This Paleo Ground Chicken Taco Salad recipe is easy to make, packed with nutritious ingredients, and takes bland ground chicken to a super delicious meal. Plus, it’s simple with minimal ingredients and it’s Whole30 and AIP-friendly.
Start with making the salsa. Add diced pineapple, red onion, cilantro, and lime juice to a small bowl and mix well. Adjust flavors as desired or add to a food processor if you’d like it to be more saucy rather than chunky. Let it sit so the flavors can meld together.
Next, make the taco meat. Add olive oil to a hot skillet over medium heat. Mix in the ground chicken, breaking it up with a wooden spoon. Next, add in all taco seasonings including salt and pepper as you continue to stir into the ground chicken. Once the chicken is fully cooked, remove the skillet from heat and let sit to cool off for a few minutes.
Then, assemble the salad. In a serving bowl, add chopped lettuce and dress with olive oil and lime juice. Then, layer in the pineapple salsa and room temperature taco meat on top. Serve and enjoy with optional garnish like lemon wedges!
