I am so excited to share the new Taste of Home book with you! Although I was given a complimentary copy all of my opinions are mine. This is one of the most family friendly cook books that I have seen, and I love it for so many reasons. This book is not only packed with recipes but it’s full of ideas about how to bring the family back together around the table. Lots of great ideas for starting conversations or removing distractions all around a busy family schedule. This week I am sharing three recipes from the book from three different categories and I’ll talk more about the benefits of this terrific book. The recipe I’m sharing today is from the CHICKEN AND TURKEY category. It’s also a Fast Fix. This category is a great place to find dinner ideas for those crazy weeknight meals. I chose the Thai Chicken Tacos to make and share with you. These were fabulous, we loved the flavor combination with the peanut sauce and the fresh vegetables on top. Although this recipe said it served six my rotisserie chicken gave me a little less than six servings, I would buy two rotisseries next time as we loved it that much! On to the recipe!
NOTE- we used both hard and soft taco shells
