Limey Chicken Tacos
Mango Salsa


Instructions Checklist
  • To prepare tacos: For marinade, in a shallow dish combine the 1/2 cup lime juice and the cumin. Add chicken, turning to coat. Cover and marinate in the refrigerator for 30 minutes, turning once.

  • To prepare salsa: In a medium bowl stir together the mango, tomato, red onion, cilantro, and the 1 tablespoon lime juice. Set aside.

  • 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 degrees 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.

  • 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 degrees F. Wrap tortillas tightly in foil. Bake about 10 minute or until heated through.

Serve with Chili-Lime Jicama.
