This is the easiest and most delicious way I’ve made chicken breast EVER! It takes about 30 minutes start to finish and you can use the resulting chicken to make these beautiful tacos or any one of a number of delicious recipes. Each serving of chicken is also under 100 calories with 13 grams of protein!

….or anything else you can think of like nachos, burritos, taco bowls, served over rice etc etc.
