This is a super quick dish that can be used so many ways. I have made tacos, burritos, salads, quesadillas, nachos, and tostadas with this versatile chicken dish. My family likes it any way I make it. I love that I can make it ahead and freeze it for later, or just portion it out for quick lunches through the week. If I have leftovers, I mix some brown rice with it, top it with cheese and bake it in the oven for a round two casserole.
