Chicken Taco Salad

It's funny, the first three meals listed on the Frickin Chicken do happen to be chicken. My sister is here this weekend. I was going to make some pork chops for dinner, but my sister's diet does not include pork chops. She'll eat pork, but not pork chops. But that is a whole other story. So, in an attempt to come up with a quick dinner that everyone would enjoy, I went to an easy favorite. Chicken Taco Salad. Actually, I make the chicken meat and then leave it up to each individual to plate in the way they choose. I made a salad, my husband John, made tacos and my sister made a wrap that had ranch dressing on it.

Chicken Taco Meat

2 chicken breasts
1/2 an onion
2 cloves of garlic
1/2 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp oregano
1 packet of Taco Seasoning
1/4 cup water

Chop onion and garlic. Sautè until they start to caramelize. Add chicken and seasonings. When chicken is cooked through, add the packet of Taco Seasoning. Add water. Stir. Simple really.

Accouterments, whatever you have on hand, we used:
Chopped lettuce
Green onions
Tortilla or tortilla chips
Sour Cream
Ranch Dressing (for a chicken taco wrap)

Weight Watchers:
1pt per ounce of chicken
