Ground Chicken Taco’s
This is an easy way to switch up your weekly taco dinner. Instead of using the usual ground beef I will just use ground chicken instead.
1 pound lean ground chicken
Corn tortillas- I usually make 3 per adult and 1-2 per child
Garnishes- We used jack cheese, lettuce, tomato, onion, avocado, and some taco sauce.
Feel free to add some taco seasoning from my ground beef taco recipe too. 2-3 TBSP. is how I like it.
In a frying pan cook your ground chicken. If you are going to make the rice and beans I would start them ahead especially the beans. Start the beans about 45 minutes before you plan to be eating dinner and then start the rice. Fry your tortillas- In a small frying pan heat a half inch of vegetable oil and once oil is heated add a tortilla, once I bubbles flip and cook on other side about 3-5 seconds. Transfer tortilla to a plate lined with a paper towel and pat with a paper towel to soak excess oil. Chop your garnishes.
Once all ingredients are cooked build your tacos. I made mine in this order- tortilla, rice, beans, chicken, lettuce, tomato, onions, avocado, and cheese. Add cilantro too for extra flavor.
I served this with my cilantro brown rice and pressure cooked black beans
Enjoy these Ground Chicken Taco’s!
