Recipe for the easiest-ever chicken tacos

I had a good friend, Erica, over for dinner last night, and she recommended this recipe.

I didn't have time to roast a chicken, so I bought a nice fresh rotisserie chicken from the grocery store. I've never bought one before, but wow. What a convenient way to get dinner on the table quickly. I think this recipe took eight minutes.

Erica said she and her fiance dress this recipe up with taco fixings, but I didn't have many of those on hand. These were great just with soft tortillas. I never would have used so much dried oregano, but it worked.

Bonus - I stuck the rest of the chicken, bones and all, in the slow cooker this morning with some veggies and herbs and water, and rolled out some homemade whole-wheat noodles last night. If we can't have homemade pizza, at least we'll have delicious chicken and noodles for dinner tonight.
