Chicken Taco Salad

IMG_1317Ingredients:

2 chicken breasts (I typically butterfly the chicken into cutlets first and then cut it into smaller nugget- sized pieces. If you prefer, you can cut the chicken straight into pieces).

1 packet of taco seasoning

1/4 cup water

Directions:

  1. Add chicken to a skillet on medium/high. (Our stove has numbers and I typically cook this between 7 and 8.)
  2. Cook the chicken on high for 5 minutes. Next, add 2 tbsp water into the skillet.
  3. Stir in taco seasoning. Then, add 2 tbsp water into the skillet.
  4. Chicken is fully-cooked when a meat thermometer registers at 165Β°.

Toppings to add to your salad: diced tomatoes, avocado, light cheese, and dressing of choice. I typically use Primal Kitchen Ranch.
