Chicken Taco Boats

Lately we've been working on phasing out starchy & grain-based carbs from our dinners. It's surprising how little we miss them.

For dinner the other night we made chicken tacos. Honestly, I love corn tortillas, but they weren't even needed. And I didn't feel like I was being "healthy" if you know what I mean. It was the perfect little indulgent pick me up that didn't ruin our "diet."

I actually used a new recipe I found on Pinterest from Repeat Crafter Me for Crock Pot Ranch Chicken. It's super easy, made in the crockpot & literally uses only 4 ingredients.

Check out their site that I linked for the super easy recipe.

After I had the chicken prepped, I just washed some hearts of Romaine lettuce, & doubled each lettuce leaf up for extra support. Then you just add your toppings. On ours I did homemade pinto beans, quesadilla cheese, shredded chicken, sour cream, & diced tomatoes.

After which, you just pick it up & eat it like you would a normal taco. Super simple!! We might try this for our normal ground beef taco recipes too!

  1. Hi Lexi,

    The recipe seems delicious, and I will try this at home for my wife. My wife and I always love to eat good and healthy food because eating good food is always the best way to keep good health.

    The recipe is so simple and easy. I want to ask that can I sprinkle moringa powder on this?

    Actually, my wife is suffering from diabetes, and we both are using moringa leaf powder for the last six months because this is very good for diabetes patients and also reduces joint inflammation.

    If you haven't read about moringa yet, let me tell you that this plant is also known as the miracle tree because it contains healthful compounds.

    Moringa powder has more calcium than milk.

    More iron than spinach.

    More vitamins A than carrots.

    In short, this food has loads of healthful compounds and also suitable for a lot of health diseases.

    I'm requesting, If you have some moringa recipes, please do share with us in your next post.

    Anyhow, thank you, Lexi, for running a great blog. I wish you loads of success and happiness.
