Description

These chicken tacos are super simple to make, but man are they good! They have a fiery sauce that really gives them a lot of flavor, and the chili onion rings are a fun garnish. Try these tacos tonight and your family will beg you to make them more often!

Ingredients

1 1/4 pound(s) skinless, boneless chicken breast
1/4 cup(s) garlic-lime marinade
3/4 teaspoon(s) ancho chili powder
1/2 teaspoon(s) salt
1/4 teaspoon(s) freshly ground black pepper
1 can(s) mexicorn (11-ounce) rinsed, drained
1/4 cup(s) fire-roasted salsa verde
1/4 cup(s) diced red onion
2 tablespoon(s) chopped fresh cilantro
1 tablespoon(s) fresh lime juice
1/2 cup(s) french-fried onion rings
8 yellow- and blue-corn taco shells
Shredded romaine lettuce for garnish

Preparation

In a medium bowl, toss chicken with marinade, 1/2 teaspoon of the chili powder, salt, and pepper.
In a medium bowl, mix mexicorn, salsa verde, onion, cilantro, and lime juice, tossing to combine.
Prepare an outdoor grill or heat a stovetop grill pan over medium heat. Cook chicken 3 to 4 minutes per side until cooked through. Remove from grill.
Meanwhile, in a skillet over medium heat, toss onion rings with the remaining 1/4 teaspoon chili powder; heat, stirring, until warm, about 3 minutes.
Cut chicken into 1/2-inch pieces. Fill each taco shell with chicken, dividing evenly. Top each with 2 tablespoons of the corn mixture and 2 tablespoons of the onion ring mixture. Garnish with lettuce.

I made these last night and they were awesome. I left out the cilantro (I don't care for it) but they still were very tasty. Thanks for the recipe!

Made these and they were absolutely delicious. I left out the corn since I don't really like corn but, other than that, incredibly tasty and quite easy to make compared to many other dishes.

These look awesome!! Simple, tasty ingredients and this dish is quite healthy. I have had blue corn taco shells a few times (and tortilla chips) and they have a much thicker density, which is really great for tacos, etc as regular shells break pretty easily. It looks like these would pack a taco shell to the max, so the blue corn is a good choice. Looking forward to trying these, Sarah!

I have not made these yet but am wondering if the garlic-lime marinade is a liquid or a packet marinade and what section of the supermarket I would find it. Thanks for your help.
