Soft Shell Chicken Tacos
Another first for me, trying Soft Shell Chicken Tacos. Delicious taco flavored chicken along with all the flavors of the fillings stuffed into a tortilla! I was pleasantly surprised at how good they were! Kudos to my husband!
Today the grandchildren were here all day. It was time to put the Christmas tree up and they help us every year. While my grandson slept, my granddaughter helped me string on the lights. My husband was going to surprise us and prepare supper while we worked on the tree and what a nice surprise it was….delicious! After supper we all took part in hanging the ornaments on the tree. My 3-year-old grandson squealed with delight when it was his turn to hang one while my granddaughter shouted “That ones mine!” What wonderful memories!
Ingredients – Use your favorite kind of tortilla.
We weren’t crazy about the corn tortilla and will use flour tortillas from now on.
In a non stick skillet, cook the chicken until no pink remains and chicken is done.
My husband did not add any oil to the pan but if you need it you can.
Add 2 Tbl of taco seasoning to the chicken and mix well.
Sauté the sliced onions in about 1 Tbl of butter until translucent.
Sauté the sliced peppers in about 1 Tbl of butter until tender.
Lay a tortilla flat and fill it with all of your favorite ingredients.
Fold the tortilla in half and enjoy!

Another great recipe Diane
Thank you! My husband gets credit for this one!
Some tortillas are full of sodium so I always search for better ones to use because recipes like this one are so darn good!
I didn’t know you could buy low sodium! Thanks for the input!!!
