Chicken Tacos

Billie Blair


I love tacos, any kind, any time. This recipe came to me, thru Ree Drummond's cookbook "Food from my Frontier" page #162. They are so good, and I had enough for 2 days. I did change the procedure the second day and browned them on a flat grill, which is a lot easier. I hope you all enjoy them and I recommend that you purchase her book, as she has some very good recipes in there.
