Reviews for Presto Chicken Tacos
"I thought this was missing something...not too much flavor. Everyone else thought they were fine, though. Easy to do and I usually have everything on hand is a plus."
"This was good, but I do think it was missing something. Maybe changing the diced tomatoes for salsa would add the extra flare it needed."
"Fast, easy and so tasty!"
"The filling is too dry and the Tortilla's need to be fried to a crispy finish to have any flavour."
"I thought these were just ok. I've had chicken tacos seasoned differently that were much tastier."
"This was good, but the chicken turned out rather tough. It did not travel well as leftovers for lunch."
