These were on the March SFM Meal Plan last week and are always a hit in our home. Who doesn’t love a sheet pan meal!? Sheet pan meals make for easy clean up, which is a huge win in my book. Next taco Tuesday put these Chipotle Chicken Baked Tacos on the menu, you wont regret it! The macros are pretty darn great too.
I don’t feel like ground chicken is a common thing, but it really is easy to dress up for taco night. Don’t fret if you don’t see ground chicken at your local grocery store, you can put some chicken breasts or tenders in your food processor (This will save you a few bucks too).
Here’s the chipotle peppers I use right out of the can in adobo sauce. You can even take some of the extra adobo sauce and mix it with some Greek yogurt, or sour cream, for a yummy chipotle dressing on your tacos.
I hope you love this recipe as much as I do. Tag me on Instagram if you make it! I absolutely love seeing you guys making my recipes and sharing, it means a lot.
