1.5 lbs. bone-in chicken breasts
1 tsp. sea salt
1/2 tsp. cracked black pepper
1 cup bone broth
1 bay leaf
2 cloves of garlic

1 cup Otamot Essential Sauce
2 tbsp. olive or avocado oil
1 large onion (sliced)
5–6 sweet mini bell peppers (sliced)
4 tsp. ground cumin
1/2 tsp. turmeric
1 tsp. smoked paprika
1/4 tsp. chili powder
1 cup leftover broth (from the cooked chicken breasts)

Taco shells or tortillas
Freshly chopped cilantro


The Chicken

Place chicken breasts, sea salt, black pepper, bone broth, bay leaf and garlic cloves into a Stockpot and bring to a boil. Cover it and lower the heat to medium, allowing the chicken to cook for 25-30 minutes or until cooked through. Shred the chicken and discard the bones along with the garlic. Transfer the broth into a bowl and set aside for later.  

The Sauce

Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over high heat, add the onions and peppers and sauté until tender. Add the cumin, turmeric, paprika and chili powder and stir to combine.

Add Otamot Essential Sauce and a cup of the leftover broth from the chicken into the pan, stir to combine. Finally, add the shredded chicken to the sauce and toss to combine. Simmer until the sauce thickens (about 5-7 minutes).

Build Your Tacos

Fill your taco shells or lettuce wraps with the chicken mixture and finish it with fresh cilantro, avocado slices and a squeeze of fresh lime juice.
