Cool, Crunchy, Chicken Tacos

One of Mike and my goals this year is to eat healthier. I don't know about you but when you hear something is healthy the first thing that comes to mind is "flavorless, boring, gross." This is not one of those recipes. This recipe is packet full of texture and flavor. I adapted the ingredients to make it more healthful. The original recipe is from The Pampered Chef.
I Know this isn't the best picture but I was really hungry and didn't want to get out the nice camera.

Whole wheat tortillas (original recipe calls for hard yellow taco shells)
1 small head romaine lettuce
1-2 limes
1/2 C. plain yogurt (original recipe calls for mayonnaise)
2 t. ground cumin
1/4 t. cayenne pepper
1/4 t. salt
3 C. diced grilled chicken breast (I use some of the sauce as a marinade)
1/2 small jicama
1 small mango
1/2 C. cilantro

Sauce: mix 1 t. lime zest, 1 T. lime juice, yogurt, cumin, and cayenne pepper. 

Salsa: Peal jicama and mango and cut them into 1/4 thick strips. Chop cilantro. Combine jicama, mango, cilantro, salt, and remaining lime juice and toss to coat. 

Set 1/4 sauce aside to used as a garnish. Coat the uncooked chicken breast with 1/4 of sauce and then grill the chicken. Once the chicken is grilled cut into strips. Pour the remaining sauce (1/2 of the amount) over the chicken and stir to coat.

Chop lettuce.

Get tortilla and put some of the reserved sauce. Add chicken, salsa, and lettuce. Wrap and enjoy.
