    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    All ingredients amounts may be adjusted to taste --- you may substitute the bottled Hidden Valley Ranch dressing for the package, I prefer the package --- I have even made these using Caesar salad dressing from my Kittencal's Famous Caesar Salad instead of the Ranch :)

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    • 6 -8 taco shells (I use the stand n' stuff)
    • 2 tablespoons oil
    • 5 -6 boneless skinless chicken breasts (cut into small bite-size pieces)
    • 0.5 (1 1/4 ounce) package taco seasoning mix (can use more to taste)
    • 1 (28 g) package hidden valley ranch dressing mix
    • 2 cups shredded head lettuce
    • 1 -2 tomato, finely chopped
    • 2 cups shredded Mexican blend cheese (or to taste)
    • 2 -3 green onions, chopped

    Directions:

    1. 1
      In a small bowl mix together the dry ranch dressing mix with 1 cup milk and 1 cup of mayonnaise (or according to the package directions for dressing, I also add in 1 teaspoon fresh garlic but that is optional) mix until well combined; refrigerate until ready to use.
    2. 2
      Heat 2 tablespoon oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.
    3. 3
      Add in the chicken cubes and toss with a spoon until cooked through, seasoning with the taco mix just before the chicken is finished cooking (do not overcook the chicken cubes or they will be dry) transfer to a bowl.
    4. 4
      Divide the cooked chicken cubes between each taco shell, then drizzle the top of the chicken with a small amount of prepared Ranch dressing (make certain to save some dressing to drizzle on the top of the tacos).
    5. 5
      Top with a small amount of shredded lettuce, chopped tomatoes, shredded cheese, then green onion.
    6. 6
      Drizzle the top of the tacos with more ranch dressing.
    7. 7
      Delicious!

      This is a great quick weekday supper! I used Rotisserie Chicken from Costco which eliminated the need cooking the chicken breasts in oil. I heated the cut-up Rotisserie Chicken in a pan and added Taco Seasoning Mix - the Best! till well heated. The Ranch Dressing really made the flavor of these chicken tacos! I served with the chopped tomatoes, green onion and lettuce and also added tomato salsa as well. Thanks so much, Kittencal!

      My fiancé LOVED these. Making your own ranch makes these so much better as I hate bottled ranch. Thanks for the great recipe Kitten!
