The Best Grilled Chicken Tacos

So simple and easy to though together, yet your family and friends will think you spent hours on them. They are truly The Best Grilled Chicken Tacos recipe for tacos that I have ever had.  This is a must try recipe for any get together or just for a fun family meal.  Trust me….you won’t regret it!

Ingredients

Instructions

  1.  To make marinade, mix first 11 ingredients in bowl. Reserve ½ to 1 c. of the marinade in a separate container to use for dipping and grilling tortillas right before serving.   Marinate chicken in a covered bowl (or in a bag) for at least 3-6 hours. You can even make extra bags of the marinade and keep them in the freezer until ready to use.  If you don’t have to marinate, it’s ok.  Just make sure that you keep a good amount of the marinade for your tortillas for grilling.  You will get the extra flavor from those!
  2. When ready, grill chicken tenderloins & remove from grill when done or they have reached 170 degrees. This should only take 3-4 minutes per side. Cover chicken on a plate with a foil tent and set aside. Then pour reserve marinade into a pie plate. Dip tortillas in marinade and grill on both sides over medium heat for a minute or two on each side until grill marks show on the tortilla and the marinade starts to dry up. Don’t overcook because they will burn and turn very hard. It’s better to underdo it than overdo it.
  3. After chicken has rested, cut into strips & put in a bowl for serving.  Serve tacos with chicken inside the tortillas and all the desired toppings you would like!  I love to top them with fresh guacamole, pico or salsa, sour cream or Greek yogurt, cilantro, lettuce, fresh lime, and cheese!!

Enjoy!!

Notes

*Remember to reserve 1/2 cup of the marinade for the tortillas and when cooking the tortillas turn the grill down to low.

*Plain Greek yogurt makes an easy and healthy swap for sour cream and no one will know the wiser!
