Loaded Spicy Chicken Lettuce ‘Tacos’

Updated: Sep 19, 2020

Hey guys.

These Spicy Chicken Lettuce Tacos are everything I love about a good meal: texture variety, full of flavour, lots of colour and packed with nutrients. They are filling despite being on the low carb spectrum, keeping protein high with good, healthy fats to keep you satiated. During the hot weather I love light and zesty suppers like this. I hope you enjoy!

Ingredients for 2 people:

250g chicken breast cut into strips

6 large cauliflower florets, roughly chopped

1 red onion, chopped into cubes

20 cherry tomatoes sliced in half

4 chestnut mushrooms, sliced

2 large handfuls baby spinach

1 tsp turmeric

2 tsp paprika

1 tsp chilli flakes

2 garlic cloves

1/2 lemon (juice)

1 tsp tabasco

10-15 gem lettuce leaves (decide how many you want each)

1 large handful of coriander, chopped for garnishing

1/2 avocado

2 tsp coconut oil


  1. Start by prepping your veggies and chop up to size.

  2. In a non stick frying pan, add the coconut oil. Once melted, add the red onion slices and cauliflower. Coat with the spices.

  3. Line a grill tray with baking parchment. Add a little olive oil to the base and arrange the chicken breast pieces across. Chop your garlic clove and scatter across the chicken with the remaining 1 tsp of paprika, a squeeze of lemon and S+P – rub into the chicken to coat it.

  4. Grill for 15-20 minutes on 200c. Flip the chicken over half way through for even cooking.

  5. Add the mushrooms, tomato and spinach to the veg pan with 1 tsp chilli flakes and mix well. Cook on a medium temperature for 10 mins.

  6. While you have the two main parties sizzling, let's get organised to plate up! Chop your avocado into cubes and set aside.

  7. Wash your lettuce cups thoroughly and arrange on your plate. Once your veg mix is cooked, distribute it into the cups evenly.

  8. Add the chicken pieces to your tacos and scatter across the avocado, coriander, an extra squeeze of lemon and 1 tsp of tabasco.

  9. Voila! ‘Loaded Spicy Chicken Lettuce Tacos’ complete! DIG IN.

I hope you enjoy this recipe. Do let me know if you make it, I love seeing your creations!
