How to Make Garlic Lime Grilled Chicken Tacos


Today on The Stay At Home Chef I’m
showing you how to make Garlic Lime Grilled Chicken Tacos These chicken tacos are super easy to make and they’re also super delicious!
I’ve taken my fan favorite recipe for garlic lime chicken and turned it into a
grilled chicken taco wonder. You’re gonna love it!
To start you’ll need to place 6 boneless skinless chicken thighs into a
ziploc bag or you can do this in a shallow bowl. Or instead of chicken
thighs you can also use chicken breasts Then we’re gonna get a little marinade
going starting with 3 tablespoons of freshly squeezed lime juice, 3
tablespoons of olive oil, 1 teaspoon of garlic powder, 3/4
teaspoon of salt, 1/2 teaspoon paprika 1/2 teaspoon of dried parsley,
1/4 teaspoon of black pepper, add a kick with 1/4 teaspoon of
cayenne pepper and then last of all 4 cloves of minced garlic . We’re gonna seal
this up and squish this around so that all of the chicken gets evenly coated with
the spices and everything that’s in our marinade. Then we’ll pop this in the
fridge and let it marinate for 30 minutes to 1hour. In the meantime
you’ll want to get an outdoor grill heating to high heat which is between
400 and 500 degrees Fahrenheit Then we’ll go ahead and get our chicken
grilling. They really take about, oh, 3-4 minutes per side before you need to
transfer them off of this direct heat to finish cooking but the actual cooking
time really depends on the size of your chicken thighs. Now once your chicken is
off the grill you’ll want to chop it into little bite-sized pieces for tacos. Then you’ll also want a variety of toppings ready like freshly chopped
cilantro, red onion, tomatoes, lime… You could also do avocado, some cotija or
queso fresco… it’s really up to you. Then it’s just a matter of whether you’re
gonna use corn tortillas or flour tortillas I’m just gonna heat up some
flour tortillas really quick and since the grill is already hot we might as
well do it on the grill. Put it all together and you are ready to eat! Thanks for watching! You can find the

  3. You always add a kick to my day. Thank you so much. I have struggled for a while to make healthy, delicious and easy to follow meals for my family and you were recommended on my home page, and I couldn’t be happier to have found your channel. Thank you for your time, experience and fun ways of making food fun instead of hard work.

  4. TIP: The best authentic Mexican Flour tortillas can be found in Costco! Caveat: They do have to be cooked in a pan…but they taste JUST like the heavenly flour tortillas that authentic Mexican taco shops make their burritos in! After we tasted these…we never bought grocery-store tortillas from Albertsons, nor Vons, Smart & Final, nor Food4Less. The ones from Costco have a package lettering that is brown. They do have an "organic" one that has green lettering…but to me that just means it's $1–$2 dollars more! lol Get the brown. ❤️

  5. Aren’t tacos just so amazing and a easy meal. As we say in Spanish “Delicioso”🤤🇲🇽 thanks for this recipe I am so going to try it

  6. Will you Marry Me?? I'm an old fart,so if I eat everything you make, at my age I won't live 6 months. Its a win win…….LOL.. Great Channel keep up the great work!!!!!

  7. The acidity in the lime really draws out hormone disrupting chemicals out of the plastic bag. Yum yum
    Just use glass and non factory farm chicken
