READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by NC Gal

This is a Kraft recipe I have been making for years. Very easy and tasty. Super easy if you use a roasted chicken from the store deli.

Easy, tasty and surprisingly filling! This was a great Friday night dinner to relax with; I used one chicken breast and corn tortillas as that's what I had on hand. Even after emptying half a taco seasoning sachet in, they weren't remotely spicy, so I recommend using hot salsa if you like your dinners warm! This would be very kid friendly, don't know anyone who wouldn't enjoy it - thanks for posting!
