Yesterday I posted a recipe for chicken tacos that used a crockpot so today I am posting another version that uses grilled chicken. This recipe is a little spicy but not too bad ~ just go easy on the red pepper flakes if you don’t like spicy.
I mixed up the rub and dumped it in a ziplock bag, added the chicken and smooshed it around to cover the chicken. We had a thunderstorm when dinner time rolled around so I used my stove top grill pan to grill the chicken and it worked fine.
Grilled Chicken Tacos
2 tbsps chili powder
2 tbsps cumin
1 tbsp paprika
1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
1/4 tsp salt
1/8 tsp pepper
1 tbsp packed brown sugar
2 tbsps olive oil
2 1/2 lbs boneless, skinless chicken breasts, trimmed and pounded thin
16 soft taco size tortillas
Combine the chili powder, cumin, paprika, red pepper flakes, salt, pepper, and brown sugar in a small bowl. Mixture will look moist but will be crumbly.
Rub this mixture over all sides of the chicken breast and refrigerate for up to 1 day.
Grill chicken until thoroughly cooked and no pink remains. Let cool for 5 minutes and slice into thin strips.
Serve with warm tortillas and your favorite toppings.
