Back to the wrap - Chicken Soft Tacos with Sauteed Onions and Apples

It's apple season, and I had two granny smiths left from a trip to the farmer's market. I'd done the sweet; time for the savory.

I've worked with this kind of recipe before, but it was before I was tracking my recipes, so I don't remember what the actual recipe was. Digression aside, this was a nice recipe. I decided to go with 4 larger tortillas instead of 8 small. Unfortunately, the amount of filling made it hard to wrap, so the picture was not taken for this entry. But I decided to try something new this time; I filled the tortillas, wrapped in foil, and froze 2 of them. We'll see how well they come out of the freezer.

This recipe I'd say is a solid 6 or 7. Final rating is on hold, until I am able to try it as leftovers (co-workers dragged me to Vietnamese for lunch the day I was going to eat it).
