Simple and quick chicken tacos made with chicken thighs, a simple onion and cilantro topping, and served on a corn tortilla. These are our all-time favorite taco recipe that taste like they just came off a food truck.
Taco Tuesday holds a strong place in my heart and in the hearts of my kids, but we have been in a major taco slump lately. The only thing I’ve been making is standard ground beef tacos and while those are fine, they just aren’t all that exciting after eating for them the the millionth time.
I decided to get a little creative in the taco department and go for some amazingly flavorful but simple food truck-style chicken taco recipes. You guys, they turned out amazing! It only took about 12 minutes to get the chicken cooked, a few more minutes to get the tortillas hot, and then we just threw them together.
These tacos are super simple in the fact that they are only made with some chicken meat (that is super delicious and full of flavor) and a simple onion/cilantro topping on corn tortillas. Give the whole thing a squeeze of lime before you eat them, and that’s a wrap! I feel like keeping them simple is what makes them taste like they are straight off of a food truck (you might also call them a street taco), because you’ll just pick them up and eat two. They aren’t fussy, they don’t have a lot of layers, and they are so full of flavor. You could add a bit of avocado or a sprinkle of cotija cheese, but those aren’t really needed. Keep it simple, friends!
