A new year always brings resolutions and goals for all of us. I don’t necessarily make New Year’s resolutions but I do believe in setting goals for ourselves. One of the goals this year is to shed those unwanted pounds and start the New Year off with better for me food choices.

While shopping in Sam’s Club the other day, I found the 3 lb. bags of Tyson® Grilled & Ready® Chicken Breast Strips. I knew it would be perfect to stock up on and to have on hand to make better choices when cooking. The Tyson® Grilled & Ready Chicken Breast Strips would be perfect for my chicken tacos and fajitas I enjoy cooking for my family.

Heat your tortillas. If you’re going for the most delicious method I cook mine on the stove top with a little butter on each side until brown… but we’re going for a better for you option so heat in the microwave for a few seconds covered with a damp paper towel.

Add chicken mixture to tortillas, top with red pepper strips and a dollop of yogurt. Yogurt is the perfect substitution to sour cream.

  1. I am so hungry right now and these chicken tacos look great. I have tried the Tyson grilled & ready chicken breasts before with a salad and it was delicious. Now time to make tacos! Except I may make mine with green ile, sour cream and cilantro.

  2. Oh yum, I’m all about easy quick dinners and this looks like one that fits the bill and delicious too. Thanks for sharing!

  3. Whenever I buy Cilantro i have a lot left over, always! So, i make Cilantro Lime Chicken, which fortunately everybody likes!

  4. I would really love to make this but my sister isvallergic to cilantro and basil. can you suggest another herb to use? the only thing I can think of is flat parsley…but its so…well, parsley?

  5. These look delicious! I think we’ll have these for dinner tomorrow night. Thanks for the tip on saving $5 on tyson chicken.
