Dinner Tonight: BBQ Baked Chicken Tacos


I've said it a hundred times...my Spinach Pesto Baked Tacos are a staple around our house.  They are just so easy and so yummy, that we tend to eat them a lot.  The other day, Andrew asked me if I could make a BBQ Chicken version...um, hello?  I am the Mix and Match Mama for a reason...


Shopping List
1 pound cooked and shredded chicken breast (click here to see how I get my chicken)
1 1/2 cups of your favorite BBQ sauce
10 to 12 green onions, chopped
2 cups Monterey Jack cheese, shredded
5 taco shells (I used the "stand and stuff" ones...but regular will work)


Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

In a large bowl, combine your cooked and shredded chicken with BBQ sauce and green onions.  Set aside.

Take an 8x8 inch baking dish sprayed with cooking spray and line your 5 taco shells up.  Divide the chicken mixture between all 5 shells.  Top tacos with cheese and pop dish in the oven.  Bake about 10 minutes or until the cheese is bubbly and brown.


This was such a fun twist on a basic weeknight dinner!  Thank you sweet Andrew for the suggestion!  XOXO

Do your kids eat these? My kids would probably eat them in a soft shell but they aren't too good with crunchy ones! They are 4 & 3 :0)

I had this same idea as a take off BBQ chicken pizza after the spicy baked chicken tacos became a fav in our house- but I was too scared to make something up on my own. Thanks so much for the recipe, we'll be making soon! :)

Great minds think alike...almost! Chicken tacos are on our menu for tonight as well, but I'm doing mine in the crockpot {of course I saw it on Pinterest}. I'm going to try your version next time! Thanks for sharing!

This is a wonderful recipe that brings together two of our favorites- tacos and BBQ chicken. This will be on the menu for next week!

Think I could sneak a box of spinach into this one, too, or would the flavors be off?

Aileen said...

I made these this week and my husband and I both loved them!!! So easy and delicious!

Hi Shay! The first time I made these, my hubby wasn't a huge fan of the bbq sauce with the taco shell - so the next time I "mix and matched" it and put the chicken/onions/bbq sauce mixture on top of a store bought pizza crust and made bbq chicken pizza - it was divine! :)

I made these for dinner tonight and they were so good! I pre-cooked my chicken in the crock pot per your suggestion on your "perfect chicken" post. It was a quick yet tasty meal. Thanks!
