Lighter Chicken Tacos

These lighter chicken tacos are the perfect mid-week meal when you’re running short on time. The salsa adds lots of flavour without the calories – 100g of salsa is only 25 calories! Lots of flavour comes from the chipotle taco mix which you simply mix with olive oil and marinate the chicken pieces in it while you prepare the remaining ingredients. Finish the tacos off with a big dollop of our chipotle salsa.

You can nibble on some of these easy to make nachos as you make these chicken tacos.
