cooking in the rowan apartments

1. Find friends and invite them over.

2. Heat a nonstick pan over a medium heat.

3. Place seasoned chicken cutlets onto the pan and let each side cook for about 4-5 mins per side (internal temp for chicken should be
165 degrees), until you see the bottom lightly browning.

4. Read and follow the taco seasoning directions. Once chicken is almost ready, lower the heat and add in the taco seasoning.

5. While the chicken is saturating in the taco mix, dice your tomato and onion, and throw them into a bowl.

6. Chop your lettuce and throw that into a separate bowl.homemade tacos by rowan students

7. Mash up your avocado into a different bowl, squeeze lemon into the bowl, season with salt and pepper (if you’re feeling fancy, add cilantro).

8. Place chicken into a secluded bowl.

9. Set your table with the food, fill your taco, and dig in!

10. Make your friends do the dishes, since you cooked the entire meal.
