Chicken Tacos

This is what we had for lunch today. I used some leftover Za' atar Chicken. Robyn a friend of mine wanted some different seasonings, so I sent her some za' atar that I had blended. She used it on chicken the day she got it and told me that it was a big hit with her family. I like to cook a lot of chicken up for sandwiches, wraps or quesadillas. I had the za' atar seasoning on my mind. So that is what I used, and it tasted pretty good in the tacos.

I like soft corn tortillas. I soften them with a touch of canola oil in a small frying pan. I love Parmesan cheese added for just long enough to stick to it without burning. Fill your taco shell with the chicken, white Mexican cheese, lettuce and verde sauce. (recipe to follow) Maranda like s to make hers with the flour tortillas, and she adds tomatoes. So Robyn, here is one for you! Thanks for all your help!

Salsa Verde

1 1/2 lbs tomatillos (boiled or roasted)

1/2 C chopped onions

1/2 C cilantro

2 cloves garlic

1 T fresh lime juice

2 serrano peppers (stemmed, seeded, and chopped)

1/4 tsp sugar

1 tsp salt

Remove the husks from tomatillos and rinse well. Place in sauce pan and cover with water and boil, then simmer for 5 minutes. Remove and let cool enough to handle. Place tomatillos, with remaining ingredients in food processor or blender and pulse until mixed and chopped well. If you like a thinner consistency add a little water. Cool in refigerator. Can serve with chips too.
