Crispy Chicken Tacos

  • 1 lbs. chicken tenderloins, Smart Chicken
  • 8 tortillas, corn and wheat mixture
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 cup sweet onion, diced
  • 2 teaspoons garlic, minced
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • 10 ounces red enchilada sauce, 10-ounce can
  • 1 cup shredded cheese, mozzarella or cheddar

Avocado Lime Crema

  • ¼ cup light sour cream
  • ½ cup cilantro, remove stems
  • ½ avocado, remove peel and pit
  • 3-4 tablespoons lime juice, fresh squeezed
  • 2 teaspoons garlic, about 2 cloves
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ jalapeno, option to remove seeds and veins


  • 1 saute pan
  • 1 baking tray
  • 1 food processor


  • Preheat the oven 375 degrees.
  • Combine light sour cream, fresh cilantro, lime juice, jalapeno, avocado, salt and garlic in a food processor. Buzz until smooth, set aside.
  • Heat a sauté pan over medium heat. Add olive oil, diced onion and minced garlic.
  • Sauté for 5 minutes or until the onion is translucent and the garlic is fragrant.
  • Next, add the chicken tenderloins. Season with salt and black pepper.
  • Then, you’ll add a can of enchilada sauce.
  • Let everything simmer over medium low heat until the chicken is cooked through, and the sauce has reduced by half.
  • Then, using two forks, carefully shred the chicken into small pieces.

Assemble the tacos

  • Wrap the tortillas with paper towels, and warm the tortillas in the microwave for 30 seconds. Lightly spray both sides with olive oil cooking spray and lay them flat on a baking tray.
  • Add even amounts of shredded cheese and shredded chicken filling.
  • Place in the oven for 5-6 minutes, then fold the tortillas in half. This allows the tortilla to get crispy on the outside.
  • Cook for another 5-10 minutes in the oven.
  • Remove, top with lime cream and garnishes. Enjoy hot.
