These chicken tacos come together in about 15 minutes. They’re tasty, healthy and can be in your belly in less time than it would take to order some takeout. Topped with some creamy guacamole, they’re hard to beat in the taste + convenience department. We’re relying on some convenient freezer and pantry staples to make this happen. No shame from this corner of the internet. It doesn’t have to be gourmet all the time people. Let’s make this happen.
Today I have a simple recipe for you, and a great way to jazz up those weeknight chicken breasts. Ovi and I end up eating a lot of chicken. It’s cheap, healthy, full of lean protein and really quick. Chicken breasts are perfect for weeknights, which means of course that they can get pretty monotonous. No more monotony, friends of the internet. Lemons and fennel are here to save the day. This lemon fennel relish can be made up to 2 whole weeks in advance and used to brighten up your meals for as long as it lasts.
Chicken saltimbocca is one of my very favorite Italian dishes. The crispy but tender chicken, the salty bite of prosciutto, the earthy sage, buttery sauce….goodness! So much to love! Unfortunately, this delicious dish as prepared by our local Italian restaurants is just swimming in butter and olive oil (delicious, delicious butter and olive oil.) This dish mimics the flavor combination of a traditional saltimbocca, but with a tiny fraction of the calorie and fat content. It comes together quickly, looks beautiful, and tastes amazing.
