I cooked up a couple of boneless skinless chicken breasts to make chicken tacos tonight. I started with the recipe here despite the mix of reviews. I was intrigued by the idea of lemonade somehow…but I would definitely classify the chicken as bland.
When I tasted some partway through the simmering to reduce the sauce I knew I had to do something. I added a splash of tequila, some ground cumin, and a good dose of taco seasoning. Then suddenly they were great! So next time I do this, I think I’ll just marinade some chicken in a bit of lemon and or lime juice and tequila and cumin, then cook with some taco seasoning and water, letting most of the liquid evaporate.
I served this with grated cheese,chopped lettuce, chopped tomatoes, sour cream, chopped avocados, and salsa plus refried beans and corn tortillas.
For lunch tomorrow, my youngest has a salad packed up with some of this on top. A handful of tortilla chips will round out a great lunch I think! This is one of those Fit and Fresh containers that includes an ice pack. Very cool.
I bought two different Fit & Fresh containers the other day and am quite impressed so far. If you’re trying to pack some healthy lunches and minimize landfill waste, they are affordable and well made.
