Raising four little boys, I know how important a solid nutritious meal is for my family. I am always on the lookout for simple and healthy meals that my whole family can enjoy. So, I thought I would take a moment to share one of my children’s favorite meals and something we can all agree on – Chicken Tacos!
How to Make Chicken Tacos
Chicken Tacos are one of the easiest weeknight meals you can prepare! We make tacos nearly weekly as they are so simple and are a healthy option that even the pickiest family members don’t complain about! Here’s how we make our chicken tacos.
Dice up your fresh chicken breast or tenderloins into bite sized pieces. Add the chicken to a skillet and sprinkle with pepper. When the chicken is cooked almost all the way through, add taco seasoning as per package directions or make your own homemade taco seasoning mix. Be sure you add the water the packet calls for or even a bit extra as it will give you a bit of a taco sauce. Cook through and then reduce heat to low and let simmer until you are ready to serve.
Dice up a tomato and an onion. Prepare fresh cilantro and spinach as well by coarsely chopping it. Grate 1 cup of cheese. Warm flour tortillas on your stove top with a dry, clean skillet for 20-30 seconds per side. You’re now ready to enjoy! Just assemble your tacos adding in each family members preferences.
