Michael's Tacos with Chicken Taco Filling Recipe
For the chicken:
1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
10 garlic cloves, minced
5 yellow onions minced
4 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breast, diced into 1/2-inch chunks
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
2 serrano chiles, sliced thin
2 tablespoons sweet paprika
2 tablespoons smoked paprika
2 tablespoons cumin seeds, toasted
2 tablespoons dried oregano
4 to 5 cups chicken stock or water
For the tacos:
2 red onions, sliced thin
1 head iceberg lettuce, sliced thin
12 radishes, sliced thin
6 small tomatoes, diced
1 pint sour cream
2 bunches cilantro, leaves roughly chopped
1 (15-ounce) can pinto or black beans, drained and rinsed
1 to 2 packages corn or flour tortillas (enough for 6 to 8 medium size tacos)
Heat a large saute pan over medium heat and pour in enough olive oil to coat the bottom of the pan. Add the garlic and onions and cook until soft and nicely caramelized, about 10 to 12 minutes.
In the meantime, season the chicken with salt and pepper. Sprinkle the flour over the chicken and toss to coat. Heat another large saute pan over medium-high heat and add 3 tablespoons of olive oil. Cook the chicken until it is lightly browned, about 6 to 8 minutes.
Once the onion mixture is caramelized and softened, add the serranos, paprikas, cumin, and oregano. When the chicken is done, transfer it to the pan with the onions. Pour in the broth or water and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer until the sauce is thick and delicious, approximately 20 minutes. Adjust seasoning with salt and pepper.
To serve the tacos: Put the toppings and chicken filling in bowls and allow guests to build their own tacos.
Marinated Avocado Recipe
1 red onion, thinly sliced
3 lemons, juiced
8 ripe avocados, peeled, pitted, and halved
1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for grilling
1 tablespoon finely minced garlic
Freshly ground black pepper
1/4 cup minced Italian parsley leaves
Slice the red onion and put it in a bowl with the lemon juice. Dice the avocado, add it to the bowl, and toss well to coat. Add the olive oil and garlic and season with salt and pepper. Just before serving stir in the parsley.
Grilled Corn Salsa Recipe
10 large ears corn, husked
1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for brushing
Salt and freshly ground pepper
8 vine-ripened tomatoes, about 1 pound total
1 cup diced red onion, 1/4-inch dice
4 tablespoons red wine vinegar, or more to taste
1/2 cup julienne fresh basil leaves
Brush the corn liberally with olive oil and season well with salt and pepper. Grill, turning every few minutes, until light gold all over and cooked, about 12 minutes. Let cool and cut off the kernels. Discard the cobs.
Core the tomatoes and cut a small X on the bottom of each. Brush with olive oil, season with salt and pepper, and place on the grill, X side down, away from direct heat. Cover the grill and cook until the tomatoes begin to soften but are not cooked all the way through (or they will melt through the grate!), about 15 minutes. Set aside until cool enough to handle, then peel. Cut the tomatoes in half crosswise and squeeze out the juice and the seeds through a sieve into a bowl. Reserve the juices and chop the flesh.
Put the onions in the non-reactive medium bowl and toss with 2 tablespoons of the vinegar. Let marinate until the color changes, about 10 minutes.
Add the chopped tomatoes, reserved tomato juice, onions, basil, and 1/3 cup olive oil to the corn. Toss well. Taste for seasoning and adjust with salt, pepper, and remaining vinegar. The salsa is best eaten the same day but will keep, covered and refrigerated, a day or so.
Serve with tortilla chips or as a topping for tacos.

