For the Sauce:

  • 1/4 cup low sodium soy sauce
  • 3 Tablespoons honey
  • 2-3 Tablespoons Sriracha chili sauce depending how spicy you want it
  • 1 Tablespoon rice vinegar or apple cider vinegar
  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken thighs can substitute with chicken breasts

For the Nachos:

  • 1 13-ounce bag restaurant-style tortilla chips
  • 1 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese
  • 1 cup shredded Sharp Cheddar cheese
  • 1 red bell pepper cut into small chunks
  • 1-1/2 Tablespoons black olive slices
  • 2-3 Tablespoons sliced pickled jalapenos
  • 1/3 cup fresh cilantro leaves
  • 1 green onion sliced thinly

Optional Toppings:

  • guacamole
  • sour cream
  • Sriracha or Sriracha mayo


To Cook the Chicken:

  1. Lightly grease 4-5 quart slow cooker with non-stick cooking spray. Combine all the ingredients for the sauce into the bottom of the slow cooker. Nestle chicken into the middle of the slow cooker and coat with sauce. Cover with lid and cook on low for 3-4 hours or high for 1-2 hours. Transfer to cutting board and shred with two forks.

To Assemble:

  1. Coat a 9" cast iron skillet with cooking spray (or line a large 9 ½ x 13 baking sheet with foil or parchment paper). Arrange half of the chips onto pan and top with half of the shredded chicken, then half of the bell peppers, olives, and cheeses. Top with another layer of chips and repeat the toppings.
  2. Broil or bake at preheated oven at 400 F until cheese is melted and bubbling, about 5-7 minutes.

  3. Remove pan from oven and top with pickled jalapenos, green onions, and fresh cilantro. Serve with guacamole, sour cream and extra Sriracha sauce, if desired.
