This is another great summer meal with fresh yummy toppings.  You could also use this meat for a taco salad.  I loved that you didn't have to brown the meat and it still worked.  The ground chicken is lean enough that it doesn't sit in a bunch of grease. 

I love the Gold n' Plump ground chicken.  It is easy to cook, flavorful and very healthy.  If you go to their site you can get a coupon for your next Gold n' Plump purchase.  If you haven't tried ground chicken yet, do it.  My family is loving it.  I enjoy it much more than ground beef.  You can substitute it in most any recipe that calls for ground beef or ground turkey.
