You can pretty much put any taco ingredient in a taco, but instead of stuffing it all inside taco shells, and sprinkle them on top it’s pretty as it is satisfying and when you’re all done eating.

It’s so delightful, fresh, crunchy, with a nice combination of protein and green. So many different things going on, and it’s hard to get bored: crips green, grilled chicken, egg, avocado, and cheese.

There’re all that’s wonderful, good breakfast twist. And you can serve up on a plate with sour cream and yogurt as best eaten healthy at your favorite table morning, and it makes a lovely, satisfying, super any day of the week.

Make Ahead

  • Marinate and grill the chicken up to 1 day in advance and store in the fridge. Dice before cooking time.


  • Serve with a dollop of sour cream or yogurt as well.
  • Add a spoon of diched bell pepper, if you prefer.

Chang Thing Up

  • Use a several slices of fried bacon, sausage instead of chicken.
Make sauce for seasoning.
 Make Sauce

Whisk 1 teaspoon olive oil, 1 teaspoon lemon juice, ½ teaspoon honey, ¼ teaspoon salt, ¼ black pepper, crushed garlic together in small bowl; set aside.

Use a sharp knife to slice the chicken.
 Prep Chicken

Use a sharp knife to slice right through the middle horizontally, making two thin cutlets. Season chicken with sauce mixture.

Place chicken in pan, can cook until well browned.
 Grill Chicken

Heat nonstick grill pan over medium heat until shimmering. Place chicken in pan, and cook until well browned, 7 to 10 minutes. Flip and continue to grill until completely cooked through; set aside. 

Dip tortillas briefly in water.

To Soften Tortillas

  • Dip them briefly in water not too much just until dip juicy holding the both sides.
Add egg on taco pan.

Pan With a Taco

  • The first taco is rarely perfect, but tacos get better and easier to make after the first 2 or 3. By then, you’ll figure out the best temperature for working at steady rhythm.
