Chicken Tacos

We are such the taco loving family!

I really think we could eat them every night of the week.

These tacos came from an amazing source! It came from e-mealz. If you have never heard of e-mealz,

it is a wonderful meal planning website & I highly recommend using it.

It’s fantastic for families on a budget & you get to cook things you normally wouldn’t.

Expand your palate!

When we first made these tacos, I have to admit that the sauce sounded a little

odd but trust me when I say it’s good. There are two versions, a “healthier” choice & one with real bacon. ha!

The picture above doesn’t show feta cheese because my family didn’t save me any.

I had to make do with shredded cheese.. 😦


3 chicken breast (if you have a larger family, add a couple extra)

1 head of lettuce

1 package of turkey bacon or regular bacon

feta cheese

pack of tortillas

cayenne pepper

ground coriander

garlic salt

ground cumin

1/2 cup ranch dressing

2 tablespoons Italian dressing

olive oil

Start by wash your chicken breast & lining on a paper towel to drain extra moisture. Start seasoning skin side up.

Sprinkle cayenne, coriander, garlic salt & cumin lightly on each side. Skin side should now be facing down.

The chicken needs to rest for about 10 minutes to absorb all the flavors.

While waiting mix ranch & Italian dressing together in a bowl & set aside.

Peel first layer off the head of lettuce & chop. Pieces should be relatively small.

Wash lettuce using a salad spinner or strainer.

Fry up your bacon. Afterwards chop into tiny bite sizes.

In large pan place about a table spoon of olive oil. Heat pan on medium to high heat.  To sear the chicken,

the oil has to be pretty hot so don’t get too antsy. You’ll know when the pan is ready because there will be a little smoke.

Put the chicken in skin side down. Once the chicken is browned, flip. You will not cook your chicken all the way through,

just sear it & remove from the pan. Chop your chicken into bite size pieces & place back into heated pan to finish cooking on medium heat.

Heat tortillas by pan or microwave – which ever is easiest for you.

Fill tortillas with chicken, lettuce, bacon & feta topped with sauce.
