One of the best taco recipes out there! Chicken thighs are soaked in a bright, well seasoned marinade and grilled to perfection (you'll be fighting over those little charred crispy pieces). These chicken street tacos are so flavorful and so easy to make. I frequently serve these chicken tacos to guests and they always get compliments!
Add chicken to a gallon size resealable bag. In a small bowl whisk together lime juice, olive oil, garlic, cumin chili powder, cilantro, 1 tsp salt and 3/4 tsp pepper.
Pour mixture over chicken in bag then seal bag while releasing an trapped air. Rub marinade over chicken. Transfer to refrigerator and allow to marinate at least 1 hour and up to 6 hours
Preheat a grill over medium-high heat (it should come to 425 - 450 degrees).
Remove chicken from marinade and grill until chicken has cooked through , turning once halfway through grilling, about 5 - 6 minutes per side (thickest center should register 165 and thighs should be slightly charred).
Transfer to a plate, cover with foil and let rest 5 minutes.
Dice grilled chicken into cubes. Sprinkle chicken over 1 or 2 tortillas per taco then add an avocado slice, diced chicken, onions and cilantro.
Serve warm, spritzing each taco with lime juice and drizzling with hot sauce.
*Try homemade guacamole for another delicious option.
Stick with chicken thighs for best results. They're more tender and juicier, they brown better and they have better flavor.
