Chicken Tacos (Cafe Rio Shredded Chicken Copycat Recipe)

I will admit it, I’m a Cafe Rio/Costa Vida addict.  It’s rare that I go more than a week without eating at one of the two. All their entrees are so full of exciting flavors that they keep me coming back for more. Since I eat there so frequently I thought maybe it’s time to create another copycat recipe.

Slow Cooker Chicken Tikka Masala

Chicken Tikka Masala doesn’t get any easier than this!  I created this recipe because so often people skip Chicken Tikka Masala in their dinner rotation recipes because it takes so much time and effort to prepare.  In my opinion this cooking method tastes just as good, if not better, than any of those tediously time consuming recipes.  The better comes because of the unbelievably te
