Top-ranked recipe named "Chicken Tacos with Lime-Cilantro Crema"
This is a recipe I adapted from a fish taco recipe. I make it with leftover chicken but you can season raw chicked and cook it in a skillet in minutes. You can use fat free mayo and fat free sour cream to decrease fat & calories. I serve it with Pinto Salad.
"I haven't made the crema, but the taco seasonings are in a wonderful proportion. I use one large chicken breast since it's just me & my husband and boil it to get it tender. Once that's cool enough, I just shred it by hand, add the seasonings, add a few teaspoons of diced jalapeños and their juice, a bag if 10 minute instant rice and enough chicken stock to soak into the rice. It's WONDERFUL hot and cold as leftovers! :)"- moomasters
To prepare crema, combine the first 8 ingredients in a small bowl, set aside.
Season cooked chicken with cumin, Paprika, cayenne, salt and garlic powder. Heat in skillet. Heat tortillas according to package directions. Divide chicken between tortillas, top with cabbage and crema.

Faith_Garden 11 month agoI loved the cream and the chicken spices! After rolling the tortillas I gave them a quick pass in hot oil in a pan. Not deep fried, just enough oil make them golden. Thanks for posting!

Sujen 1 year agoExcellent! I made this using tilapia unread of chicken. I also sautéed some onion, poblano pepper, and mushrooms using the same seasonings. It was great!
