Home / Chicken / Easy Baked Chicken Tacos

These oven baked chicken tacos are quick and easy. Using rotisserie or leftover chicken makes this the perfect fast weeknight family dinner!

Prep Time 10 minutes | Cook Time 20 minutes | Total Time 30 minutes



  • 2 cups cooked chicken shredded
  • 1 cup salsa
  • 10 hard taco shells
  • 1 cup shredded cheese (e.g. Tex-Mex blend or cheddar)
  • Optional toppings: sour cream, tomatoes, onions, avocado, etc.


  1. Preheat oven to 375F. Move the rack to the middle position.
  2. Add the chicken and salsa to a bowl. Stir until it’s combined.
  3. Place your taco shells in a baking dish (mine was 9×13). I bought the flat bottom taco shells to make this easier. Spoon the chicken mixture equally into each taco and then sprinkle the cheese over top.
  4. Bake for 10-15 minutes or until the cheese is melted and the tacos are heated through. Check around the 10 minute mark to make sure the tacos don’t start to burn. 
  5. Meanwhile, prep your toppings.
  6. Top tacos as desired and enjoy while they’re still warm.
