  • (1) 3 oz. package all-natural, gluten-free, soy-free pre-cooked chicken breast strips
  • 1 clove garlic, pressed
  • 1/4 cup water (can increase to 1/2 cup)
  • 1/4 cup onion flakes
  • 1/4 tsp onion powder
  • 1/8 tsp celery seed
  • 1/8 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 cup grape or cherry tomatoes, sliced
  • 1/4 cup green onions, sliced
  • 1/4 cup red onion, diced
  • 1/4 cup cilantro, sliced
  • black pepper. as desired (I go all out!)


  1. In a skillet, add the onion flakes, onion powder, celery seed, sea salt, chicken breast strips, and water.
  2. Sauté for 15-20 minutes on a medium to high heat. The water will absorb the seasonings and will then adhere to the chicken for an even-coated flavor. If all of a sudden it starts to dry (I’ve had this happen a few times), just stir in a few tablespoons of water and remove from the heat.
  3. Scoop chicken onto lettuce leaves and top with tomatoes, onions, cilantro, and pepper.


If you want to have more control over the spiciness, combine seasonings in a small glass dish and gradually pour on top of the chicken as it sautés, taste-testing until you have the desired flavor. Additionally, you can sauté your desired toppings for the last few minutes of cooking. Serve immediately.
