    Very good! There is a lot of liquid remaining, so next time, I'll try to drain it a little more, before serving. I also thought a little salt was needed, even though I didn't use reduced-sodium taco seasoning. We did not add cheese to the mixture itself, but topped the tacos with it, as is typical. Will definitely make again! Thanks for sharing!

    We were really not wowed by this - it seemed a little on the greasy side to us and I was the only one who ate the leftovers. It seems most people have really enjoyed it so that must just be personal preference. Made for Spring '12 PAC.

    Great! My fiance doesn't care for chicken and bit into his first taco and said 'oh, yeah'. He are them for the next 3 meals. Plan on making this a regular in our house. I did 1lb breasts and 1lb thighs with 1/2 cup 2% cheese. That made about 20 tacos worth at 2 Weight Watchers Points Plus per taco serving! It was about a 1/4a cup of meat too!

    Thank you for sharing! I made this last night for our NYE taco was a big hit!

    Wonderful and so easy! I used 3 pounds of frozen chicken thighs, cooked in the crockpot, and shredded. Lots of liquid, I served with a slotted spoon so we could drain some off before filling tortillas. Flavor was delicious! Froze the leftovers and look forward to chicken enchiladas in my future. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
