How to Make Chicken Tacos


  1. Place taco seasoning in a large resealable plastic bag; add chicken in batches and shake to coat.
  2. In a large skillet, cook and stir chicken in 2 tablespoons butter for 4-5 minutes or until juices run clear. Remove chicken and keep warm. In the same skillet, saute the onion and green pepper in remaining butter for 2-3 minutes or until crisp-tender.
  3. Combine the chicken, onion and green pepper; spoon into taco shells. Top with lettuce and cheese. Serve with salsa if desired.
  4. *TIP*: Round out this meal with quick and easy boxed Spanish rice, found in the rice section of the supermarket. It takes only minutes to prepare and everyone loves it!
