Grilled chicken tacos
Gluten Free, Soy Free
25 – 35 Minutes
Packed with crunchy cabbage, crisp radishes, sweet roasted red peppers, and marinated chicken (we aren’t kidding about “packed”), these are not your average cantina-style tacos. The marinade of tomato paste, lime, and ancho chile powder helps the chicken caramelize as it cooks, adding even more color and flavor—regardless whether you use a grill pan or skillet. The poblano and ancho chiles (fresh and dried versions of the same pepper, respectively) are both quite mild, but if you’re at all sensitive to spicy food, leave them out.
