  1. Boil chicken breasts for 20 minutes or until they are thoroughly cooked. Drain breasts well and let cool. Use an electric food processor or manually shred the chicken and set aside.
  2. Use an electric food processor or blender to puree the olives. In a mixing bowl, combine salsa, olives, and chicken. Heat tortillas in microwave for about 20 to 30 seconds.
  3. Place 1 to 2 tablespoons of the chicken mixture into the center of each warmed tortilla and roll the tortillas tightly, using toothpicks to keep them closed.
  4. Heat oil in skillet over a high heat. When the oil is hot, place the rolled taco into the oil and deep fry until lightly browned. Drain on paper towels and serve.

Very yummy. I mixed in some green chilies and a little cheese. I folded them like mini burritos to keep the cheese in. I served with Mexican rice and sour cream. This recipe really makes a lot. I still had leftovers after using the entire package of tortillas so I will make some quesadillas with the leftovers. Thanks for the quick easy recipe!

Yummy! My whole family (husband and kids, ages 5 & 3) loved these. They didn't take too long and were VERY easy. My husband said the only thing they were missing was some sour cream (we ate them with no toppings).

Added some cheese and baked not fried. 3 kids = 6 thumbs up !!

I gave this five stars because it was surprisingly good for such a simple recipe. We added sour cream and salsa as toppings. Will make again for sure.

I sprinkled the mixture with a little garlic salt, added some cheese, then folded them like Chimichangas and grilled them.
