I love chicken tacos but I must admit it wasn’t easy finding a diet-friendly recipe for this dish. Most of the chicken taco recipes that I’ve found online were around 9 points or more per serving, so I kept looking until I found this one. The nutritional info doesn’t include the toppings, just the basic recipe. Enjoy!
