Y’all, my husband is amazing. A few nights ago I royally screwed up dinner. I followed an online recipe for lemon pepper chicken word for word, but either the recipe was really awful or I missed something somewhere because it was so salty that it was barely edible. Not wanting to waste food, we saved the leftovers (which was almost all of it) and decided to try and figure out some way to save it the next night. Enter amazing husband and the most delicious mini-tacos ever.
These were so simple to make and pretty quick too! For the taco shells, we used gyoza or pot-sticker wrappers and baked them for about 6 minutes at 400° F until they were crispy. To make sure the shells were wide enough I draped them over two chopsticks, but if you have a pan with wide enough edges you can use that too. Lightly spray them with the oil of your choice so they crisp up instead of just getting dried out.
Next I sauteed half an onion (diced) until it became slightly translucent (1), and added about a third of a cup of frozen corn (2). Once that was heated up nicely, I added the sliced lemon pepper chicken and sauteed until it was heated through (3). When that was all up to temperature I turned off the pan and mixed in about two small to medium sized tomatoes, also diced (4). I added absolutely no seasonings because I knew my disaster chicken would take care of that for me, but if you are making this without having ruined a dinner the night before (haha), you can season your chicken with some lemon pepper and garlic. Just make sure it is already cooked through before you add it to the pan!
That’s it! Load it up and top them with a little bit of green onion. Delish!
Also, sorry for the somewhat poor picture quality. These photos were all taken with my phone because our camera was in my bag in the bedroom…and I wasn’t about to risk waking the baby just for some better quality photos. Know what I mean?
Anyway, make these! And then let me know how they turned out for you. I’d love to hear about it!
