Quick Fix Chicken Tacos

Are you looking for more quick, yet healthy, dinner options during your busy week? One of the most helpful tips I can give is to repurpose leftover cooked meat to pull together different dishes. I often use leftovers from my Herbs de Province Slow Cook Chicken recipe to use for these tacos.




Quick Fix Chicken Tacos

Total time: 
Serves: 4
  • ~ 2 lbs. cooked chicken, chopped
  • ½ cabbage, shredded

  • ½ cup organic cheddar, shredded (optional0
  • 8 alternative flour tortillas (optional)
  1. In a medium bowl, combine tomatoes, olives, green onions, peppers, and avocado.
  2. Add lime juice, olive oil, salt and pepper and gently toss. Top with cilantro.
  3. In each tortilla, add cabbage, chicken, tomato avocado salsa, and cheese (if using).
I love the cassava flour tortilla recipe from thepaleomom.com. You can also skip the tortillas and serve this over a bed of fresh salad greens. Top with sprouts or micro greens for an extra nutrient punch.




For my family, these Otto’s Naturals cassava flour tortillas make these quick fix tacos a special treat. I usually use the recipe from The Paleo Mom and they always turn out tasty.


Or simply serve this dish over a bed of fresh salad greens and omit the tortillas.
