All you need is 15 minutes for these quick tacos. Leave it to your family to fill them with their favourite fillings. Who said dinner can’t be fast and fun? You could replace the chicken with turkey, beef or pork if you prefer. We love Mexican on the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge!
Spray a saucepan with oil and place over a low heat. Add peppers and celery and cook until softened.

Heat the taco shells according to packet directions. Divide salad leaves between taco shells and top with satay chicken mix and garnish with coriander leaves to serve.
