Updated Chicken Tacos

Bimmer Man likes hard shell tacos.
The Bimmer Dog. Yep, I got him to do that whilst I cook. How good of a dog trainer am I?
Eh, I forgot to photography all the ingredients, but that's only because I only thought of blogging after I had chopped the onion. You'll need: 1/2 lb chicken, 1 small onion, salt & pepper, chili powder, cumin, etc... the usual taco spices.
Eh, I garbage bowled it Rachael Ray. I'm not proud, but with a canine looking on, I didn't want any oniony poo in the yard.
And so this is what I give in the kitchen if Bimmer Dog is good and lies down for me. Oh yeah, and stays in one spot so I don't trip over him! Newman's Own is all organic too. Bimmer Dog picked those out on his own at Petco. He was called Geriatric.
Normally he looks something like this around food. But he's still staying!
Douse your chicken with a good amount of spice - I happened to use Emeril's. You'll see more when we shred the chicken and simmer it for 10 minutes.
Saute your chicken until mostly done through - 10 - 12 minutes. Make sure there's great coloring so start your pan at a very high heat to sear the meat.
Yes, I teach the dog well. Drop, stay for a treat! Good doggie... Stay.... Stay....
Aww... the Bimmer Dog... He's so old and gray. He's a geriatric dog.
Finally. Chicken is mostly done. Put it on a plastic something or other to wash - because it's not fully cooked through yet.
Mmm... try not to eat yet. Also, notice how the onions have not been cooked yet.
Shred.
Shred well.
Mmmm... tacos.... kinda looks like pulled pork too.
Saute the onions for about 4 minutes in the same pan. You want the lovely color and also the fat. Mmm..
Keep the doggie at a stay so you don't accidentally step on him. Can you believe that's he's been in the same position this whole time? Yep, I'm good... really, really good...
And then slide the chicken back into the pan with the onions.
Add 1 tsp. of the following: chili powder, cumin, paprika
Add 1/2 tsp. of the following: garlic powder (yes, the powder not the salt), oregano, coriander

Add 1/2 cup chicken broth and 1/2 cup tomato sauce.
Then simmer for 10 minutes.
Chop your lettuce into thin strips like above and get out your cheese.
Then put your tacos together! I don't use salsa for this recipe - there's just enough crunch with the lettuce and spice with the sauce with the chicken that all you need is cheese!
Enjoy!
