Baja Chicken Tacos

Is it just me or does all chaos break loose at about 4pm? It’s like the kids come home from school, the toddlers start having meltdowns, and I kind of want to hide in a corner and cry until bed time. A little ironic that that is also the time that we need to be our most productive – helping with homework, wiping away tears, and somehow amidst the chaos, prepare dinner.

I’ve learned that while I like to prepare most of my meals from scratch, I must have some simple things on hand that can help me prepare a healthful meal in a hurry. It’s also a bonus if that quick and simple meal is something that our whole family will devour.

Enter SIMPLY SMART chicken (remember we told you about them last week?). SIMPLY SMART CHICKEN is the perfect marriage of convenience and health. This line of grilled, lightly breaded and roasted chicken  was created from real, simple and recognizable ingredients, like sea salt, unbleached wheat flour, cracked black pepper, and olive in. In fact, in doesn’t even have any preservatives (unlike my beloved potstickers from Costco).

Simply Smart

Each item in SIMPLY SMART’s line has at least 40% fewer calories, 50% less fat, and 25% more protein than the USDA standard for breaded fried boneless chicken. (I don’t know about you, but I <3 those numbers!)  It is also found in the Weight Watchers online foods database, making it an excellent addition to any “slim” minded recipe!

This line of easy-to-prepare chicken hit the shelves just last month and is now carried at most local grocery stores that carry Perdue products. It’s nice feeling less guilty when I need to use frozen foods to make a quick meal for my family.

If you want to try SIMPLY SMART chicken, give these Baja Chicken Tacos a try. It’ll be easy since you will already have the red cabbage and whole wheat tortillas on hand from the Creamy Avocado and White Bean Wraps we posted yesterday!

PSSST!!! And of course we have a coupon for you too!
