  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 pound chicken tenderloins
  • 8 leaves bibb lettuce
  • 1/2 cup nonfat plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 grapefruit flesh removed with a grapefruit spoon or a sharp knife
  • 1/4 cup plain almonds chopped
  • 1/4 cup fresh mint chopped


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degree F. Line a baking sheet with foil and spray with cooking spray.
  2. Mix together cumin, chili powder, and paprika. Run mixture onto chicken tenderloins and lay on prepared baking sheet. Bake about 6 minutes, turning halfway, until cooked all the way through. Once cool, slice tenderloins into strips.
  3. Lay lettuce cups flat. You are going to fill them as if they are tacos. Spread Greek yogurt in a strip down the middle. Divide chicken strips evenly among lettuce cups. Divide grapefruit evenly among the lettuce cups. Sprinkle with almonds and mint. Enjoy.
