Directions

  1. Combine tomatoes, red onion; cilantro; 1/8 teaspoon salt, and the sugar. Mix well. Cover; chill for several hours or overnight.
  2. Cut chicken breast halves into 3/4-inch-wide strips. Combine black pepper, paprika, dry mustard, red pepper, and 1/4 teaspoon salt in a plastic bag. Add chicken to the bag, shaking to coat. Arrange coated chicken in a single layer in a shallow baking pan. Bake, uncovered, in a 350 degrees F oven for 15 to 20 minutes or until chicken is tender and no longer pink. Using two forks, pull chicken apart into pieces.
  3. To crisp taco shells, arrange on a baking sheet and bake 5 to 7 minutes or until warm and crisp. Serve chicken in taco shells. Top tacos with Pico de Gallo, spinach or lettuce, cheddar or Monterey Jack Cheese, and sour cream and/or guacamole. Makes 24.

From the Test Kitchen

If desired, omit the Pico de Gallo and substitute bottled chunky salsa.

Up to 24 hours ahead, prepare the Pico de Gallo; cover and chill.
