*Needs to marinate 8 hours or overnite* I haven't seen a Chicken Taco recipe quite like this posted, so I thought I'd share. I found this while searching for diabetic recipes.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large resealable plastic bag or shallow glass container, combine the first 7 ingredients.
  2. Add chicken and turn to coat.
  3. Seal or cover and refrigerate 8 hours or overnight, turning occasionally. Drain and discard marinade.
  4. Grill chicken, uncovered, over medium heat for 5 to 7 minutes on each side or until juices run clear.
  5. Cut into thin strips; serve in tortillas or taco shells with desired toppings.

Best chicken tacos Ive ever had! I've made them 4 times already!

The marinade is slap-yo-mama good. It has so many good things going on with it. Also used the same marinade with shrimp minus the lime ('cause lime cooks the shrimp, don't want a ceviche). Also, for authentic eating, I used corn tortillas, topped it with cilantro, minced unyun, and a squirt of lime juice. This is a keeper.

My son is disable and tacos are difficult to I turned this into a taco salad with a lime vinaigrette! Yummy. After making this a couple of times, we decided we would like a little salt in the added that and it was perfect for us! Thanks for the great recipe. It is now a permanent part of our refreshing and light.
