the baker upstairs: taco chicken

taco chicken

Yum

Happy Friday! If you're following along with me on Instagram (which you totally should be!) then you know that we as a family are trying not to eat out for the next two weeks. I know that sounds like such a small goal, but between work, school, activities, and trying to keep the household running, we end up picking up fast food at least a couple of times each week. I'm so tired of wasting money on junky food, and I really want us to develop healthier habits as a family. So far we are five days in and doing well!


I actually made this taco chicken a few weeks ago and put it in the freezer for those nights when I just don't feel like cooking. (Hopefully doing a little prep work in advance will pay off in the end.) This chicken was super easy to make and so flavorful too! It's perfect for tacos, burritos, nachos... you name it! I used my new stovetop grill pan to make it but you could make it on an outdoor grill or even just sauté it on the stove. I have to confess, though, I'm kind of in love with those grill marks.


Taco Chicken

3-4 large chicken breasts (about two pounds), trimmed and cut into strips
1 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon chili powder
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
juice of one lime

Preheat a grill pan (or an outdoor grill or hot skillet). In a small bowl, whisk together the cumin, chili powder, garlic powder, salt, and black pepper. Sprinkle the spice mixture over the chicken and rub it in. Squeeze the lime juice over the top and toss to coat evenly. Cook on preheated grill pan 8-10 minutes per side, or until cooked through.

  1. I've been following your blog for awhile now, and I love all the recipes you post! The pictures are amazing too :) My family loves to grill so I will definitely be making this soon! Oh, and those wheat pancakes with berry syrup, my kids would love those too. Have a great weekend.
