Chicken Ranch Tacos

My family gobbled these tacos down as if none of us had ever eaten before. We ate every last piece of chicken… next time I will make 4 chicken breasts instead of 3! Granted, we had all been working and playing outside and were eating a little bit late, but I like to think we gobbled it up because the tacos we just that good! This recipe will definitely become part of my regular rotation.

If you want to save a bit of time, you can replace all of the spices with a package of gluten free taco seasoning and use an allergy friendly store bought ranch dressing, but I prefer to make my own.

So here it is:

  2. Place chicken in glass baking dish and season both sides with salt and pepper. Bake 25 - 30 minutes, or until cooked through
  3. Then, cut chicken into bite-size pieces.
  4. Transfer chicken to a large skillet and turn burner to medium heat. Then, add the seasonings: onion powder, garlic powder, salt, cumin, paprika, chili powder, oregano, and sugar. Notice: You do not add olive oil, cooking spray, or water to the pan! Stir until chicken is coated and everything is heated through, about 3 minutes.
  5. Add the ranch dressing and stir it around. Soooo good!!!! Turn the burner down to a simmer to keep warm while you heat the tortillas and stir occasionally.
  6. Add about 2 Tbsp. olive oil to a skillet and turn burner to medium heat.
  7. Heat tortillas in skillet about a minute per side or just until soft. Transfer to a plate lined with a damp paper towel. Then, cover with a damp paper towel to keep warm. Repeat with remaining tortillas.
  8. Now turn it into a taco!!! Place the meat on bottom and garnish with tomatoes, lettuce, and more ranch!!! De-licious!!!
