Fresh Chicken Breast grilled over charcoal or a gas grill is the base for these delicious tacos. Our Family prefers flour tortillas but corn would work as well. We typically use our meat tenderizer to ensure all the breast meat is approximately the same thickness. There are several marinades that can help season your chicken. We like Mesquite Chicken Marinade for its garlicy smoky flavor. Salt and Pepper the meat after pounding it to a consistent thickness. We usually put the pounded breasts into a ziplock bag with the marinade and consider it adventure ready.


Once the Chicken is grilled, it ready for dicing and assembly. We like to brown the flour tortillas in a hot skillet. Our go to accessories for this Grilled Chicken Taco party are slices of fresh avocado, cilantro sprigs, roasted tomatoe salsa,
