boneless chicken breast halves, cooked and cubed
chopped fresh cilantro to taste
1 (1 ounce) package
taco seasoning mix
I made this for lunch today, great recipe. Very easy and tasty! I used half a packet of taco seasoning (a whole packet just looked like too much), added some chopped green onion and some shredded cheddar cheese in with the mix. Spread some on tortillas and top with lettuce...mmm good!
This recipe tasted great as soon as I made it. It doesn't last long at all in the fridge!
This recipe is very easy & tastes great. I wrapped it in flour tortillas with lettuce & cheese. I liked this better than regular chicken salad.
I liked this recipe. It's fast and easy to make. I used green onions as well. I also added tumeric and paprika for color. It may sound strange, but I also put about 1tsp of lemon juice because it seemed like it was "missing something". The lemon juice blended well and brightened the flavor.
Good!!!!!I would for sure cut back on the taco seasoning,its over powering.
I mashed avacado and combined it with diced tomatoe and added the cilantro. Added this mixture to the cubed chicken added low fat mayo, celery, half of th taco mix and a alittle lemon jiuce. Served it on a tostado with shredded cheddar cheese on top and it was very tasty!
Fantastic! I made this and used Taco Seasoning I from this site and reduced the salt by half. Huge raves over this chix salad!
very easy and good. I used scallions instead of celery.
