Dr Pepper Chicken

chicken on tortilla with pico de gallo


I based this chicken off the “sweet Pork” from Cafe Rio and that I had Dr.Pepper in my Fridge I didn’t want my kids drinking.



It turned out SOO good. and So easy. Kids LOVED it. of course they did…its sweet. I like to eat this classic taco style- corn tortilla, pico, guacamole and sour cream.

Nate loves it burrito style. filled with corn, rice, lettuce
