Our Moroccan walking chicken tacos are a bold dinner choice that changes up traditional American fare.
Moroccan walking chicken tacos are full of big flavors like coriander, turmeric and paprika. The mix-ins are authentic and flavorful as well.
I love simple dinners that require little clean up and these Moroccan walking chicken tacos make both of those things possible. For as much flavor as they provide, you’d think it would take an entire kitchen to create them. Luckily, they require very little.
Most of the fantastic flavor comes from the delicious Moroccan Spice Plentils by Enjoy Life Foods. They provide the perfect top 8 allergen-free base to our tacos. Easily add in the Moroccan spiced chicken and other mix-ins for perfect ethnic tacos on the go. This dinner is one that will wow your guests with flavor without much effort on your part. Get creative with mix-ins but some of my favorites are cucumbers, raisins, peppers, parsley, chickpeas, purple cabbage, shredded carrots and dairy-free yogurt sauce.
