Chicken Tacos

Tacos don’t have to be greasy or take hours to prepare. They can also be fresh and healthy tacos, like the ones in Mexico which people have as everyday meals. Sometimes quick chicken tacos, with homemade guacamole and pico de gallo is all you need.

This healthy taco recipe is perfect to make on any day of the week. With a bit of help from our Smoky Chipotle Fajita and Taco Mix you can make a quick marinade for your chicken, followed by some Soft Tacos Wraps to serve it in.

The guacamole and pico de gallo are just the perfect easy, fresh and tasty additions to finish up these chicken tacos nicely. We also recommend trying our Tomatillo Salsa or Chipotle Salsa with this chicken taco recipe.

So give these easy grilled chicken tacos a try and let us know what you think!

Tip: If it’s a warm summer’s day and you have some time, why not get that chicken grilling on a barbecue!

How to make it

  1. Begin by marinating your chicken. Add the Smoky Chipotle Fajita and Taco Mix onto your chicken breasts with the juice of 1 lime, 1 tbsp of olive oil, a pinch of salt and freshly ground black pepper. Make sure all your meat is coated with the quick marinade.
  2. Get the barbecue going or heat up a cast-iron skillet with the remaining olive oil. Grill or pan-fry your chicken and let it get a bit of colour on both sides. Finish cooking it covered with a lid to allow it to cook fully without getting dry.
  3. Once ready, remove from the heat and cut the chicken into strips with a sharp knife and reserve.
  4. Prepare a quick guacamole by adding the avocado flesh into a bowl and mashing it roughly with a fork. Add the jalapeño, extra virgin olive oil, onion, pinch of salt and freshly ground black pepper, mix and set aside.
  5. In a different bowl prepare a quick pico de gallo. Mix the tomatoes, onion, extra virgin olive oil, lime juice, coriander, salt and pepper.
  6. Serve your tacos with warm Soft Taco Wraps, a bit of chicken, a good amount of guacamole and pico de gallo. Finally don’t forget to try some Gran Luchito Salsas!
