*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.

The only reason I give it 4 stars is because I didn't try it (I'm a vegetarian). It was clearly a winner with 4 boys aged 7-10 and 44 years old. They devoured it and my "picky eater" commented on the sweetness/tanginess of the lime. I only marinated for 3 hours and didn't measure anything but used all liquids/spices included in the recipe. I'll definitely make this again and actually measure and wait overnight. I'm not the best about pre-planning!
