Taco Chicken

     Have I mentioned that both of my daughters are amazing cooks, (actually my son as well)!?  So proud of those kids, especially when they are willing to share with mommy!  Daughter #1 ( aka...Courtney), spoils her hubby with a new dinner every night, then texts Daughter #2 (aka...Chelsea) and I pictures of their drool worthy plates.  To her credit, my inspiration for Taco Chicken comes from my "numero uno"  female offspring, (cheers for genetics)!  Not only was the flavor unparalleled, the macros are fantastic too.  Each of the 8 servings are only 278 calories, 12.5g net carbs and 34g protein.  The other bonus, Taco Chicken can be folded into a taco or used on top of a mixed Green name your poison as you are heading to the kitchen.  Join in on our family fun, try this out, then text a picture to someone you love!  #familia

1 diced Roma Tomato, drained on paper towel
2.5 pounds Chicken Tenderloins
