The sauce is slightly spicy and creamy at the same time, while the sliced chicken breast is cooked quickly on the stovetop, so it stays tender and moist.
I’ve made the recipe a number of times, but this time I used Tyson® Fresh Chicken, which made the prep even easier than normal. Fresh chicken is super convenient: no time spent trying to defrost frozen chicken in the microwave without accidentally cooking it and turning it to rubber (ew). The less time I spend preparing dinner, the more time I can spend enjoying it with my family. With Tyson Fresh Chicken all I needed to do was pull it out of the fridge, slice it up, and start cooking! To make easy saucy chicken tacos, gather the following ingredients: (printable recipe card at the end of the post)
Start with 1.5 to 2 pounds of boneless skinless chicken breasts and slice them into strips. Heat one teaspoon of oil in a large nonstick skillet and add the chicken (as shown below).
Cook and stir over medium-hi heat for about 5 minutes, until chicken is white (or very lightly brown) on the outside. Drain a can of Rotel tomatoes and green chiles (use mild if desired) and add them to the skillet. Turn the heat up to high and cook and stir 5-7 more minutes until chicken is cooked through. (Note: Chicken must be cooked to an internal temperature of 170 degrees for boneless products and 180 degrees for bone in chicken products.)
Drain any liquid from the skillet, and turn the heat to low. Add sour cream, taco seasoning, and grated cheddar cheese and stir until smooth.
Serve the chicken on corn or flour tortillas and garnish with chopped cilantro, lime, and lettuce (add additional cheese and sour cream if desired).
