This recipe was very easy and fast. My kids loved it. We served it in flour tortillas with mushrooms cheese and tomatoes. I used some legs and thighs instead of breasts it is much cheaper. I just boiled and shredded the chicken with a fork. It turned out great! Read More

I give it one star because my family ate it but otherwise it was a disaster! The poor little veggies had practically burned away to nothing while the chicken was still half raw in the middle. It took some quick thinking to even keep them at an edible level. Read More

I think you have to cook the chicken first then shred it as the vegetables sauté. This needs seasonings such as cumin garlic chili powder etc. Read More

This recipe left like it is gets a low rating because bland. I used leftover chicken I had from the baked crockpot chicken I shredded added fresh chopped cilantro 1 tsp. cumin 1 tsp. chili powder fresh garlic added just enough broth to simmer chopped onion green pepper and roma tomatoe. Then filled wheat tortilla with mixture added cheese to melt. Pretty healthy taco. Read More

I agree this filling could use some more flavoring and I used a hand blender/food processor to really mince the chicken but it was darn good I'll probably add many more spices next run through. Read More

This recipe as written both ingredients and directions is a 1.5 to 2 stars at best. I read it read it again and made a Scooby Doo "baroooo??" noise. I equated this recipe to somebody telling me to make a tuna fish sandwich by opening the can of tuna mixing it w/ just mayo and slapping it b/t bread. Sure it's a starting point but the only way to take this recipe from yawn to yum is by tweaking it a bit. That being said I did the chicken FIRST then added the onions and peppers and began jabbing at the chicken w/ my spatula to break it into smaller and smaller pieces. I then added 3 TB of "Taco Seasoning I" recipe from here along w/ 3/4 c. H20 boiled then simmered until the liquid was absorbed. Served them w/ green onion cilantro tomatoes and salsa and then the recipe was scrumptious. I hate to leave a bad review but the recipe just needs to major spicin' up. Read More

This recipe is a starter. You must add seasoning and spices to make it a "taco" otherwise it just cooked chicken and veggies. Definitely needs taco seasoning or cumin garlic paprika and some chili powder. Read More

I liked that the "basics" where there and it was easy but it needed Zing!!! I added in medium salsa Banana Peppers and that gave it a lift that I was thinking of when I hear the word "taco" Read More

It wasn't awful but I needed to add seasonings to make the tacos flavorful. This is an OK base but not a complete recipe. Read More
