Cilantro & Lime Grilled Chicken Tacos
Portable Grill (optional)
Cilantro Lime Marinade:
- 4 boneless skinless chicken thighs, about 1 lb
- 2 tablespoons chopped cilantro
- 2 limes, juice + zest
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon chili powder
- 1 teaspoon cumin
- ½ teaspoon garlic powder
- ½ teaspoon ground coriander
- 1 tablespoon oil
- pico de gallo
Prepare the marinade: Mix the oil, lime juice + zest, cilantro, and spices together in a small bowl (this can be done at home). Place the chicken into a tupperware or sealable bag and pour the marinade over, shaking to ensure that the chicken is coated evenly. Marinate for at least 30 minutes (an hour is better), or up to two hours.
Prepare a grill or campfire for grilling.
Remove the chicken from the marinade and place it on the grill. Cook until the internal temperature reaches 165F, turning as needed to ensure even cooking (approx 5-8 minutes on each side). Remove from the heat and chop into bite-sized pieces.
To assemble the tacos, layer chicken, pico de gallo, cheese, and fresh cilantro into tortillas (warmed over the grill if you’d prefer!) and enjoy.
