Grilled taco chicken

Hi – I’m checking in with another non-recipe recipe. I figure it is the week after the 4th and everyone is looking to detox with some healthy eats. I randomly mixed this up and let it marinate overnight and the results the next day were excellent so I wanted to share my method with you. Feel free to use your favorite spices to make this your own!


Grilled Taco Chicken

  • Chicken breast(s)
  • Chunky salsa
  • Ground chili powder
  • Ground cumin
  • Granulated garlic
  • Onion flakes
  • Black pepper
  • Red pepper flakes
  • Dried oregano

Coat your chicken breast in spices of your choice. Cover each side of the chicken. Next, cover with salsa. Let marinade overnight in the fridge. Grill the next day letting any extra hunks of salsa fall through the grill grates. Serve on a salad or along with fresh veggies. The spices give the chicken a nice kick while the salsa keeps it super moist and juicy.


Bonus? The salsa adds hardly any calories. I topped my chicken with a thin slice of cheese and fresh onions and tomatoes. Enjoy!
