 minutes in a large dutch oven, then add in the garlic and cumin, paprika, oregano, cayenne and salt, and saute for another 3 minutes.
  • Preheat oven to 275.
  • Add chicken into the dutch oven along with chicken stock, green chiles, and crushed tomatoes, cook for 4 hours, stirring occasionally. Remove from oven and allow to sit for 5 minutes before shredding.
  • To shred the chicken, use a hand mixer, covering the pot with a paper towel to contain the splatter and mix until all the chicken is shredded.
  • To make the radish slaw combine lime juice, vinegar and cilantro in a bowl and stir to combine.
  • Add in the sliced radishes and avocado and sprinkle with salt, then stir to combine.
  • To assemble the tacos, warm tortillas then place two spoonfuls of chicken (I like to use a slotted spoon to drain the liquid from the chicken) in the center of a tortilla and place a spoonful or two of the slaw on top, repeat assembling per taco and enjoy


1 pound of chicken makes roughly 12 tacos with slaw, 1 serving is 3 tacos
