Chicken Tacos

5 stars based on 39 votes

chicken tacos

Last month, I told you about The Family Dinner Cookbook and how it inspired me to create new traditions to make dinnertime more special and fun for my family. One idea from the book that I’ve already put into action is Taco Tuesdays. So far, it’s been a hit: the kids wake up on Tuesdays all “Yay, it’s taco night!” and I love it because tacos are quick and easy to make. We’ve tried all sorts of different tacos (definitely try these fish tacos) but these chicken tacos are the kids’ favorite. They’re a healthier spin on traditional beef tacos — and they’re just as good, if not better.

To make them, begin by chopping your vegetables. You can do this in a food processor if you like; just be sure not to purée them.

Normally, I don’t believe in hiding vegetables but in this case I dice them very small so my kids don’t notice them (or at least they can’t pick them out). I figure what they don’t know won’t hurt them, and one night where I’m not nagging them to eat their vegetables is good for all of us.

Heat the olive oil in a large pan and add the vegetables.

Cook over medium heat for 10-15 minutes, until soft.

Add ground chicken and spices use a wooden spoon to break chicken into small pieces.

Turn the heat to high and use a wooden spoon to break the chicken into small clumps; cook until the chicken is partially cooked, about 5 minutes.

Add the tomato sauce, then turn the heat down to low. Simmer, stirring occasionally and breaking chicken into smaller clumps, for 10-15 minutes or until chicken is cooked through. Sprinkle with fresh chopped cilantro, then taste and adjust seasoning if necessary.

Meanwhile, heat the shells in the oven. To serve, spoon the chicken inside the shells and top with shredded lettuce and cheese.

Chicken Tacos

Servings: 12 tacos
Total Time: 30 Minutes


  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 medium yellow onions, finely chopped
  • 2 bell peppers (any color), finely chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 2 pounds ground chicken (not extra-lean all breast meat)
  • 1 tablespoon paprika
  • 2 teaspoons ancho chili powder
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper (optional)
  • 1-3/4 teaspoons salt
  • 1 (8 oz) can tomato sauce (1 cup)
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro (see note)
  • 12 hard taco shells
  • 2 cups shredded lettuce or purple cabbage, optional for topping
  • 2 cups shredded Mexican cheese blend, optional for topping


  1. Preheat the oven to 325°F.
  2. Heat the olive oil in large sauté pan over medium heat. Add the onions, bell peppers, and garlic and cook, stirring occasionally, until soft and just starting to brown, 10 to 15 minutes.
  3. Add the chicken, paprika, ancho chili powder, cumin, oregano, cayenne (if using), and salt. Increase the heat to high; use a wooden spoon to stir and break the chicken into small clumps. Cook until the chicken is partially cooked, about 5 minutes. Stir in the tomato sauce, then reduce the heat to low. Simmer, stirring occasionally and breaking chicken into smaller clumps, until chicken is cooked through, 12 to 15 minutes. Sprinkle with fresh chopped cilantro. Taste and adjust seasoning if necessary.
  4. Meanwhile, remove the taco shells from the package and lay sideways on baking sheet. Pull the stack apart, overlapping the edges slightly. Bake for 6-7 minutes, or until crisp. Spoon the chicken into the shells and serve with toppings.
  5. Note: To save time, you can chop the bell peppers and onions in a food processor; just be sure not to purée them. You can also use 1 teaspoon ground coriander in place of the fresh cilantro; add it along with the other spices.

    We love this recipe — have made it several times now. It’s very easy to tailor the flavor and heat to your liking. I would say it’s an active recipe where I am pretty much working at it for the full cook time.

    The first time there was a lot of oil left in the pan so I have subsequently reduced it each time almost to half the recipe amount and have seen no downside to the reduction.

    We are also watching sodium here so I use just 1 tsp as it’s easy enough for an individual to season with salt to their taste.

    Good for tacos, taco salad, lettuce wraps. We eat it with plain Greek yogurt and fresh guacamole. Definitely recommend this one.

    I have tried several different tacos recipes from scratch and my family claims they’re all better than the store bought variety but I clearly hadn’t found the right one until now!! My husband and teenage boys said I can stop experimenting and just keep on making this one! I used ground turkey because it was what I had on hand. They were awesome!!!! Thank you as always for sharing your expertise.

    I’ve always preferred ground beef tacos but this chicken taco recipe made me change my mind. It worked well as a weeknight dinner because it was quick and, other than adding a piece of fruit, a complete dinner. My family said this one was a keeper.

    - Nisa Felps on February 22, 2017 Reply
    • Hi Nisa, I haven’t cooked with ground soy, but I suspect it should work. (Depending upon how much sodium the ground soy has, you may need to reduce the salt in the recipe.) I’d love to hear how they turn out this way!

    I just made this for the third time and every time a tweak it a little based on what I have on hand (what I forget to buy) and every time it’s been fantastic- such a great alternative to packaged taco seasonings- very fresh and you an control the salt. Truthfully I always do lean ground beef and it works great with that. Last week I made with without bell peppers, skipped the ancho chili powder and used smoked paprika it was terrific and still so flavorful. and the best part- my kids raved about it! Next time I make it I decided to measure out an extra portion and put it in a baggie for next time.

    Delicious, very flavorful and quick! I used half the amount of oil just to keep down the calories. I also substituted red pepper flakes since I was out of cayenne.

    Question: why not use the extra-lean chicken? Is it due to the loss of flavor from less fat?

    - Maret on September 8, 2016 Reply
    • Glad you enjoyed them, Maret! I find the extra-lean chicken a bit dry; it also doesn’t have as much flavor.

