Saucy Chicken Tacos

April 30, 2021

“We truly loved the crunch of the sliced radishes and creaminess of the avocado with tomato sauced chicken,” Lea Ann Brown says. “It all came together for this flavorful and exciting soft taco recipe.”


Coat chicken breasts with 1 tablespoon olive oil. Sprinkle with taco seasoning and bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes, or until done. When chicken is cool enough, shred chicken with fork. In a saucepan, cook onions in remaining olive oil until tender. Add chicken, tomato sauce and remaining seasonings and simmer on medium low heat, covered for 15 minutes. Warm tortillas. Scoop a spoonful of chicken into each tortilla, and add lettuce, cheese, olives and avocado.
