Fried Chicken Tacos

My family loves to invite people over, but we are not very good at making plans far in advance. We usually text our friends the day of important games and invite them over. I keep some staple items in my home so I know I can throw together a great meal to serve guests when we decide to invite someone to eat with us.

 

When we lived in Mexico, we loved to serve Tacos Dorados. They were really easy to make. You just needed cooked, shredded chicken that you put in a corn tortilla. You rolled it up into a tube and fried it. Then you topped it with some cream, lettuce, and green salsa.

 

I have “Americanized” these tacos, and they are the perfect food to serve when we are watching basketball together.

Fried Chicken Tacos

  • 20 – small corn tortillas
  • about 2 pounds of boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into pieces
  • 1 packet of taco seasoning (or my homemade mix)
  • 2 Tablespoons Oil
  • 1 – 7 oz. can diced, green chilies
  • 2 cups grated cheese (your favorite for tacos)
  •  Sour Cream
  •  Pico de gallo
  • shredded lettuce
  • jalapenos
  • guacamole
  • Oil for frying tacos

Instructions For Fried Chicken Tacos:

Heat 2 tablespoons oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chicken and cook for a couple of minutes. Add the taco seasoning and the diced green chilies. Stir and cook until chicken is completely cooked.

How to Fry the Chicken Tacos:

Heat a couple of inches of oil in a heavy skillet over medium-high.

Add some chicken in the middle of a tortilla and fold tortilla in half.

With tongs, carefully place the taco into the oil. You will need to hold the top side down for a few seconds to form it in place.

Turn the taco after 30 to 45 seconds, or when each side gets light golden brown. (You can add about 3 tacos to the pan to fry at the same time.)

When you remove the tacos from the oil, shake out any excess oil and set them on a plate with paper towels to drain even more of the oil.

Repeat until all the tacos are fried.

Garnish your fried chicken taco!