  • ***** FANTASTIC***** I do not know usually provide reviews, but had to tell everyone to try these tacos. I wanted to test them every 2 – 3 minutes to get another 3-4 spoonsful. I am sure I will never want ground beef tacos again. They were great with the margaritas on this website. The margaritas were so fresh and a lot less sugar. Great Reviews at Uno De Mayo get together. I cannot wait for your cookbook!. Your website is my secret weapon in the kitchen.

    I’ll be honest. I have never cooked before with ground chicken and was a little skeptical how these would taste compared to beef tacos. I have to say, I loved them!! This will definitely be going into the rotation. Much better flavor than the seasoning packet that I am used to.

    Just had to leave a review finally. I make this at least once a week (Taco Tuesdays!) My husband, 6-year old son, and I love this recipe! I won’t ever make tacos any other way. I love how easy it is too and of course so much better than the packet seasoning. I love the ancho chile powder because it adds a rich smoky flavor and doesn’t have too much heat for my son. My husband adds sriracha mayo and I add plain ol’ sriracha sauce and it becomes spicy for us. Thanks for this recipe! 5 STARS!

  • have you ever tried these with soft taco shells?

    - Cathy on October 6, 2015 Reply

      This is to reply to Cathy regarding trying these with soft taco shells. We have had them with hard taco shells, and soft flour tortillas as well as soft corn tortilla and it’s come out great with each of them.
      With the hard taco shells I just heat them in the microwave for about 20-25 seconds. Soft flour I wrap them in a wet paper towel and microwave them up to a minute depending how many there are. And for the corn tortillas I just heat them in a pan over a fire. No oil needed, just turn them over until they crisp up a bit. Hope this helps.

    OMG this was so good! My 6 & 3 year old loved it, and apparently they were the best tacos EVER?! Not especially spicy but more delicate and aromatic in flavour. I used turkey mince instead of chicken as I was on a limited calorie day and switched out actual taco shells for lettuce bowls for just me. Big hit, this will be a regular occurrence in our house ?

    We didn’t have the red sauce so we just added about 1/4 cup of water to the spices. The tacos still still tasted great, but the meat didn’t “hold together” as well and tended to fall out of the shell. Nonetheless, it was delicious. Having made this once with lean ground chicken and once with ‘regular’ (85% lean) ground turkey, I have to say the latter ground turkey version had more flavor.

    This is the first recipe from this site that I have prepared & it was delicious! I love the addition of all the fresh veggies to the taco meat mixture. We make tacos all the time with a homemade spice mix but this mix of spices was even better! I added 1 tsp of coriander to the spice mix as recommended in the recipe for those who do not care for cilantro – thank you, Jennifer for that great tip! I think coriander is my new favorite spice.

    We’ve just had Taco Tuesday (on a Thursday) and got thumbs up from all around the table. We used minced Turkey as we couldn’t find Chicken and it was a little runny. We used Pasata instead of tomato sauce, perhaps that’s why? When you say tomato sauce, do you mean ketchup? Anyhoo, flavour was lovely and the kids all ate peppers, onions and tomatos with no grumbling.

    - Lee Ingold on September 11, 2014 Reply
    • Hi Lee, You must be in the UK? I’ve never seen pasata in the States but I believe it is uncooked tomato puree, while the tomato sauce I use is cooked tomato puree (it’s not ketchup). I don’t think that would have made a big difference, though. Sometimes ground meats release a lot of liquid; that was likely the issue. If it happens again, you can always spoon some of the excess liquid out before adding the tomato sauce. Hope that helps!

  • I actually use the extra lean turkey when I make these, and they are not the least bit dry- still extremely tasty! I also substituted smoked paprika for the regular (because that’s what was in the cabinet and I wasn’t about to run to the store). The hint of smoke was actually a *really* nice addition! I’m about to make another batch for a “Taco Box” since my best friend just haad a baby. I always include the recipe when I do such a thing, because inevitably someone always asks for the recipe!!

  • I made this recipe for the first time the other night and this one will replace all my other taco recipes. It was easy and delicious and had all the spices on hand already. I did saute my veggies separately and kept them separate including putting the cilantro in with the veggies as my son does not like many of the veggies. I also used a red onion for more color. This also means I can pile on more veggies! I used ground beef instead of the chicken too. It was good, easy and will definitely be a repeater…maybe not every Tuesday, but more often than I make it now. Thanks!

I used to buy a seasoning packet, but after finding this recipe, I make my own taco seasoning and it is much healthier! I can control the amount of sodium in my tacos.

    A great recipe that can be used for a variety of “Taco Tuesdays” and a staple in my house now!

  • Another terrific recipe from this site! I made it for my in-laws’ family, two of whom are Mexican, and they all loved it! It was so flavorful! I forgot to add in the garlic until the very end and forgot to add in the cilantro at all because I was in a time crunch (although I did have cilantro on the side for the tacos), it still turned out wonderfully. My son who normally loves beef said this was his favorite of the night. The ground chicken made it healthier without compromising the taste. I can’t wait to try more recipes from this site. Thank you!

  • I had been wanting to make these tacos since the moment I read your post. Finally got around to it earlier today. They were amazing. Even my “would rather eat beef” boyfriend loved them, as did his mother. All around fantastic! Thank you!!

  • I particularly love the hint about putting the meat in the shells before warming the shells to soften the ‘hinge’! Thanks!

  • Looks amazing! It must be fate. I have ground turkey defrosting for shepard’s pie, but I’ll be making this instead tonight. Taco’s are D’s favorite meal…
