Lettuce Wrapped Chicken Tacos

My recipes are grain free, refined sugar free and most are dairy free. Summertime heat makes me want to make lots of salads.  If you have been following my journey then you know that I am on a journey to find my health and energy. I have been progressing nicely since I started in Oct of 2017. It has made me rethink the way I eat and write recipes.

I had a friend recently tell me that I should have started my blog 20 years ago. I don’t even know if people were blogging then. But, I thought it was a nice compliment. Of course, my food would have been different then. For years I have been writing down my recipes to hand down to my children. Some of them I have already revamped. Many of the ones on my blog are new to me. Recipe writing has been a hobby of mine for years. I like the artistic ability to create something new and tasty. I feel honored that anyone follows my blog. I want you to thank you all for that.

This recipe was created for summertime when it is so hot you don’t feel like eating. Sometimes we don’t eat until late as the temperature falls. You can make the meat ahead of time. You can use other vegetables as well. Whatever you prefer. Maybe even open up a can of black beans and add to the tacos. Super easy and delicious.

Nutritional Facts are based on one lettuce wrapped taco. It makes approximately 20 lettuce tacos. Go to Creamy Tex Mex Dressing to find the Nutritional Facts based on one teaspoon per serving. I found about 3 to be the perfect serving.

2 lbs chicken breasts

3 tablespoons Keto Taco Seasoning

1 teaspoon salt

1 cup chopped onion

1 cup chopped bell peppers

1 minced clove of garlic

1 head of butter bibb lettuce

2 small baby cucumbers cut into matchsticks

3-4 sliced radishes

2 tablespoons cilantro

1/2 cup Pico De Gallo Salsa or store bought

1/2 cup shredded white cheddar

1/4 cup Creamy Tex-Mex Dressing

2 tablespoons avocado oil

sour cream

slices of lime

 

Cut chicken up into bite-sized pieces. Combine chopped onions, chopped bell peppers and cut up chicken. Place a deep frying pan or chicken fryer on the stove on medium heat. When the pan is hot add chicken and vegetables, minced garlic, taco seasoning, and salt stir until well combined. While the chicken is cooking cut up the radishes and cut cucumbers into matchsticks. Once the chicken is cooked remove from heat. Take the bibb lettuce and remove the lettuce leaves and wash them off under cool water. Blot lettuce dry with paper towels. Make lettuce wraps. Place 1 to 2 tablespoons of cooked taco chicken meat and place on top of one lettuce leaf. On top of the chicken add a little shredded cheese, homemade salsa, slices of radishes, a couple of cucumber matchsticks, sour cream, creamy Tex-Mex Dressing and top with a cilantro leaf and a slice of lime. Make a whole platter of Lettuce Wrapped Chicken Tacos.

To eat squeeze lime juice onto taco and wrap up and much down.
