Chicken Street Tacos Recipe
These marinated chicken street tacos are packed with flavor, easy to make, and served simply with cilantro, onion, and salsa. Make them for your next taco nigh on the grill or cooked in a hot skillet.
List of Ingredients:
- 1 lb boneless skinless chicken thighs (or breast)
- 2 tbsp lime juice
- 2 tbsp orange juice (or more lime juice)
- 1 tbsp honey
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 2 tbsp taco seasoning (or homemade option below)
- 8 corn tortillas
- 1/4 cup cilantro
- 2 tbsp onions, diced
- 1/2 cup salsa
Add the chicken to a non-reactive bowl or container with lime juice, orange juice, honey, olive oil, and taco seasoning. Let marinate for 30-60 minutes. Do not marinate longer or the chicken will break down in the lime juice.
Remove the chicken from the marinade and lightly pat it dry with paper towels. This will help it get crispy.
Heat a grill over medium-high heat. Grill the chicken thighs for 4-5 minutes per side or until cooked through. Let rest for 5 minutes. You can also cook this in a heavy skillet over medium-high heat. Add a drizzle of olive oil. Add the chicken in a single layer and let it sear and brown for 4-5 minutes on each side.
Let the cooked chicken rest for 5 minutes. Then chop the chicken into bite-sized pieces. Generally, street tacos have small pieces of meat, but you can slice to your preference.
Assemble the tacos with warmed corn tortillas, cilantro, diced onions, and salsa.
