CHICKEN tacos for dinner! Yum!

I hate to admit it, but I didn't think tacos with anything other than hamburger would taste good.  I love chicken, but it never even occurred to me to try chicken tacos.  They just didn't sound that good to me at all.  But when my boyfriend and I were in CA visiting his family last year, his sister made us chicken tacos.  Other than the onions she put in them (yuck!) they were delish!

If you like onions, then dice some onions and cook them by themselves until they are caramelized, and then add the following ingredients.  If you don't like onions, then this is how we make them:

All you need is chicken breasts, garlic salt and pepper.  Yep, that's it!

Cut up your chicken breasts, I like to dice them into small pieces.  Sprinkle some garlic salt and pepper on them, and then put them in a hot pan with just a little bit of oil that is already hot.  We like canola oil, as it's healthier than vegetable oil.  Fry the chicken breasts and keep seasoning them with the garlic salt and pepper to taste. 

When the chicken is cooked it will look like this:

Now, while I'm cooking the chicken, my boyfriend is frying up some corn tortillas in canola oil.  I used to also think you could only eat processed shells like Ortega.  Wow, was I wrong.  These corn shells fried in oil are the BEST!!

The next and most important step - fill the taco shells, and devour!  My boyfriend likes cheese in his, I like mine just chicken and shells.  Fill with whatever you like.  You will love these!
