Crispy Chicken Tacos

If you love a good taco, give these a try, the tortilla is just perfectly crispy. I made them with chicken, but any cut of meat works.

Length of time from start to finish: 55 min
Difficulty: Easy
  • 2 lbs boneless skinless chicken thighs
  • 16 large corn tortillas
  • Salsa
  • 16 small tomatillos
  • 4 garlic cloves
  • 3 serranos
  • 1/4 sweet onion
  • 2 tbsp cilantro
  • 1/4 cup water
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Here is a link to my seasonings use code Fire10

  • Cilantro
  • Onion

-Start by cubing the thighs to make them bite-size. Then season the chicken with your favorite poultry seasoning. Set aside and let it absorb all that good flavor.

-Now preheat the griddle on high.

-Once preheated, add the veggies for the salsa. Except for the cilantro. Once they are nicely charred, add to a blender with 1/4 cup of water and blend until smooth. Then pour in a bowl and add salt and pepper to taste.

Now let’s cook up the chicken. Keeping the heat on high, cook the chicken until it’s nicely charred, remove it and place it in another bowl.

-Now add some cooking oil to the griddle and place the tortillas. After one minute, flip them and fold them in half. Very carefully add the chicken to them, and add some more oil to the tortillas.

-Just a small amount to help them get nice and crispy. At this point turn the heat to low. After 4 or so min turn the tacos and leave an additional 4 min. They should be nicely crispy and browned. Remove the tacos and garnish with cilantro and onion, add salsa to your liking.

Add a squeeze of fresh lime to the tacos. You can use chicken breast, I just find it that chicken thighs don’t dry out as quickly as chicken breast.
