Grilled Taco Chicken

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

Marinade:

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)

Basting Sauce:

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.
