Grilled Chicken Taco Recipe


These grilled chicken tacos with creamy avocado cilantro dressing are the perfect light meal, packed with flavor and freshness but easy to make. To make these tacos start with marinating the chicken. Of course, you can change it up if you would like and use a different type of meat, fish, and beef work really well here. I’m using 2 skinless and boneless chicken breasts which will be enough to feed 4 people or make about 8 tacos.

Start by placing the chicken in between a sheet of non-stick cooking paper and using a heavy object like a rolling pin to pound out the chicken. Focus on the thicker side, you want to thin it out so the chicken will cook as evenly as possible.
