Adjust serving size: 


  • 1 1/4 lbs boneless skinless chicken - breast or thighs may be used
  • 1 teaspoon avocado oil
  • 1/2 head green cabbage sliced thin
  • 3 carrot peeled & sliced
  • 3 baby persian cucumber sliced
  • 2 tablespoons taco seasoning add recipe to Meal Planner or purchase store-bought
  • 1/2 cup salsa fresca add recipe to Meal Planner or purchase store-bought
  • 1/2 cup cilantro dressing add recipe to Meal Planner or purchase store-bought
  • 2 cups cooked black beans add recipe to Meal Planner or purchase store-bought, omit for Paleo

How to Make:

  1. If you've chosen to make this whole recipe from scratch, start by preparing the Black Beans {homemade or canned}, Cilantro Dressing, Salsa Fresca, and the Taco Seasoning per recipes provided.
  2. Preheat grill for cooking using medium-heat. You may also prepare the chicken in the oven. For this option, preheat the oven to 400° and place rack in the middle of the oven.
  3. Rinse and pat the chicken thighs dry, coat them with avocado oil, and then coat with the Taco Seasoning.
  4. Grill the chicken; thighs for approximately 10-15 minutes or breasts for approximately 15-20 minutes. Cook time will vary based on the size of your portions.
    The best way to ensure it’s done is to use an instant-read thermometer. It should read 165° F when inserted into the thickest part.
  5. Warm the beans: if you’ve made the homemade black beans ahead of time, warm them in a heavy pot over low-heat. Or if using canned black beans, prepare per recipe provided.
  6. Prepare the cabbage, carrots and cucumber, and then slice or dice the chicken.
  7. Starting with the cabbage as a base, assemble the taco bowl as desired, adding a little of each ingredient to your bowls, and then dress with the cilantro dressing.
