I have a minor obsession with Chicken Tacos, or as I lovingly describe them– Tikken Chakos. I could consume them each and every single day and I ‘d probably never ever get ill of it. Utilizing lettuce leaves rather of flour tortillas, however, not only makes it a completely healthy meal, but still a flavor-packed taco.
