Yummy Chicken Tacos

As a part of my rubber chicken this week, I wanted to come up with a couple of new ideas. So I started here, with the yummiest chicken tacos ever. It was a great surprise to the hubster, to come home to not beef, but chicken tacos, and a nice change of pace.

What I Learned in the Making

  • Corn tortillas work best, but I think you could use flour tortillas as well. I make my flour tortillas, but found some amazing corn tortillas at Trader Joe’s for 99 cents.
  • Avocados are mega-cheap at Aldi! I bought mine for 49 cents apiece!

Yummy Chicken Tacos

Yummy Chicken Tacos


  • Corn tortillas
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 8 oz chicken meat from Rubber Chicken
  • 1 T taco seasoning
  • 1 T water
  • Romaine lettuce, torn in half
  • Avocado, sliced
  • Tomato, sliced or chopped
  • Cheddar cheese, shredded


  1. Heat a skillet on medium, toss a tortilla into the skillet. Cook 30 seconds to one minute on each side, then put to the side.
  2. Meanwhile, add olive oil to another skillet and heat to medium.
  3. Add chicken to the skillet.
  4. Mix taco seasoning and water in a small bowl and pour over chicken.
  5. Cook until sauce thickens, about 3-5 minutes.
  6. Flatten tortillas on a plate, place 1/2 leaf romaine, 1 slice avocado, tomato, cheese on tortilla, then place cooked chicken on top.
  7. We added a Mexican corn (corn with chopped peppers) on top, then ate these like tacos. You can also top with sour cream.
