Grilled Chicken Tacos

Who says that you have to celebrate Taco Tuesday on a Tuesday? Tacos are simple to make, easy to assemble, and full of flavor! I love tacos in so many forms: fish tacos, ground turkey tacos, chicken tacos, black bean and sweet potato tacos… they are just so good!


Let’s keep the simple things simple:

Cook 4 large chicken breasts by cooking directly on an outdoor grill.

Alternatively, heat a large skillet on medium-high heat. Brown the chicken in 2 TBS of olive oil, cooking evenly on both sides. As soon as the chicken is finished cooking shred it using a mixer (like a Kitchen Aid) or you can do it manually. Add 6 TBS of taco seasoning (recipe below if you prefer to make it yourself!)

Save yourself time! While the chicken is cooking, work on the pico de gallo!

  • 1 Cup cherry tomatoes
  • 1/2 Medium sized red onion (diced)
  • 1/4 Cup fresh cilantro (chop)
  • 1 Lime

Dice the onion, slice the tomatoes in quarters, and roughly chop the cilantro. Add the juice of the entire lime (or 2 if you like).

To assemble the tacos:

  • Place the seasoned chicken in a whole wheat tortilla
  • Add pico de gallo
  • Add avocado
  • To add flavor and moisture, add a fresh squeeze of lime




If you like to make the taco seasoning yourself, try this combination!
