Super Simple Chicken Tacos


You may or may not know this about me, but I DO NOT MEAL PREP, not usually. I do not chop and pre-portion and freeze at my house. I might batch cook or use the cook once, eat twice method, but that is about as elaborate as my meal prep gets.

I one hundred percent consider grocery shopping a major part of my meal prep and by that I mean that I'm going to take full advantage of what I can find already prepped for me at the grocery.

Yesterday, we spent the morning paddle boarding (you might have seen what happened to us in my IG stories) and then made our weekly trip to the grocery. It's probably the same for you right now ---> grab your cart and disinfect, wait in line because the store is capping the number of people who can be inside, put on your face mask and then try to shop while staying 6 feet away from everyone else. It's a lot more time consuming!

For dinner, neither one of us felt like spending a bunch of time in the kitchen, on top of the fact that we had not thawed any protein. Enter Super Simple Chicken Tacos and I mean simple! 


One of my best tips for staying on track with your wellness goals while also keeping it simple so you don’t have to spend hours in the kitchen (unless you want to) is to buy pre-cooked protein. I buy pre-cooked shredded chicken for the days when I don’t feel like cooking (or when I forget to thaw the chicken 🤪). *be sure to check the ingredients to make sure nothing has been added (like sugar) that you don't need

Heat up the chicken in a skillet in under 10 minutes, add the taco seasoning and bam! Choose your toppings and serve how you like. I had lettuce cups and mrC had wraps. Super simple and simply delicious!


My recipe for two:

8oz pre-cooked frozen chicken
1 packet taco seasoning
1/2 cup water

Options for toppings: tomato, onions and green chiles (or keep it simple with salsa), (dairy free) cheese, avocado...
Options for serving: romaine lettuce leaves, wraps, hard shells...


Following a healthy lifestyle, like the FASTer Way, does require you to be a chef or make magic happen in the kitchen. To be successful, your meal planning and food prep needs to work with your family routine. It doesn't matter how you do it, as long as you DO IT because failure to plan = planning to fail.
