How To Make Ground Chicken Tacos
This ground chicken tacos recipe is one of my favorite weeknight meals. It’s so easy to make! When I sink my teeth into the first bite, the rest of the world seems to stop so I can enjoy the rich, deep flavors!
Here’s all you need to know for taco perfection:
Start by adding the veggie oil to a large skillet over medium heat. Wait until the oil starts shimmering in the pan.
Add the onion and sauté until it softens, which should take about 5 minutes. Sautéing veggies before adding them to a dish helps release their aromatic flavor for a more balanced and slightly sweet profile, sure to enhance the taste of your meal.
Stir in the taco seasoning and toast the spices for about 2 minutes, until they become fragrant. Toasting the spices helps coax out their essential oils and deepens their flavors. This step is very important to the success of your dish.
Add ground chicken and brown while breaking up chunks with the back of your spoon, or edge of your spatula.
Add tomato sauce and remaining ingredients, and stir well to coat chicken evenly. Cook uncovered for about 10 minutes allowing the sauce to thicken to your liking.
Pro Tip: Chicken is much lower in fat than beef, so cooking it in the tomato sauce prevents the chicken from becoming dry. Chicken loves tomato sauce, and using it will reward you with a moist, succulent dish!
Serve with a low carb tortilla or low carb tortilla chips and your favorite toppings. Relax, and enjoy as this is a warm, scrumptious dish that’ll satisfy your soul!
Psst — you can try making ground chicken tacos crockpot style for those busy weeknight dinners!
