Chicken Tacos


Chicken -- 

1-2 thick chicken breast
 

2 garlic cloves, minced 
2 tablespoons of olive oil 
1/4 teaspoon of salt 
1/4 teaspoon of pepper 
juice of half of one lime 
pinch of red pepper flakes 

Mix all of the ingredients in a bowl and then marinate the chicken for 30 minutes to 1 hour for more flavor. The long it sits the better. 

When ready to cook, heat a cast iron skillet or non-stick pan over medium-high and grill the chicken until brown about 6-8 minutes. Shred chicken with two forks. The trick to chicken is to not over cook. There should not be any pink, but chicken continues to cook after it's removed from the pan. You want that juicy flavor! 
I also heat my tortillas on the pan for a few minutes on each side to bring out some extra flavor. 

Assemble tacos (options) -- 

Tortilla Shells 
Chicken
Cheese 

Lettuce 
Fresh Salsa 
Cilantro 
Hot Sauce 
Corn 
Avocado

Enjoy!
