I’m a day late for Taco Tuesday! Tonight was taco night in my house. Years ago when I was in culinary school I made chicken tacos that were so delicious my Mom still talks about them. I had made them for my whole family and made them several times. Problem is I never wrote down the recipe. I have a habit of doing that. I’ve since learned my lesson and try and jot down the ingredients. So, tonight I made chicken tacos and it was just like ones I made all those years ago. They came out A…MAZING! Completely delicious!!
This recipe is super simple and can be made in less than 30 minutes. Check out the recipe!
Creamy Chicken Tacos
1 lb chicken breasts, diced
1 large red pepper, diced
1 jalapeño, diced (seeds removed)
1 bunch cilantro, stems removed, chopped (reserve 4 T for topping)
1 lime, juiced
1 taco seasoning packet
1/2 T garlic powder
1/2 T onion powder
2 t chili powder
3 T olive oil
1 t salt
1 t pepper
1/3 cup sour cream
8-10 taco tortillas
4T chopped cilantro
6-8 oz queso fresco, crumbled
1 small onion, thinly sliced
Directions: Place chicken in a medium bowl. Add in seasoning, spices, cilantro, 2 T olive oil and half the lime juice. Mix well. Cover and let marinade at least 1 hour.
Once ready to cook, heat a medium size saute pan on high heat. Add in 1 T of olive oil and then the red pepper and jalapeño and cook till tender. Add in the chicken and cook 10-12 minutes on high heat mixing often. Add in the juice from other half of the lime and mix well. Once chicken is almost fully cooked, add in sour cream and stir to fully coated. Let cook 2-3 more minutes.
Heat tortillas 40-45 seconds in the microwave. To assemble the tacos, add 2-3 spoonfuls of the chicken mixture to tortillas, top with red onion, crumbled queso fresco and sprinkle with remaining cilantro. Serve and enjoy!
