    Directions

    Heat a large saute pan over medium heat and pour in enough olive oil to coat the bottom of the pan. Add the garlic and onions and cook until soft and nicely caramelized, about 10 to 12 minutes.

    In the meantime, season the chicken with salt and pepper. Sprinkle the flour over the chicken and toss to coat. Heat another large saute pan over medium-high heat and add 3 tablespoons of olive oil. Cook the chicken until it is lightly browned, about 6 to 8 minutes.

    Once the onion mixture is caramelized and softened, add the serranos, paprikas, cumin, and oregano. When the chicken is done, transfer it to the pan with the onions. Pour in the broth or water and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer until the sauce is thick and delicious, approximately 20 minutes. Adjust seasoning with salt and pepper.

    To serve the tacos: Put the toppings and chicken filling in bowls and allow guests to build their own tacos.

      Excellent. I made about 1/4 of the recipe for 2 people. Used almost a whole jalapeno instead to the serrano, but left the seeds and membrane. Nice heat for me. I think Michael is a great chef, I just don't find enough of his recipes that I want to try. Glad I did this one.

      WOW!! This recipe has a real punch of flavor and tastes like something from a restaurant! I cut the recipe in half - using 2 chicken brst. I didn't have serrano chili peppers and smoked paprika - so I used 1 jap and chipotle chili pepper (not much, just enough to give it the smoke flavor. Also added a can of stewed tom (all I had - tore up the tom and added about half of the juice and eye balled the chix stock (about 1/2c. The chicken was SOOO tender - Loved it!!
