Chicken Tacos... Not for Me...

Tonight I made these deliciously smelling, mouth watering, chicken tacos. I piled them high with fresh lettuce, tomatoes, sour cream... the works. I finally sat down to enjoy my hard work, took one bite, and ran to the bathroom! Apparently, due to my pregnancy, chicken is out, but I thought I would post the recipe. They apparently tasted fabulous to everyone but me! 

Chicken Tacos

1.5 lbs chicken tenders or breasts
1 packet taco seasoning
1/2 medium onion sliced
1 T butter
chili powder
garlic powder
tortillas (I use wheat) 
all the toppings... lettuce, tomatoes, sour cream, cheese, salsa

Place the chicken in a stock pot and cover with water. Add a couple of tablespoons of chili powder, cumin, and garlic powder ( I honestly didn't measure, I would guess about 2 T of each). Boil on high, until chicken is cooked through, about 20 minutes for tenders and 30-40 for breasts. Drain water and shred chicken. Melt butter in skillet and sauté onions until tender. Add chicken, taco seasoning, and 1/2 cup of water. Cook until well seasoned, and water is absorbed, about 10 minutes. Remove from heat and pile on the tortillas along with the toppings!
