Ingredients

  • 1 lb ground chicken
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 2 teaspoons cumin
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon garlic salt
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ¼ teaspoon onion powder
  • ¼ teaspoon paprika
  • ¼ teaspoon coriander
  • ¼ teaspoon dried oregano
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • ½ cup chicken broth
  • 12 corn taco shells
  • 1-2 cups shredded cheese

Instructions

  • Heat oven to 400 degrees. Combine all the spices into a small bowl so they are ready to go when needed (this makes it much easier!). If wanted, you can substitute all the spices/seasonings with a packet of chicken taco seasoning or taco seasoning. 
  • Cook olive oil and ground chicken in a skillet pan over medium-high heat and cook until no longer pink. Crumble and break up the chicken as it cooks. Drain if needed (ground chicken does produce some liquid. Like water). 
  • Add the seasonings and chicken broth. Stir together and let it simmer for 2-3 minutes until liquid is absorbed. 
  • Arrange the 12 corn tortillas in a 9x13 baking dish. Divide the ground chicken mixture evenly between the 12 tortillas. Add shredded cheese to each taco. Cook for 6-8 minutes or until desired crispiness. 
  • Sprinkle with chopped cilantro (if wanted) and top with all your favorite taco toppings. 

Notes

I know the recipe ingredients look long but most of it is just measuring out the spices. Once you do that, this recipe comes together really quickly. Measure out the spices beforehand and then when it's time to add them it's much easier because you just dump them all in. 
 
My favorite kitchen tool is this meat chopper (affiliate). It crumbles up ground meats so well. I could not live without one!
 
The ground chicken mixture is very versatile. If you want more of a tomato base then use tomato sauce instead of chicken broth. Add a can of refried beans or canned beans to the ground chicken. You could even add a can of drained diced tomatoes or corn.
