Shredded Chicken Taco

This is my new lunch addiction! It’s quick and easy if you do just a little prep work ahead of time. I LOVE Cyndi’s Salsa Verde Crockpot Chicken. I make up a batch of it, and then store half cup servings of the shredded chicken in my freezer to use during the week for a quick lunch!

 

Gather all of the ingredients together… small carb balance mission tortillas, prepared pico de gallo, chipotle flavored laughing cow cheese, and a serving of the salsa verde chicken. Since the chicken is frozen… I heat it up in the microwave for approximately 3 minutes…

 

While the chicken is warming, I spread the laughing cow cheese on the tortilla…

 

Then layer it up!

 

I love pico!

 

This makes a great lunch!

Turkey Chili

First, I cut the spaghetti squash in half lengthwise…
and scoop out the center/seeds…
Place upside down in dish and fill with approximately an inch of water…
Cover with saran wrap and microwave between 10 and 12 minutes…
(Or bake upside down on cookie sheet for 45 minutes at 350F)
Brown 1 lb of ground turkey meat (I prefer 85/15 so it doesn’t look white) on medium/high heat…
-I usually add 2 cans of diced tomatoes with green chilies
(My boys don’t like tomatoes, so I puree them in the blender first)
-Add 1 can of chili beans in medium sauce
-Add 1 packet of chili seasoning
Taa-daaaah!
Scoop out the spaghetti squash…
Add 1 cup of chili and 1 cup of spaghetti squash…
I usually double the recipe so I can make up some containers for the freezer for future lunches…
These are great to grab when things get crazy and I need a filling lunch that doesn’t take forever…
So good!  :)
