Recipe: Easy Chicken Tacos. YUM!

I don’t know if you are familiar with Cooks Country TV or America’s Test Kitchen.  Gary and I love the shows, and watch them on our local PBS station as often as we can!  They have so many delicious recipes, and all are easy enough even I can make them!

A few weekends ago, the episode that aired showed how to make Easy Chicken Tacos. They looked amazing, so I made them for dinner the very next night. They were even better than I expected, and a hit with the kids too!  So here’s the recipe:

Easy Chicken Tacos
From the episode: Southwestern Suppers
To warm the tortillas, wrap them in foil and heat in a 350-degree oven for 15 minutes. Top the tacos with shredded lettuce, grated cheese, diced avocado, tomato, and sour cream.
Serves 6.
3 tablespoons unsalted butter
4 garlic cloves , minced
2 teaspoons minced chipotle chiles in adobo sauce
1/2 cup orange juice
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
3/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro leaves
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (about 1 1/2 pounds)
1 teaspoon yellow mustard
Salt and pepper
12 (6-inch) flour tortillas
1. POACH CHICKEN Melt butter in large skillet over medium-high heat. Add garlic and chipotle and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Stir in orange juice, Worcestershire, and ½ cup cilantro and bring to boil. Add chicken and simmer, covered, over medium-low heat until meat registers 160 degrees, 10 to 15 minutes, flipping chicken halfway through cooking. Transfer to plate and tent with foil.
2. SHRED AND SAUCE Increase heat to medium-high and cook until liquid is reduced to ¼ cup, about 5 minutes. Off heat, whisk in mustard. Using 2 forks, shred chicken into bite-sized pieces and return to skillet. Add remaining cilantro to skillet and toss until well combined. Season with salt and pepper. Serve with tortillas.
I was in such a hurry to eat these tacos that I failed to take a photo of the chicken IN the taco I made! The one from the website will work though!

And that’s it! Easy peasy and AMAZINGLY tasty!  Let me know how you like it!
