This recipe can be served several ways. It can be used as taco meat if shredded, or it can be served alone with refried beans, guacamole (guacamole recipe), or veggies. Put it in a tortilla with all the fillings for a burrito. It’s a tasty, all-purpose, and healthy way to have chicken.  For Whole30, put it in a romaine leaf with guacamole and olives.
