Here’s the procedure:
- 1/2 pound cooked shredded chicken breast
- 1 onion – cut into thin slices
- 2 cloves garlic-Minced
- 1 teaspoon (5ml) Worcestershire
- Salt & Pepper
- 1 Tablespoon cooking oil
- Vegetable oil
- 12 corn tortillas
- Sour cream or fresh salsa
Heat the saucepan to medium heat and pour one tablespoonful of oil. Add the thin slices of onions and garlic, and limit the amount of garlic depending on the desired taste and flavor. Cook while stirring until the onions are soft and crystalline.
Add the shredded chicken and the Worcestershire or soy sauce. Stir as you cook and cook for about two minutes to combine the mixture thoroughly. Add salt and pepper and allow to cool off.
Now it’s time to roll and fry your tacos. Foremost make the slices thin and consistent enough. When you put too much chicken, this will stick out at the edges and burn when frying.
Add oil to about 1.5 inches deep and fry in a large frying pan. Heat the oil until hot enough or 350 degrees F. This way, the tortilla pieces will sizzle when dropped in the hot oil.
Soften the tortillas by grabbing two at a time with tongs and dip them for some seconds in hot oil. Don’t dip for too long; otherwise, they will break apart. Lay them gently in a paper towel and pile them in one stack.
Put two tablespoonfuls of chicken filling in a line across the bottom of the tortillas and cool them up tightly. Skewer with toothpicks to close them. Lastly, fry them in hot oil until golden. This will take about one to two minutes. Remember to turn the tacos over to fry both sides.
Blot your tacos in a paper towel to get rid of the excess oil. Serve immediately with sour cream, guacamole, or fresh salsa.
The bottom line
Rolled-up chicken tacos are fun and filling, and kids love them a lot. You can make them with corn tortillas or flour tortillas and enjoy these chicken-filled delicacies of all times.
