Slow Cooker Chicken Pibil Tacos

In This Article

Active time: 25 minutes Total time: 6 1/2 hours

Chicken pibil is a classic Yucatecan dish made with citrus juice, onion, tomato and a vibrant red paste of annatto seeds and mixed spices called achiote. The dish is tangy, sweet and full of warm spices. Traditionally, the chicken is marinated and then steamed in banana leaves for super-juicy, tender meat. Here, we are making a streamlined version of the Mexican classic using lower-fat boneless, skinless chicken breasts and a hands-off slow cooker.

The slow cooker keeps all of the moisture locked inside, so the chicken breasts shred easily and melt into the flavorful sauce. Don’t be intimidated by this recipe — it’s much easier than it sounds! Dump everything in your slow cooker before you leave for work, then come home to tender, fragrant chicken that is ready to shred and pile onto warm tortillas. The chicken also holds well on “warm” in your slow cooker, if it finishes before your work day ends.
