In this recipe, a savory-sweet taco filling is encased in warm flour tortillas.
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 pound skinless, boneless chicken breast, cut into bite-sized pieces
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 tablespoon butter
2 cups thinly sliced onion
2 cups thinly sliced peeled Granny Smith apple (about 2 apples)
2 garlic cloves, minced
8 (6-inch) flour tortillas
How to Make It
Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Sprinkle the chicken evenly with salt, nutmeg, and pepper. Add chicken to pan; sauté 7 minutes or until golden. Remove the chicken from pan; keep warm.
Melt butter in pan over medium heat. Add onion; cook 4 minutes or until tender, stirring frequently. Add apple; cook 6 minutes or until golden, stirring frequently. Add garlic; cook 30 seconds, stirring constantly. Return chicken to pan; cook 2 minutes or until thoroughly heated, stirring frequently.
Heat tortillas according to package directions. Arrange 1/2 cup chicken mixture evenly over each tortilla.
loved these! used homemade jerk seasoning, topped with nutmeg on chicken. served with radish slices, green pepper and jack cheese. pepper jack would work too. added salt and pepper to onion and apple mixture. will make again.
Very easy to make. I used a Gala apple because that's what's growing on my trees. Very delicious. Because some people commented on the bland color, I add a little orange pepper and a deseeded jalapeno pepper. They made it more colorful but they were unnecessary.
I have made this since it came out in CL in 2003. One of my go to recipes for sure, the kids even love this. Tonight I sauteed the chicken in coconut oil, as I was out of olive. Should have done a 1/2 Tbs, but it turned out more flavorful than it does with olive oil. Also, I add a little fresh grated nutmeg to the apples and onions before adding the chicken. The only other change is that we put a tsp of light sour cream on top. Again, not huge changes, but again we love the flavor. For me the more nutmeg the better.
