Quick Grilled Chicken Soft Tacos Ole'

Ah, with the slightest hint of warm weather fun it's Grilled Chicken Taco Time!

This can be thrown together in a matter of minutes and prep can take place even the day before for a really on the fly but good for you dinner for all.

Here's what you need:

Taco size corn tortillas
4 Skinless Chicken Breasts
1 tspn grilled chicken seasoning
1 Avocado
1 Jar of your favorite Salsa
1/2 Lb graded Cheddar Cheese
Lettuce (optional)

Prep: about 10 minutes
Cook: about 11 minutes

Here's what you do:

Take clean, lightly seasoned (grilled chicken seasoning) whole chicken breasts and toss on your Outdoor Grill, George Foreman Grill, or in your Broiler for about 6 minutes on side one and another 5 on side two until cooked through.
Remove from grill and set aside to cool slightly.
while chicken cools, grate your cheese, or for another time saver use pre-grated cheese from your favorite market.
Steam your torillas for a few minutes to soften-I use a shallow pot with a steamer basket.
Slice the avocado into chunks, and chop your lettuce if using.
Now, back to your grilled chicken, cut the breasts into 1 inch cubes.
Now you're ready to assemble!
Set all the ingredients out in separate bowls to allow your family to build their own fun.
Pile the ingredients to your liking in double tortillas for a sturdy meal, top with salsa and you are ready to go!
Add a side of black or vegetarian refried beans for good measure. Ole'
