INSTRUCTIONS

Grilled Chicken:

  • In a bowl, stir together oil, lime juice, chili powder, cumin, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Pierce chicken breasts with a fork. Place in a large Ziploc bag. Pour marinade over chicken. Let marinate for at least 30 minutes. 4 – 5 hours is ideal. Preheat grill to medium heat. Brush grill with oil to prevent sticking. Place chicken on the grill. Cook for approximately 5 – 6 minutes per side, depending on the thickness of chicken. The internal temperature of the chicken should reach 165 degrees. Cut into pieces.

Street Corn Salad:

  • Cook corn and place corn kernels in a bowl. Stir in mayonnaise, lime juice, chili powder, cilantro, jalapeno, green onions, and garlic salt.

Assembling Chicken Tacos:

  • If using corn tortillas, heat a small amount of oil in a skillet. Place corn tortillas one-by-one in a skillet and soften in the oil for a few seconds. Remove and let drain on a paper-towel-lined plate.
  • Top with chicken, street corn, fresh avocado slices, and sprinkle with cotija cheese and cilantro.
