  • Recipe

    Heat a griddle or grill pan on medium-high heat. Spray with non-stick ghee and add the chopped vegetables. Season to taste with creole seasoning, and saute until tender, about 4-6 minutes. Spray the other side of the griddle with spray, add chicken slices in one later, and season with creole seasoning. Allow the chicken to cook 3-4 minutes, then flip. Cook until the juices run clear or 165ºF internal temperature is reached. Spray a clean open space on the griddle, and toast the tortillas on both sides. Assemble the tacos…tortilla, chicken, veggies, lettuce, cheese, and ranch. Toss the salad ingredients together, customize to your preference, and serve with tacos.
