BAKED CHICKEN TACOS

These baked chicken tacos are loaded with seasoned chicken, cheese and salsa. The perfect easy dinner for a busy day!

This recipe starts with cooked, shredded chicken. I typically use a rotisserie chicken to make life a little easier, but you could really use any leftover chicken. The chicken is tossed in taco seasoning and lime juice and stuffed into taco shells.

BAKED CHICKEN TACOS

I like to use the taco shells with the flat bottoms for this recipe, that way they'll stand up in the pan. I typically can fit 10 tacos inside a standard 9″x13″ pan. The tacos are topped with a generous helping of shredded cheddar cheese, then baked to crispy cheesy perfection.

You could actually serve these tacos as is with just a sprinkling of cilantro, but I like to add more toppings. Let's face it, tacos are all about the toppings. I typically do shredded lettuce and store bought pico de gallo, but other great toppings are sour cream, diced avocado, sliced olives and jalapenos.

INGREDIENTS:
  • 10 flat bottomed taco shells
  • the juice from 1 lime
  • 3 cups cooked shredded chicken (such as rotisserie chicken)
  • 2 teaspoons taco seasoning
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • ½ teaspoon ground cumin
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 tablespoons chopped cilantro
  • 1 cup prepared pico de gallo or salsa
  • 1½ cups shredded romaine lettuce
INSTRUCTIONS:
  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Arrange the taco shells inside a 9"x13" pan.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine the chicken, lime juice, taco seasoning, cumin and garlic powder. Stir until chicken is coated with the seasonings.
  3. Divide the chicken mixture among the taco shells and top with cheese.
  4. Bake for 10 minutes or until tacos are warmed through and cheese is melted.
  5. Sprinkle with cilantro.
  6. Divide the lettuce and pico de gallo among the tacos and serve immediately.
