Roasted Chicken Tacos

Chicken tacos are always on the menu for a yummy family dinner. Even if it’s too cold outside to fire up the grill, you can get the same flavors from an extra-hot stovetop pan for your chili-powder-dusted chicken thighs. After grilling, cube the chicken and top with jalapeño slices (just leave these off for the kids if they don’t like too much spice). Add some pomegranate seeds with your avocado garnish to embrace the flavors of winter (and add a fun pop of color for the kids!). Then wrap everything in our fiber-filled Carb Balance Soft Taco Flour Tortillas for a delicious flavor that you know is Better For You.
