Ingredients

3 c
diced cooked chicken no skin white and dark please
1 can(s)
green chile sauce
3 Tbsp
minced garlic (powerded works too!)
1/2 c
raw onion diced
salt to taste
TOPPINGS
2 c
shredded lettuce
2 c
sharp cheddar cheese i like the finely shredded
8
taco shells (warmed)
1 pt
sour cream
2
diced tomatoes

Directions Step-By-Step

1
I purchase precooked chickens from the deli, so mucgh easier to pull apart and dice but you can cook your own. You can get about 3 cups per cooked chicken for the recipe.
2
Heat a skillet with just 2 tbs of oil and one pat of butter heat on medium high heat.
3
In the meantime dice an onion, mince three garlic cloves.
4
Add the onion and garlic to the hot skillet ( I use cast iron). Stir as needed until it begins to brown.
5
Dice chicken to edible bites for taco shells
6
Add the can of geen chile sauce to the onion and garlic and let it simmer for 5 minutes so the flavors mingle. At this time you can add a can of diced green chiles or 1/3 cup of white rice (cooked)Allow to cook through about 5 to 10 minutes.
7
Add the cooked chicken and stir. Turn on low and cover allow the mix to simmer about 5 minutes, stir and recover. Turn the heat off at this time, but keep covered for the flavors to meld, I rarely add salt but at this point do so, since the chicke was precooked there usually is enough salt already.
8
Keep your chicken tacos warm while you prepare the toppings and taco shells. I setup buffet style and serve with black beans, rice and green onion. Oh so delish!!!
