Pile grilled chicken, feta cheese, refried beans, and homemade slaw on top of a crunchy tortilla shell for a simple dinner that's ready in a hurry.
4 (6-ounce) skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
1 tablespoon 40% less-sodium taco seasoning (such as Old El Paso)
1/2 teaspoon sugar
6 (8-inch) flour tortillas
6 cups packaged coleslaw
1 (7-ounce) can green salsa
4 cups chopped tomato
1/4 cup sliced ripe olives, chopped
1 1/4 cups fat-free refried beans
1/2 cup (2 ounces) crumbled feta cheese
6 tablespoons reduced-fat sour cream
1/4 cup fresh cilantro leaves
1/4 cup unsalted pumpkinseed kernels, toasted (optional)
How to Make It
Prepare grill, or heat a grill pan over medium-high heat.
Brush chicken with juice; sprinkle with seasoning and sugar. Place chicken on grill rack or grill pan coated with cooking spray; grill 4 minutes on each side or until chicken is done. Cool slightly. Cut chicken into 1/4-inch strips; set aside. Place tortillas on grill rack or grill pan coated with cooking spray; grill 30 seconds on each side or until golden brown.
Combine coleslaw and salsa; toss to coat. Combine tomato and olives; toss gently.
Spread about 3 tablespoons beans over each tortilla; divide chicken evenly among tortillas. Top each serving with about 2/3 cup slaw mixture, 2/3 cup tomato mixture, 4 teaspoons cheese, 1 tablespoon sour cream, and 2 teaspoons cilantro. Sprinkle each serving with 2 teaspoons pumpkinseeds, if desired.
This was so good I loved how the tortilla's came out from grilling them. Only change I made was I used shredded lettuce instead of cabbage because it's what I had on hand. I will make this one again for sure the whole family loved it.
This is one of my favorite recipes! I make it without mixing the slaw & salsa ( red salsa is good too). It is great with cilantro & diced avocado mixed and 2 tblsp on top. We also have substituted the feta cheese with low fat sharp cheddar cheese. Have made recipe as it is written and also with substitutes because of my kids not liking feta or slaw mix.
This is so simple, it almost doesn't "count" as a recipe. Great easy dinner for nights when you don't have time to cook. Used leftover rotisserie chicken breast, whole wheat tortilla, fresh fireroasted red salsa, added avocado and deleted cilantro, and it was great! Easy to make for 1, 2 or more...delicious! I will definitely keep this recipe and make it again!
Really good. I didn't have chicken, so I made it with shrimp; same seasonings. After reading one of the reviews below, I warmed up the beans before adding them. I'm a fan of refried beans, but I think this recipe would be really good without them too.
Made it exactly as written, it was wonderful! We liked it so much we are having it again tomorrow night since there are leftover ingredients. I immediately thought of making this for friends. The feta DOES go well, don't change a thing. Be sure to remember the cilantro, very good.
