I picked up all the ingredients I needed at the Lebanon Save-A-Lot location and I always love the great selection of both private and national brands that Save-A-Lot offers. I was especially impressed with their fresh produce and just had to pick up some fresh celery and carrots to pair with my Chicken Taco Pinwheels.

For pairing with the fresh celery and carrots, I also picked up a packet of ranch seasoning and light sour cream for a healthier dip. It’s a nice way to add flavor when eating fresh veggies without going overboard on the calories! For serving, I put everything on an adorable football tray, which is the perfect touch to any game day party!

For the shredded chicken used in this recipe, I seasoned the chicken breast with salt and pepper, drizzled lightly with olive oil, and threw in the crock pot for 3 hours on low. This gets the chicken nice and tender, and makes shredding a breeze!

  7. These look so good and so simple! I’ve never made pinwheels before, but I have a recent obsession with cream cheese so I’ll have to try these out. Do they keep in the refrigerator? There’s only the two of us, so I doubt we could eat them all. (doubtful, but possible) Thanks for sharing!

    1. Thank-you! And yep they last in the refrigerator for 3-4 days after making them. If you’re just making for two you could also cut the recipe in half! πŸ™‚

  8. Lovely post!
    Can you follow me? I follow you. πŸ˜‰

    Have a great weekend!

  9. Cara, you make some of the most scrumptious recipes I’ve seen! And these delicious skinny chicken taco pinwheels are no exception. They’re absolutely perfect for game day, movie nights and family gatherings. Yum!

  10. You had me at the word “taco”! Hehe. This looks so yummy, definitely a great recipe for football season, thank you!

  11. That’s so neat!
    I like to make pinwheels myself when I have a larger group of guests over. It’s perfect for appetizers. I have yet to try them with chicken.

  12. Great recipe. I like to cook the chicken in the crockpot too, I would make this a day ahead, refrigerate overnight if the game day is going to be super busy with friends coming over. Pinning so I can refer back to this one!

    1. Thank-you! Yes refrigerating overnight is a great idea, plus I think it helps all the flavors to combine beautifully! πŸ™‚

  13. I disagree with you friend, traditional tailgating food is the best! Lol! But I guess I will have to try this lightened up version to give myself a healthier version of my normal go-tos because the football season is long and I need to be eating better!

    1. Haha don’t get me wrong I love a good cheat meal every now and then, but when I overdo it with tailgating foods, I always feel really guilty and bad afterwards lol. Trying to be better about staying on track! πŸ˜‰

  14. Yummy!! I love how easy this recipe is. This looks like a great mix of flavors and it can be adjusted to your own taste.

  15. Ive never heard of save a lot. we def dont have that here. BUT I love this recipe. Always looking for new variations on tacos and i find pinwheels are a great thing to bring on a picnic or to to the beach.

  16. This looks super yummy…I would love a bite. I’ll try it soon, though the bill for those ingredients would be higher down here!!

  17. These sound delicious and so perfect for a tailgate snack! I love that they’re skinny too, I always eat so bad starting this time of year so this is a great alternative! <3, Pamela Sequins & Sea Breezes

    1. Thank-you! It can be so easy to over eat or over indulge during f-ball season, so that’s why I wanted to do something a little lighter. πŸ™‚

  18. What a yummy recipe- so perfect for football season. We love hosting friends for the games, so this would be awesome. Thanks for the great recipe!

  19. I would have to double the batch because these would be gone fast. Nice to have something else other than the BBQ and heavy stuff all the time.

  20. What a fabulous combination of flavors! I’m going to make this on Saturday for our college football fun! Great recipe lady!
