    Made this hundreds of times! Try boiling the chicken with a little vinegar, the chicken is soft and very easy to shred. We like the shredded chicken,easier to eat and goes a little further - 4/4/09

    Sounds wonderful and since I can't have much salt I will use El paso 40 percent less sodium taco seasoning in this. - 4/4/09

    Great, to help cut down on the sodium try adding cumin, garlic, chili powder to the chicken and fresh salsa instead of taco seasoning pkg. - 6/28/09

    I absolutely love this recipe--there couldn't be anything easier. I make several chicken breats worth and add a little more seasoning and eat it for dinner that night and then take it to work all week. And I agree with pp, I eat 2 of these and I'm stuffed. My husband loves it over rice! So good! - 3/7/08
