paprika chicken soft tacos by adelle

i took part of a recipe i had and revamped it so this is not an exact recipe... it is one of those meals that you can adjust easily to fit your personal flavor preferences! and depending on how your stove is, you kind of have to adjust the temperature throughout so that the chicken and onions don't get too done before you add the seasonings. just be sure to move all the stuff in the skillet around alot so they don't get stuck to the pan and make those gross crusties (you know what i am talking about right?).

chicken breast tenders
1 medium onion, chopped or sliced
1 garlic clove, chopped
sweet paprika (i use "hungarian paprika 100% sweet delicate by papa imported" but you can use any kind of sweet paprika)
salt & pepper
EVOO (extra virgin olive oil)
tortillas (small or large, just depends on how much you pile inside (o:)

optional toppings:
low fat cheddar cheese or cheddar and monterey
fat free refried beans
chunky salsa or taco sauce

heat large skillet over medium-high heat. add EVOO about 2 Tb. add chicken and let it cook a few minutes on each side. then add onions and garlic. cook all together for a few more minutes until chicken is pretty much done. season with salt and pepper, just a few dashes of each in the pan. then sprinkle the chicken with paprika. stir/shake so all the chicken gets the seasoning. reduce heat to low for a few minutes.

place a small handful of cheese on a tortilla and warm in microwave just enough for cheese to melt. add chicken and any other toppings you'd like, roll up and enjoy!!
