Home | Recipes | Mexican Classics | Quick & Easy | Tacos

In this Fried Chicken Tacos recipe we use boneless, skinless chicken thighs that have been marinated in our Smoky Chipotle Fajita & Taco Mix and then pan fry the chicken until it’s crispy for a delicious twist on your usual chicken tacos.

We highly recommend turning this dish into a taco platter with sides of our Smoky Chipotle Refried Beans and Mexican Rice and go all out with some Chips and Salsa. If you are entertaining a crowd, Vegetarian Quesadillas are a great addition.

Be sure to check out all our taco recipes. From more familiar ones such as Easy Beef Tacos and Turkey Mince Tacos to delicious and  authentic tacos including Baja Fish Tacos, Tacos Al Pastor, and Pork Pibil Tacos, we have tonnes of taco inspiration!
