Chicken Tacos


Plan ahead when making this, as it needs to refrigerate 8 hours or overnight.


  • 1/3 cup olive or vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup lime juice
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh parsley or 1 teaspoon dried parsley flakes
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (1 1/4 pounds)
  • 6 (8-inch) flour tortillas or taco shells, warmed
  • Toppings of your choice


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

Serves 6.
