Chicken Tacos

These healthy chicken tacos are not only easy to make, but they taste so good!

Let’s get one thing straight, there aren’t many chicken tacos that I’ve come across that I don’t like. So I might be a little biased. My go-to tacos are usually topped with ground chicken, red cabbage or lettuce, cilantro, onions, jalapenos, lime, and salsa. But I’m all for mixing it up once in awhile!

These simple chicken tacos taste like delicious comfort food, but they have only 248 calories and 6 grams of fat per serving! For added flavor, check out this fresh Pico de Gallo recipe or this tasty Peach and Jalapeño Salsa recipe.
