When I find myself taking the easy way out of making dinner by picking up a roast chicken at the market, I try to make up for it by making the leftover chicken taste like something new. This recipe totally works for me. The only thing I add is a big squeeze of lime juice. My husband likes to put sour cream on his, but that's just how he rolls. Oh, and I heat up the tortillas.

These are so easy and need to go into the regular rotation. A great use for left over chicken.

Excellent use of a leftover half rotisserie chicken. Thanks!

I love this! It's easy & bursting with flavor. Everybody should try it.

Great use of leftover chicken, and something I've been doing for years, using taco seasoning. I wanted to see how I liked this spice combination, so made it as written, but found it incomplete. With cumin and maybe some paprika, this will be 5 stars.

This is the first time I've had chicken soft tacos. It had a nice flavor to it. I might fix this again but probably doctor it up a bit more.

This was quick &easy, but can easily be made w/your own bbq or roasted chicken, breast or whole. Also, I prefer them on corn tortillas,pan fry them in Pam to soften or heat in a ziplock Baggie in the micro for 15-20 sec. Squeeze a little lime juice on them and add cilantro & mini-diced onion for garnish.

I've made this exactly as written. Very quick and easy to make, this recipe can be tweaked easily to suit your tastes. I gave a 4 star because I thought it could use more spice with the chicken, maybe cumin. Otherwise, this is a keeper for us. Next time I might add a touch of guacamole and/or sour cream, just for variety; otherwise, it is good as is.
