  • 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts

  • 1 packet taco seasoning
  • 1 cup diced tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup diced onions
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 8 small tortillas
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Start by seasoning the chicken breasts with salt, pepper, and half of the taco seasoning.
  2. Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chicken breasts and cook until they are no longer pink in the center, about 5-7 minutes per side. Remove from the skillet and let them rest for a few minutes before slicing into strips.
  3. In the same skillet, add the diced onions and cook until they become translucent. Then, add the diced tomatoes and the remaining taco seasoning. Cook for another 2-3 minutes until the tomatoes soften.
  4. Warm the tortillas in the skillet or microwave until they are soft and pliable.
  5. Assemble your tacos by placing a few strips of the cooked chicken on each tortilla, followed by the tomato and onion mixture. Top with shredded cheddar cheese.
  6. Serve your Weeknight Chicken Tacos with your favorite toppings like salsa, sour cream, and guacamole.
