Crockpot Salsa Pheasant Tacos

Crockpot Salsa Pheasant Tacos are one of the easiest ways to cook upland game there is!

When I was back in college this was a staple meal for me. There was nothing better, after a long day of soccer and classes, then coming home to a meal ready to go! I would throw a couple chicken breasts in the crockpot before morning workouts and it would be shreddable delicious taco meat for dinner.

This is a great recipe for any upland bird. This is also a great recipe for the often hated, very tendony, game bird legs. It cooks for so long, engulfed in salsa-y moisture, that the meat falls off the bone! You just have to pull out the bones and tendons and you’re ready for a delicious dinner.

With fall semester’s getting ready to ramp up again keep this recipe on hand! Also, if you are a poor college kid with no access to wild game, just use any chicken meat and you’ll be golden. Let me know in the comments how it goes and ENJOY!!