Favorite E-Z recipes you might want to try.
Good Luck & enjoy.
(And more variations of recipe)
(My personal favorites….using this recipe
are the ‘wings & ribs….ummm good!)
4 skinless, boneless chicken breasts
1 cup catsup
1 12oz. can cola (pepsi, coke, etc.)
Put chicken in a non-stick pan.
Mix together catsup and cola, pour over chicken.
Bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat and cook 45 minutes.
(turning chicken a few times, while cooking...to prevent from sticking to pan)
Uncover, turn up the heat and continue to cook until the sauce
becomes thick and adheres to the chicken.
It turns into the most incredible BBQ sauce. Yummmm!
You can double the recipe and use more pieces of
chicken....wings...would be ideal...add some hot sauce....presto "Hot Wings"!
I have used Ribs, just as good.
I tried this recipe with 'meatballs'....was equally
as good...served over rice.
I found another variation.....omit the catsup and add a small jar of Salsa (any variety).
I have tried using Salsa (omitting the catsup....not).
You'd think a recipe with only '3' ingredients couldn't be messed up....wouldn't you??
Well...while I was preparing to fix the 'Cola Chicken' recipe
using Salsa.....I was also trying to carry on a conversation with my
husband...(just proves...I can't do two things at once)....mixed Salsa & Catsup (before I realized I was supposed to leave out the catsup) & Cola........still turned out really tasty (to me)...might be a little sweeter than some of you like.
I fixed chicken wings, (using the above recipe)
but...I added the spices from a MILD (I don't care for "HOT") Buffalo Wings packet...(the kind you get to bake in the oven).....I thought it was really good.....(but you/I can't find a 'bad' way to fix chicken).
Finally....!! I fixed the 'SALSA' chicken......that's good , too.
Another (bright)idea.....I thought of trying......replace the
catsup with a bottle of Shrimp Cocktail Sauce...and add a bag of (pop corn) shrimp.....!
Fixed the shrimp with cocktail sauce......eh...wasn't all that
great...was OK...probably won't be fixing it again.
Also tried beef stew cuts......that was pretty good.....I can see
myself making this again.
Served both over rice.....think the stew cuts would have been just as
good over noodles.
Gonna try some butterfly cut pork chopes…..or boneless chops…or pork steaks……should be good!
Try little cocktail wieners/sausages…for appetizers…..pork chops….pork steaks. (Maybe Vienna Sausages??)
CRUNCHY ONION CHICKEN
1 1/3 cups French’s Original French Fried Onions
4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves
1 egg, beaten
Onions in a plastic bag.
Chicken in egg
With onion crumbs, press firmly to adhere to chicken.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Place chicken on lightly greased baking pan.
Sprinkle with additional onion crumbs, if desired.
Bake for 20 minutes or until no longer pink in center.
4 boneless/skinless chicken breast (or any pieces you like)
1 can cream of mushroom soup.
1 can water
Place chicken in crock pot (or sauce pan for stove top cooking)
mix soup & 1 can of water together
pour over chicken
cook on medium heat until boiling then reduce heat and cook until chicken is really tender & falling apart.
Serve over noodles or rice or dressing....or???
Your choice of beef or pork (to fit crock-pot)
1 pkg. dry Ranch dressing mix
1 pkg. dry Italian dressing mix
1 pkg. dry Brown Gravy mix
1 cup water
Put beef in pot.
Mix together all the dry mixes….then add water …pour over meat and cover & cook on high 4-6 hours.
Until meat is tender.
The first time I mad it I didn’t have the Italian Dressing mix….so I added a pkg. of Onion Soup Mix….I have to say I liked that better.
If you use more water you might want to add more Brown Gravy mix….to make a thicker sauce. Was gonna add
potatoes and carrots…but never got around to it.

When my mom or I make chicken tacos, we do this
1. If the chicken is already prepared, rip it into smaller places.
2. Get corn tortillas
3. place the chicken in the tortilla, as well as any other items you want in it (beans, meat, no toppings)
4. Fold the tortilla into a taco shape and use a toothpick to keep it close.
5. Have a pan with oil (any works) heating up.
6. Place the taco into the oiled pan.
7. Let it sit on one side until it is light brown, then flip it over and do the other side.
8. Let it sit on a pile of paper towlines until cooled off. Let excess oil drain into the paper towlines.
After you let it cool off take out toothpicks, put what you want in the taco and enjoy.
IF your chicken is not cooked then place it in a large pot with water and let it cook until tender. This way the chicken is soft and not hard and easy to rip apart.

if you fry those with the chicken- then you're making Chicken Fajitas! For the best tacos- you should get some black beans and rice and put those on the tacos with the chicken...
