These crispy chicken tacos have become a family favorite. With a two and three year old in the house, you bet we are always stocked on frozen crispy chicken strips. I’ll toss some in for the kids and then I try and repurpose the chicken for myself in a delicious and different way… hello, crispy chicken tacos.
These are absolutely delicious. Parent and kid friendly. But, so stinkin’ easy to make. The slaw on top is light and refreshing. It is a simple meal to make and enjoy all summer long!
