These low carb chicken tacos are surprisingly good, you won’t even miss the tortillas!
Lately we’ve been working on phasing out some unnecessary carbs from our dinners. It’s surprising how little we miss them.
For example, for dinner the other night we made chicken tacos. And while I love corn tortillas, they weren’t even needed. Eventhough this recipe was slightly healthier, it was the perfect little indulgent pick me up that didn’t ruin our “diet.”
How to make low carb chicken tacos:
For this recipe I literally just used pre-made rotisserie chicken which meant this recipe came together very quickly.
In a pan, I combined my chicken that I shredded with some taco seasoning, chicken bouillon powder, and a little water. You can easily replace this with your own favorite seasoned chicken recipe as well.
After I had the chicken prepped, I just washed some hearts of Romaine lettuce, & doubled each lettuce leaf up for extra support. And then I added the toppings and ate it.
On ours I did homemade pinto beans, quesadilla cheese, shredded chicken mixture, sour cream, & some fresh pico. Salsa would be a great addition to this if you have some.
I hope you enjoy these super simple low carb chicken tacos. They are definitely a favorite at our house.

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.
