Recipe: Chicken Soft Tacos

This recipe was submitted by “Mama S” from Orinda, CA.   Sounds yummy and beats Taco Bell any day of the week!  I also like it since you can deviate and use whatever your kids like or what you have on hand in your fridge or pantry.    Thank you Mama S!!!!!!!!!   Keep the ideas coming!   🙂

Chicken Soft Tacos


  • 1 lb chicken breast, sliced up thinly (or ground beef or ground chicken)
  • tortillas, corn or flour
  • taco seasoning

Fillings:   any or all of the following

  • tomatoes, diced
  • lettuce, shredded
  • cheddar cheese, shredded
  • avocado, diced
  • cilantro, chopped
  • sour cream
  • pickled jalapeno peppers
  • black beans, refried beans


Cook the chicken for about 5 mins until most of it is cooked. Drain the fat if needed. To the pan, add about 3 TBSP of taco seasoning with 3 TBSP of water. Put back on heat and cook for another 5 mins.

If tortillas are very fresh, no need to heat them up. If not so fresh, microwave 20 sec for each tortilla. Add fillings as needed.

Prep time – 20 minutes
Cook time – 15 minutes
