Anna's Family Kitchen was inspired by my love of food and desire to feed my family healthy, home cooked wholesome meals that are beautifully presented and appealing but don’t require hours of prep in the kitchen.

Mix and Match Chicken Tacos

Not only very simple & quick to prep, Tacos are extremely versatile. My middle child doesn’t like fresh tomatoes, only cooked (I know! Odd!) Youngest Finn won’t eat avocado….Does anyone relate? Tacos are a brilliant mix & match family sharing meal. Simple and everyone is happy!

Serves: 4

Prep: 5 minutes
Cooking: 10 minutes
Total: 12 minutes

Difficulty: easy



800g chicken breasts or thighs
2 garlic cloves crushed
2 tbsp olive oil
2 tsp chilli powder
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp smoked paprika
1 tsp dried oregano
1/2 tsp salt & pepper

12 Tortillas

Suggestions for the mix & match toppings:-
Diced tomatoes
Diced avocado
Diced pepper
Sweet corn
Lime quarters
Grated cheddar
Sour cream, mayo or Greek yog

Combine all the ingredients. If using chicken breasts bash them out using a rolling pin so they’re half their thickness. Cut the thighs or breasts in half.

Get a pan or griddle searing hot & cook the chicken for 3 minutes each side.

Prepare all your toppings.

Warm the tortillas either in a hot oven or in a dry pan.

Load up the tortillas & let everyone put their finishing touches to their own
