Quick and Easy Freezable Chicken Tacos Recipe

These chicken tacos are so easy you’ll wonder why I did a blog post on them! But then again, I am all about easy so it makes perfect sense.

I may have mentioned it before but it bares repeating. If my husband had to live on tacos and pizza alone, he would do just fine and be a very happy man. I’m not sure how the rest of us would fare! We do love Mexican inspired food though. And recently I found this recipe in the family archives of recipes passed down to him when he moved away to college. They were definitely good and incredibly easy to get on the table. And freezer friendly too!

    Hey! Sorry, but I’m new to the freezing world. Should I freeze the chicken cooked or raw?

      Rachel if you are making it to freeze you can use raw or frozen breasts in this recipe. Then when you are ready to eat it, pull it from the freezer let it thaw overnight in the refrigerator and cook as directed above.
