Ingredients

  • 1 lb boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 8 small tortillas
  • 1 cup shredded lettuce
  • 1/2 cup diced tomatoes
  • 1/4 cup diced red onion
  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese

Instructions

  1. Start by marinating the chicken. In a bowl, mix the olive oil, chili powder, cumin, paprika, salt, and pepper. Add the chicken and coat it well. Allow it to marinate for at least 30 minutes.
  2. Heat a grill pan over medium heat. Cook the marinated chicken for about 6-7 minutes on each side, or until fully cooked.
  3. Remove the chicken from the heat and let it rest for a few minutes before slicing it into strips.
  4. Warm the tortillas in the grill pan for about 1 minute on each side.
  5. Assemble the tacos by placing a generous amount of sliced chicken onto each tortilla. Top with lettuce, tomatoes, red onion, cilantro, and cheddar cheese.
  6. Finish with a dollop of sour cream and a squeeze of fresh lime juice.
