These grilled chicken tacos are full of fresh flavor! I love this recipe because it can be easily modified for the number of guests/family members you have. I honestly don't really measure the seasonings either but I love the combination of these spices with just a hint of the cinnamon! Yummy!

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Season chicken breasts with chili powder, garlic, cinnamon, and cumin.

  • Preheat an outdoor grill for medium heat and lightly oil the grate. Grill chicken breasts until no longer pink in the center, about 5 minutes per side. Cut grilled chicken into chunks or strips.

  • Mix avocados, cucumber, red onion, and lime juice together in a bowl.

  • Divide grilled chicken, avocado mixture, salsa, cabbage, cheese, and cilantro among warmed tortillas.

Cook's Notes:

You can also cut the chicken into chunks or strips and saute on the stovetop in a little olive oil.

Sometimes I saute onions, fresh garlic, and peppers and put those on. Sometimes I cut up orange peppers and add those. Use whatever you like to make it fresh!

Simple and straight forward just as a taco should be. Left out the cinnamon due to personal preference but by all means add it if you are not opposed to it. While I like the freshness and crunch the cucumber added it did seem out of place in my opinion. Hubs agreed. Pickled jalapeno would have been better. Overall good recipe though and one I would make again. Read More
