{chicken tacos}

Couldn't wait to share this delicious dinner idea with you! After my husband ate it the other night he told me it was the closest he's had to the taste of an authentic Mexican taco since we went last year!
What makes this recipe even better is that there is almost NO COOKING involved!
What you'll need:
Stone ground corn tortillas
A rotisserie chicken
Tomatillo salsa (salsa verde)
Feta cheese
Fresh limes

When we have meals like this we call it 'taco bar night' because we just lay out all the ingredients & everyone builds their own tacos.
So try it out...

Shred the rotisserie chicken (make sure to remove the skin first to save on unnecessary calories & fat)
Chop up the onion & cilantro
Slice the limes into wedges

I like the tortillas to be a little crispy so I brush a little olive oil on each side and put them on a skillet until they've reached my desired crispiness.

Build your own taco however you like it, and go ahead and have (2).

The way I like mine:
tomatillo salsa
feta cheese
top it off with a squeeze of lime

*Like sour cream? Try plain greek yogurt instead! You won't even notice a difference but your body will thank you for it!
