Directions:

Preheat the oven 370 degrees.

1.  Cut the chicken breasts into halves and season them with salt and pepper.  Cook them over medium high heat with a 1 T. of olive oil.  Cook until they turn white and ready to be shredded.

2.  Let the cooked chicken cool and shred them into a bowl.  Return back to the skillet, combine the 1-1/2 T. taco seasoning, salt, ground black pepper, garlic, 1/4 c. water and 1 t. cayenne.  Cook for 5 minutes until everything is well combined and the water has almost evaporated.  Season with salt to taste.
