Taco Chicken

Taco Chicken
from Our Best Bites

1 lb. chicken breasts or thighs
a couple of juicy limes
a splash of red wine vinegar
2-3 cloves garlic, pressed or coarsely chopped
1 tsp chili powder
1/2 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp Kosher salt
1/2 tsp black pepper

1. Juice the limes and combine with a couple splashes of red wine vinegar. Add garlic. Pour over chicken. This will not completely cover the chicken; just turn it occasionally as needed. Marinate for at least 4 hours, no longer than 8.
2. Combine salt, chili powder, cumin, and black pepper in a small bowl. Remove chicken from marinade and rub the spices all over the chicken.
3. Grill on outdoor grill.
4. Remove from heat and allow to stand a few minutes so it doesn't lose its juiciness. You can either eat the chicken as it is, maybe with Mexican rice and beans, or slice it up and use it as you would taco meat.

I halved this recipe, only using 2 chicken breasts. We used the sliced meat for tacos and they were delicious!
