Weeknight Chicken Tacos
Freezer week continues. Tacos remain on my list of go-to improv recipes for a tasty dinner our of whatever's in the fridge. In this case: some chicken thighs that have been in the freezer almost too long. I chopped them very small and browned them in the pan on one side until they had almost crispy edges. Then a quick scrape of the pan and you can mix in your taco spices. I generally have some sort of tomato juice leftover in the fridge from a can of tomatoes. I like oregano, chilies, cumin, hot sauce, salt and pepper. I find most chile powders taste dull and I avoid them in favor of a good hot sauce. Put a little chicken on a warmed corn tortilla, with a lot of fresh lettuce and tomato on top.
