Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist

  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Transfer chicken to a baking dish.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until no longer pink in the center, 45 minutes to 1 hour. Remove from the oven and shred chicken with 2 forks; discard bones.

  • Place cabbage in a bowl and pour 1/3 of the lime juice over top; toss until cabbage is glossy.

  • Smash avocados in a bowl for guacamole. Mix in 1/4 of the remaining lime juice and season with salt and pepper.

  • Warm tortillas in a skillet over medium-low heat, 2 to 3 minutes. Layer tortillas with chicken, cabbage, green onions, cilantro, guacamole, sour cream, and salsa and drizzle with remaining lime juice.

Cook's Notes:

Undiluted limeade concentrate can be used instead of lime juice if you like. You can use canola oil instead of vegetable oil.

You can also add cilantro, finely chopped tomato, and onion to guacamole as well.

You can grill the chicken instead of baking if you prefer.

The recipe title is for baked chicken but in the cook's notes the recipe submitter mentioned the chicken could be grilled instead of baked. When given the option, I will always choose the grill over the oven. This is an excellent recipe! The marinade is very flavorful and really comes through. It also makes for some extremely tender chicken. I only had time to let it marinate for just over an hour and it was plenty. The one thing I did not love about the recipe was the cabbage. It needed more than just lime sprinkled over it. Maybe some salt? No biggie since the chicken was the star. I will definitely make this recipe again. Read More
