What Does Moe’s Chicken Taste Like?

It has a nice flavor from the fresh cilantro and spices, and the chicken is tender when it’s cooked well. I like to use the smoked paprika they give you to season the chicken, giving it the right amount of flavor.

If you use less, then it’s like plain chicken. I also add a little extra spice by stirring a little smoked paprika before grilling them.

How Should I Serve Moe’s Chicken?

I think it would be good with lettuce and tomatoes, a salad, or an appetizer for dipping into salsa with tortilla chips.

Are Moe’s Chicken Good For You?

Yes, it is high in protein, but it’s a very calorie-dense and small serving size. It’s not the healthiest choice for you, but it’s better than other fast food options.

It will fill you up and keep you going quite a bit longer than other meals that are currently on the market. If you can cut back on some of the cheese, it will be healthier for you.

I was okay with eating this way because I knew that this was something that I would eat once in a while when I was out or tired of making dinner. But if I ate this way all the time, there would be consequences.

Are These Moe’s Chicken A Healthy Snack For Kids?

This would not be a good choice for a kid to have for their lunch, but if it was their choice, then I would say that it’s alright. The kids might like the added flavor from the cilantro and salsa, but the nutritional value is not great.

Would They Be Good For Lunch Box?

I wouldn’t recommend it for lunch because they are so small, and it might get thrown in with other foods that are healthy and make it less nutritious than it could be.

But if you could carry a bag of these with your child to school or daycare, they’d probably prefer them over other fast food options.

Will Moe’s Chicken Increase Your Appetite?

It will keep you full for a long time if you eat them with other smaller meals because they are very nutritious and filling. But if you tend to overeat when eating them, the calories may make this a not-so-great choice.

Frequently Asked Questions:

What Kind Of Chicken Does Moe’s Use?

Many folks think they use chicken breasts, but this is not the case. It’s all-white meat chicken, regardless of the size, but they have to get a whole chicken instead of individual breasts because it is less expensive.

What Is White Chicken Moes?

Moe’s uses only white meat for their chicken burritos. White meat chicken is what whole chickens are ground up into, but it can be confused with chicken breast when you’re buying them to make a meal.

Is Chipotle Or Moes Healthier?

Moe’s Chicken Recipe uses many fresh ingredients, and you can use these ingredients to make your own burrito. If you have time, I think Moes will be the healthier option for your meal.

What kind of tortillas does Moe’s use?

Moe’s uses whole wheat tortillas, which are not your standard average type. They are thicker, and there are no artificial ingredients in them.


Moe’s Chicken Recipe is a very filling meal that will satisfy your hunger. Most of the ingredients are natural, so I don’t have to worry about chemicals that make you feel bloated and sluggish when you eat them.

I hear about some of the people that use this for a quick and healthy meal. There are some that consume it every day, but there are many who only use it once in a while.

It’s good for lunch or dinner and can be used to replace other ingredients in your meals. You can also make the salsa recipe to put on burritos, tacos, or salads if you don’t eat them at Moe’s.
