Cuisine: Mexican

kcal: 420 per serving

Ingredients:

  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 8 small taco-sized flour tortillas
  • 2 cups chopped romaine lettuce
  • 1/2 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • Caesar dressing (store-bought or homemade)
  • Fresh parsley or cilantro for garnish (optional)

Instructions:

  1. In a medium-sized bowl, mix olive oil, minced garlic, paprika, dried oregano, salt, and pepper to create the marinade for the chicken.
  2. Slice the chicken breasts into thin strips and add them to the marinade. Toss the chicken to coat it evenly with the marinade. Cover the bowl and let the chicken marinate for at least 15 minutes.
  3. While the chicken is marinating, prepare the Caesar salad ingredients. Chop the romaine lettuce and halve the cherry tomatoes. Grate the Parmesan cheese and set all the salad ingredients aside.
  4. Heat a non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Once hot, add the marinated chicken strips to the skillet. Cook the chicken for about 5-7 minutes, stirring occasionally, until it’s fully cooked and slightly browned.
  5. Warm the flour tortillas in a dry skillet or microwave for a few seconds to make them pliable.
  6. Assemble the Chicken Caesar Salad Tacos: Place a spoonful of the cooked chicken onto each tortilla. Top the chicken with a generous amount of chopped romaine lettuce, cherry tomatoes, and grated Parmesan cheese.
  7. Drizzle Caesar dressing over the toppings. Add fresh parsley or cilantro for extra flavor and a pop of color (optional).
  8. Gently fold each taco in half to enclose the filling and create a taco shape.
  9. Serve the Chicken Caesar Salad Tacos immediately and enjoy!

Note: For added crunch and flavor, you can also sprinkle some crispy croutons over the salad toppings before drizzling with Caesar dressing.
