Tacos are one of the tastiest, easiest and quickest weeknight dinners when you want something versatile that the whole family will love.

To start making the chicken tacos we begin by seasoning the boneless skinless chicken breasts or thighs. I seasoned mine with my homemade taco seasoning which is super easy to make if you don’t have packet seasoning on hand.

After you finish seasoning the chicken, heat some olive oil in a large pan and cook on both sides until done. Next, shred the chicken or chop into cubes.

Warm up your tortillas in a toaster oven or on the stovetop over the flame.

Add the chicken, cheese, tomato, sour cream, lettuce, corn, and beans on top of your tacos. I used canned black beans and corn for these tacos. I just drained them and heated them up in the pan for about 30 seconds to 1 minute then served them on top of the chicken tacos.
