Expert Tips

The tortillas can be fried for a crunchy taco.

My grandpa is a funny fellow for a lot of reasons. For example, he likes to eat meat everyday of his life: beef and pork cuts of all kinds. The funny part is that he will not eat chicken. I try to make him different chicken dishes; some more subtle than others. But he never wants to get near them! I push it on him because chicken is a wholesome alternative to some of the stuff he likes to eat. However, my grandpa always pulls the "I'm 90" card on me when I try to sell him on chicken as a leaner dinner option. I guess there is no way to change his mind at this point in his life. For me though, chicken is a regular part of our family's diet. I especially look forward to taco night and love to prepare chicken tacos. The favorite variety around my house is the lemon-lime chicken tacos I've been making since I could remember. They taste amazing; they're lean and (like I tell my grandpa) are a healthy substitute to other types of meat. Give them a try and delight your family with a tasty lemon lime chicken taco night!

Directions

  • 1 Add chicken to a large airtight bag and add in lemon and lime juice, olive oil, minced garlic, salt, and pepper. Place in the fridge for a minimum of one hour to marinade.
  • 2 On a hot grill, cook chicken until cooked all the way through, for about 10 minutes on each side.
  • 3 Remove chicken from grill and, using a big knife, chop into cubes.
  • 4 Heat tortillas over an open flame until warmed and slightly charred.
  • 5 Fill the center with chicken cubes.
  • 6 Garnish with salsa, diced onion, cilantro, and lemon and lime wedges. Serve and enjoy!
