  • Limey Chicken Tacos
  • ½ cup fresh lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 pound skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
  • Mango Salsa
  • 1 cup chopped mango
  • 1 cup chopped tomato
  • ½ cup finely chopped red onion
  • ¼ cup snipped fresh cilantro
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
  • 4½ inch thick onion slices
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil

  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. To prepare tacos: For marinade, in a shallow dish combine the ½ cup lime juice and the cumin. Add chicken, turning to coat. Cover and marinate in the refrigerator for 30 minutes, turning once.
  2. To prepare salsa: In a medium bowl stir together the mango, tomato, red onion, cilantro, and the 1 tablespoon lime juice. Set aside.
  3. Drain and discard marinade from chicken. Brush onion slices with olive oil. For a charcoal grill, place chicken on the grill rack directly over medium coals. Grill, uncovered, for 12 to 15 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink (170°F), turning once halfway through grilling. Halfway through grilling, add onion slices and grill for 6 to 8 minutes or until onion slices are tender, turning once halfway through grilling.
  4. To serve, slice chicken. Serve chicken in tortillas with the mango salsa. Serve with grilled onion slices.
  • Tip: To warm tortillas, preheat oven to 350°F. Wrap tortillas tightly in foil. Bake about 10 minute or until heated through.
  • Serve with Chili-Lime Jicama.
