Recipe Ingredients for PW Wednesday's Fried Chicken Tacos

1/2 tsp. chili powder
1/2 tsp. ground cumin
1/8 tsp. salt
1/2 tbsp. canola oil
1/2 pounds, boneless, skinless, chicken breasts, cut into cubes
4 ounce diced green chiles
8 corn tortillas
1/4 cups Cheddar Shredded Cheese

Recipe Directions for PW Wednesday's Fried Chicken Tacos

  1. In a small bowl, mix together the chili powder, cumin, and salt. Set aside.

  2. In a large skillet over medium heat, heat 1 tbsp. of canola oil and add the chicken and chiles. Saute for about 3-5 minutes or until the chicken has lost its color.

  3. Sprinkle in the spice mixture and saute the chicken until all is cooked through. Remove the pan from heat and set aside.

  4. In a separate skillet, heat up 1 cup of canola oil. Drop in a small piece of your tortilla to see if the oil is hot enough. It will sizzle as soon as it hits the oil.

  5. Spoon about 1/4 cup of the chicken into the tortilla then grasp the tortilla shut with tongs.

  6. Gently lay the filled tortilla in the hot oil, holding down the top half of the tortilla so it remains closed.

  7. Cook one side until golden brown, 30-45 seconds, then flip the taco over to fry the other side. Cook the other side until brown and crispy.

  8. Remove each taco from the pan, allowing the excess oil to drip out one end. Wrap in a paper towel and gently shake it to remove excess oil.

  9. While the tacos are still hot, gently stick some cheese inside then add whatever toppings you like to add to your tacos.

  10. Julie?s notes: There?s a wide array of toppings you can use for these tacos: sour cream, diced tomatoes, lettuce, guacamole, hot sauce, etc. Anything you top your tacos with!
