Ingredients

For the Chicken:

  • 2 chicken breasts
  • 1 tablespoon taco seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon cooking oil
  • salt and pepper to taste

For the Tacos:

  • 6 corn tortillas
  • Toppings: lettuce corn (elote cut off the cob, plus extra sauce), pickled red onions, queso blanco or other cheese, cilantro, etc.

Instructions

For the Chicken:

  • Coat the chicken in oil and then sprinkle with taco seasoning and salt and pepper. Roll around so it's completely and evenly coated. Let sit while you preheat the grill to medium.
  • Refer to Mexican Street Corn recipe for the corn, saving some of the sauce for the tacos, or use another type of corn if you prefer. Prepare the rest of the toppings with whatever you like. I like bagged, shredded lettuce, pickled red onions, queso blanco (or other cheese and extra cilantro along with the grilled corn.)
  • Grill the chicken over medium, for about 9-10 minutes, flipping once until 165°F internally.
  • Let sit 10 minutes, then cut into slices.

For the Tacos:

  • Spread the sauce down the middle of each tortilla. Lay a few slices of the chicken on top, then the corn, pickled red onions and some cilantro. Or use other toppings if you like.
  • Serve immediately.
