Zesty Vegan Chicken Tacos

Zesty Vegan Chicken Tacos


1 package of vegan chicken 

8 small corn tortillas

1 avocado, sliced

1 cup shredded lettuce

1/2 cup diced tomatoes

1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro

1/4 cup finely chopped red onion

Juice of 1 lime

2 tablespoons olive oil

1 teaspoon chili powder

1/2 teaspoon cumin

1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

Salt and pepper to taste

Hot sauce or salsa (optional, for serving)


  • Preheat the oven according to the instructions on the package of vegan chicken.
  • In a small bowl, combine the olive oil, chili powder, cumin, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Stir well to make a marinade.
  • Place the vegan chicken strips or nuggets in a mixing bowl and pour the marinade over them. Toss gently to coat the chicken evenly with the spices.
  • Arrange the seasoned vegan chicken on a baking sheet and bake according to the package instructions until crispy and golden.
  • While the vegan chicken is baking, prepare the taco toppings. In separate bowls, have the sliced avocado, shredded lettuce, diced tomatoes, chopped cilantro, and red onion ready.
  • Warm the corn tortillas in a dry skillet over medium heat for about 30 seconds on each side until soft and pliable. Keep them warm in a clean kitchen towel.
  • Once the vegan chicken is cooked, remove it from the oven and allow it to cool slightly. Cut the strips or nuggets into smaller pieces suitable for filling the tacos.
  • Assemble the tacos by placing a generous amount of the vegan chicken pieces onto each tortilla. Top with avocado slices, shredded lettuce, diced tomatoes, chopped cilantro, and red onion.
  • Squeeze fresh lime juice over the tacos for added zest and flavor.
  • Serve the zesty vegan chicken tacos with hot sauce or salsa on the side, if desired.
