Ingredients in Street Tacos with Chicken:
- Boneless, skinless chicken thighs
- Minced garlic
- Cilantro lime marinade (you can buy these premade with the salad dressings & marinades!)
- Corn tortillas
How to make chicken street tacos:
Start by combining the seasonings and marinade in a bowl or gallon-size Ziploc bag. Mix well and add the chicken. Marinate for at least one hour but up to four hours. The longer you marinate, the more bold the flavor will be!
Next, grill the chicken thighs over medium heat. You'll want about 4-5 minutes per side.
Once your chicken is cooked, remove it from the grill and let it rest three minutes before chopping so you don't lose any of that juicy goodness. Then, chop into small, 1/2″ cubes.
Warm your corn tortillas in the microwave or on a skillet. Top the tortillas with the chicken and whatever toppings you like! I went with sliced avocado and finely diced white onion, but these would taste amazing with so many different toppings.
You can also skip the tortilla entirely and make your own chicken street taco salad!
