Save Money and Make Your Own Fast-Food-Type Chicken Soft Tacos
by Monica Resinger, http://homemakersjournal.com

I love Taco Time's chicken soft tacos, but because money is tight, I can't go out to eat as much as I'd like. So, I created my own chicken soft tacos and they taste very close to Taco Time's version. I save a significant amount of money by making my own, not to mention the time and gas to get there. Here's my recipe.

Chicken Soft Tacos
Serves 4+

4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
Cooking oil
Seasoning salt
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
Shredded lettuce
8 flour tortillas
Ranch salad dressing
Hot sauce (if you have extra little packets of Taco Time hot sauce, that really makes these like Taco Time's!)

Preheat oven to 350º. Place the chicken breasts on a baking sheet, drizzle with oil, then sprinkle with seasoning salt and cumin. Bake for 20-30 minutes or until done.

Meanwhile, place the cheese and lettuce in serving bowls and heat the tortillas in the microwave for 1-2 minutes.

When the chicken is done, cut into bite size pieces and place in a serving bowl.

To make a soft taco, place a little shredded lettuce on a heated tortilla and top with ranch dressing and hot sauce to taste; place shredded cheese and cooked chicken on top of lettuce, then roll the tortilla burrito style (fold in top or bottom, then roll up from side to side).
