Description

Super simple and super delicious!! Crunchy taco shells filled with flavorful, tender chicken This will become a go-to meal for you!


Scale

Ingredients

  • ½ cup honey
  • ¼ cup lime juice
  • 1 Tbsp. chili powder
  • ½ tsp. garlic powder
  • 1 1/2 pound chicken breasts (, cooked and shredded (about 34 breasts))
  • 10 taco shells ((I use the stand n’ stuff tortillas by Old El Paso))
  • 1 1/2 cups grated cheese ((I used half pepper jack and half Mozzarella))

Instructions

  1. Stir together the honey, lime juice, chili power and garlic until well mixed. Add the cooked, shredded chicken and let marinate for at least 30 minutes (the longer the better, I usually let mine marinate at least a couple hours).
  2. Place the taco shells in a 9×13 inch baking dish that has been lightly sprayed. Divide the chicken evenly among the tortilla shells Top each with a little Pepper Jack cheese.
  3. Bake in a 400° F. oven for 10 minutes or until cheese is melted and chicken is heated through. Serve warm with your favorite toppings. Enjoy!

Notes

Feel free to use a rotisserie chicken if you’d like. You will need about 3 1/2 – 4 cups shredded chicken.
