There's a meme making the rounds that has a picture of four foods asking the question “which would you give up?” The four foods are tacos, sushi, donuts and bacon. Those happen to all be things I love but suggesting someone from San Antonio give up tacos is…well, crazy. Today, I'm sharing my easy recipe for baked chicken tacos. Have you ever baked your crunchy tacos in the oven? If not, you should try it because this is not only delicious, it's an easy weeknight meal for the insanely busy family.

Also, I'm going to miss those California rolls because donuts and bacon are right up there with tacos in my book.
These baked chicken tacos can be made with ingredients you have on hand and you can get them on the table quickly.
I buy all of my chicken from Zaycon Fresh. I know that sounds like a super futuristic name but it’s really just how I save money on meats fresh from the farm and eliminate the middle man. Plus, I stock up my freezer a few times a year and it makes meal planning easier.
