2teaspoonschicken seasoning(or use a combination of salt, paprika, onion powder, garlic powder, and dried oregano)
1cupBBQ saucedivided (see note for skipping BBQ sauce)
Optional: sliced jalapeño(skip for non-spicy chicken)
For the tacos:
Salsa toppings, such as shredded cabbage, salsa, or coleslaw
Garnishes fresh lime, fresh cilantro, sliced jalapeños, sliced radishes, sour cream or lime crema (see notes)
Season the chicken breasts with chicken seasoning on all sides. Transfer the seasoned chicken to your sous vide bag, along with the sliced onion, ½ cup BBQ sauce (save the rest for later!), and sliced jalapeño, if using. Seal the bags with a vacuum sealer or by using the water displacement method. Make sure the bags are sealed well!
Fill your large pot with hot water. Add the sealed bag to the pot. Attach the sous vide cooker to the pot and set it to 150 degrees Fahrenheit. Cook for 1.5 - 2 hours, or until the chicken is fully cooked.
Carefully remove the sous vide bag from the pot (it's hot!!) and transfer the contents of the bag to a large heat-safe bowl (transfer the juices too, if you want saucier tacos!). Use two forks to shred the chicken and mix it with the cooked onions, and add more BBQ sauce, to taste.
Assemble your tacos: Toast or microwave your tortillas. Add your BBQ shredded chicken on top of the tortillas, topped with your favorite taco toppings. Enjoy your tacos and minimal cleanup!
If you don't want BBQ chicken tacos, feel free to skip the BBQ sauce and simply season your chicken with taco seasoning or chicken seasoning.
I find that the onion gives the sauce a nice flavor, but feel free to skip them if you don't want cooked onions in your tacos.
Just a few jalapeño slices infuse the BBQ sauce with a spicy flavor, so go easy on them! However, the sous vide jalapeños are sooo tasty when you get a bite of them!
The nutrition facts are estimated for the BBQ chicken only, and don't include tortillas or any other taco toppings. They assume 1 whole cup of BBQ sauce, when in reality you might use less if you don't sop up all the sauce.
