I haven’t made this in a while but will be making this again….and again….have you noticed I eat a lot of chicken? Mainly cause it’s about the only meat i will eat.
This is a great marinade and basting sauce to use along with a leftover chicken that is good on salads. Place in your marinade the night before, put in cooler and take to your next tailgate – grill and have at it. Also, cut your chicken in cubes, marinade, put on skewers, and you have a great kabob!
Grilled Taco Chicken
4 skinless, boneless chicken breasts
2 Tbsp taco seasoning mix (and yes I will be using my homemade taco season mix – no store bought in my house!)
1 tsp dried oregano (can eliminate this if you use my homemade because it has it in there!)
2 Tbsp olive oil
1/2 cup salsa
1/2 tsp ground cumin (eliminate if you use my homemade taco season mix as mine has it in there)
1/4 cup BBQ sauce (your favorite brand (but I will be using my homemade recipe – of course!)
2 Tbsp chili sauce
Mix the marinade together in a gallon zip lock bag and place the chicken breasts in with the marinade. Mix well so that all the breasts are coated well. Refrigerate at least 4 hours or overnight.
When ready to grill chicken, mix the basting sauce together. Grill chicken, until just about done. Baste with sauce on both sides, and finish grilling for a couple of minutes more.
