Save Money and Make Your Own Fast-Food-Type Chicken Soft Tacos


by Monica Resinger

I love Taco Time's chicken soft tacos, but because money is tight, I can't go out to eat as much as I'd like, so I created my own chicken soft tacos and they taste very close to Taco Time's version. I save a significant amount of money by making my own, not to mention the time and gas to get there. Here's my recipe.

Chicken Soft Tacos
Serves 4+

4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
Cooking oil
Seasoning salt
Cumin
2 Cups shredded cheddar cheese
Shredded lettuce
8 flour tortillas
Ranch salad dressing
Hot sauce (if you have extra little packets of Taco Time hot sauce, that really makes these like Taco Time's!)


Preheat oven to 350*. Place the chicken breasts on a baking sheet, drizzle with oil, then sprinkle with seasoning salt & cumin. Bake for 20-30 minutes or until done. Meanwhile, place the cheese and lettuce in serving bowls and heat the tortillas in the microwave for 1-2 minutes. When the chicken is done, cut into bite size pieces & place in a serving bowl. To make a soft taco, place a little shredded lettuce on a heated tortilla & top with ranch dressing and hot sauce to taste; place shredded cheese and cooked chicken on top of lettuce, then roll the tortilla buritto style (fold in top or bottom, then roll up from side to side).
