Naked Chicken Taco with Spicy Cilantro Crema

Having a taco with a chicken filet instead of a shell is probably blasphemy in some groups, but Naked Chicken Tacos, are actually pretty darn good! Turning the monotony of a pre-cooked diet meal into something you wouldn’t even know is good for you!

I’m all about wrapped up with my Personal Trainer Food this year, and I’ve lost a good amount of weight – I’m not even sure how much because I haven’t checked, but the photos I’ve been taking (I’ll share next week) definitely show a difference!

Towards the end of the month, I’ve got to admit it’s been tough staying with it. What’s really helped me is getting creative with my meals. Their spicy chicken filets are amazing, and a great candidate for turning them into something special.

Whether you’re eating this Naked Chicken Taco open-faced, with a fork and a knife, or folding it up and eating, its delicious either way. And don’t skimp on the spicy cilantro crema. It’s a little concoction I came up with based off of my favorite Peruvian restaurant, that is super addicting!

I quick blend of lettuce, mayo, lime juice, serrano pepper, garlic, shallots and cumin. Takes 5 minutes to put together and you can keep it in the fridge and pour over all your favorite Personal Trainer food entrees! Screw it – over EVERYTHING

You are more than welcome to use any thin pre-cooked chicken patty you want – but if you’re on the Personal Trainer Food RECON program like me, this is definitely something I recommend trying out! Super quick to prep and easy to take with you!

Thanks to Personal Trainer Food for supplying the food for this recipe and my weight loss journey! All opinions are my own!

  • Any taco is A-OK in my book. I could really eat them all day. . .but I do try to keep my carbs under control (well. . .most days) so I’m loving this idea of using spicy chicken in lieu of a more carb-y shell. As for the lime crema. . .you can drizzle all that yumminess on everything that crosses your path. 😉

    What a great idea! I love that it takes no time at all to make – a great snack for my hungry teenagers!

  • Yum…what a great way to eat that juicy chicken. The crema would be a great addition….but I am one of those people that don’t like cilantro…but it sounds delicious.

    I generally add cilantro in all my cooking, my hubbys says i dont know ocoking without it. i can imagine the flavour of this chicken. spicy touch makes it perfect

  • Why not use chicken for a wrap?! That ‘s a fun and innovative idea, especially for those carnivores out there! Yummy!

  • Sarah Anne Stubbs

    What a cool idea! It’s like the healthy version of the Taco Bell Naked Taco (which I actually enjoyed)!

  • Sarah James

    I love the idea of naked tacos and with that spicy coriander crema I bet it’s delicious. Thanks for sharing 🙂
