Equipment

  • BLACK+DECKER Family-Sized Electric Griddle with Warming Tray & Drip Tray, GD2051B

Ingredients

FOR THE ONION SALSA:

  • 1 large white onion finely diced
  • 1 jalapeño minced (remove seeds and ribs for less heat)
  • 1 large garlic clove minced
  • 1 handful cilantro minced
  • 1 pinch kosher salt
  • 1 lime juiced

FOR THE CHICKEN STREET TACOS:

  • 1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 pound boneless skinless chicken thighs
  • tablespoons street taco seasoning
  • olive oil spray or avocado oil spray
  • 18 soft corn tortillas

Instructions

MAKE THE ONION SALSA:

  • In a medium bowl, add onion, jalapeño, garlic, cilantro, salt and lime juice.
  • Toss to combine and set off to the side.

MAKE THE TACOS:

  • Using a sharp chefs knife, finely mince the chicken and add to a large bowl. This takes about 25 to 30 minutes.
  • Season with street taco seasoning and toss to combine.
  • Spray a large 12-inch skillet with olive oil or avocado oil spray over medium-high heat.
  • Once hot, add in the seasoned chicken and spread into an even layer. Cook, stirring occasionally until no longer pink and fully cooked. About 12 to 15 minutes.
  • Season with salt to taste.
  • Meanwhile, heat a large griddle on high and lightly spray with olive or avocado oil spray.
  • Once hot, gently warm and toast the corn tortillas.
  • Fill the tortillas with the street taco chicken and top with the onion salsa and any other desired toppings.
