Some days you just don’t have the time or patience for elaborate meal prep or complicated recipes, we get that.

Lucky for us, Niall Kirkland’s on hand with these super-simple BBQ chicken tacos that are bursting with flavour, oozing with melted cheesy goodness, and can be made in less than 20 minutes.

Serves 3                         


  • 400g chicken breast (cubed)
  • 1 tsp. garlic granules
  • 1 tsp. paprika
  • Salt & pepper to season
  • 75ml Sugar-Free Sauce (BBQ)
  • 1 tbsp. 100% Coconut Oil
  • 2 bell peppers (diced)
  • 6 mini tortillas
  • 60g low-fat cheddar (grated)
  • ½ red onion (finely chopped)
Optional toppings:
  • Shredded lettuce
  • Coriander


  1. Preheat your oven to 180°C/350°F.
  2. Firstly, add your chicken, garlic granules, paprika, salt, pepper and Sugar-Free Sauce (BBQ) to a large bowl and mix together.
  3. Next, heat a tablespoon of coconut oil in a large frying pan and add the chicken.
  4. Fry the chicken for 7-8 minutes on a medium heat, stirring regularly until it’s cooked through and then remove from heat.
  5. Now, add the peppers to the pan and fry for a few minutes, or until the pepper is charred slightly.
  6. Next, on a lined baking tray, build your tacos — starting with mini tortillas, grated cheddar, cooked chicken and then red onion.
  7. Bake the tacos for 8 minutes, top with shredded lettuce and coriander, and enjoy!
