Soft Chicken Tacos

Using chicken thighs helps ensure that the meat doesn’t dry out when cooking – but feel free to use chicken breasts if that’s what you have on hand.  Serve these tacos with your favorite salsa.  Recipe makes 4 servings (3 tacos each).

What you’ll need:

  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 pound skinless, boneless chicken thighs
  • cooking spray
  • 12 (6-inch) corn tortillas
  • 1 1/2 cups thinly sliced cabbage
  • 1/4 cup Monterey-Jack cheese
  • low-fat sour cream or Greek yogurt

What you’ll do:

  • Heat grill or grill pan.
  • Combine the chili powder, salt, cumin and pepper in a small bowl.
  • Rub the spice mixture over the chicken.
  • Grill the chicken on the grill or grill pan that’s when coated with cooking spray for 10 minutes on each side or until down.
  • Let stand for 5 minutes then chop.
  • Heat the tortillas according to package directions.
  • Divide the chicken evenly between the tortillas.  Top with cabbage, cheese and sour cream, if desired.
