🌮 Serrano Spiced Chicken Tacos Recipe
Serrano Spiced Chicken Tacos
You will need:
- 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
- 1/2 cup Yellowbird Serrano Sauce
- 1/2 cup fresh lime juice
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 teaspoon cumin
- Salt and pepper to taste
- 8 small corn tortillas
- 1 cup shredded lettuce
- 1/2 cup diced tomatoes
- 1/4 cup chopped cilantro
- 1/2 cup crumbled queso fresco
- Start by marinating the chicken. In a bowl, combine the Yellowbird Serrano Sauce, lime juice, minced garlic, cumin, salt, and pepper. Mix well.
- Add the chicken breasts to the marinade, ensuring they are fully coated. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours, or overnight for best results.
- After marinating, preheat your grill or skillet over medium heat.
- Cook the chicken on the preheated grill or skillet for 6-7 minutes on each side, or until the internal temperature reaches 165°F.
- Once cooked, remove the chicken from the grill or skillet and let it rest for a few minutes. Then, slice the chicken into thin strips.
- Warm the corn tortillas in a dry skillet over medium heat until they are pliable.
- Assemble the tacos by placing a layer of shredded lettuce on each tortilla, followed by the sliced chicken, diced tomatoes, chopped cilantro, and crumbled queso fresco.
- Serve immediately with extra Yellowbird Serrano Sauce on the side for those who want an extra kick.
For a vegetarian option, replace the chicken with grilled veggies or your favorite plant-based protein.
