Super Quick & Easy Chicken Tacos

It was a gorgeous bright and sunny day here today and it got up to 61 degrees. The forecast for this weekend, though, is for it to be really cold with highs only in the 40s with possible flurries. I decided since it was so nice out today that we would do our Costco run this evening after work. After we made a couple of other stops, we realized it was almost 8:30 pm and we still hadn't eaten dinner yet. So, we stopped and picked up a rotisserie chicken and planned to have that with a salad for a quick meal. When I remembered I had a big beautiful head of bibb lettuce in the fridge (which has big beautiful soft round leaves), I decided to make some really quick shredded chicken tacos. I laid the lettuce leaves out flat on the counter, hand tore some chunks of chicken breast and placed them on the lettuce, shredded some white cheddar cheese on top and spooned on some fresh salsa and sour cream and then topped with some fresh diced avocado...folded them in half...and BOOM..."Super Quick & Easy Chicken Tacos". We were eating dinner 15 minutes after we got home. Talk about fast food! They were awesome. I snapped a few photos for you to see. Enjoy!

Haha! I'm laughing at your freezing cold at 40, here in the UP of MI it is a heat wave this time of year!!!

Great idea using the lettuce leaves for taco shells, i guess I'm not good at looking outside the box would never thought to do this.

Too funny, Paula! Our temperature swings have been drastic this winter for some reason -- we will have 70 for a few days (unseasonably warm)...and then 30 degrees all of a sudden (unseasonably cold). There is no right way to dress! :-)
