I don’t buy ground chicken very often, but I had some in the freezer that I needed to use up soon. So I decided to try out some recipe testing and make crispy, salsa verde ground chicken tacos. They turned out absolutely delicious! Once thing about ground chicken is that it needs to be seasoned really well and these tacos turned out so flavorful. I loved this on regular flour tortillas, but I bet they would be just as delicious on corn tortillas, hard taco shells, or even over rice. I think avocado, sour cream, cilantro, and/or lettuce would all be great additions as well, but I did not have any of that on hand. I definitely will be making these again!
