Instructions
Prepare Chicken
  1. If the chicken has the thin tenderloins attached, cut them off. They will cook a lot faster than the thicker breast pieces.
  2. Poke chicken all over with a fork to tenderize them. Sprinkle with paprika and chili powder.

  3. Cook to an internal temperature of 165 F.
  4. Let the chicken cool and then shred it.
Assemble the dish
  1. Warm the tortillas. We wrap them in a kitchen towel and microwave them for 1 minute. You can also heat them individually in a skillet or over a gas stove burner.
