- 1 lb chicken tenders or substitute with thighs or breast
- 2 juiced limes
- 4 large minced garlic cloves
- 1 tbsp Lemon Pepper Seasoning
- 1/2 cup chopped cilantro
- 1/2 cup avocado oil
- 1 pint diced baby tomatoes
- 1/2 diced red onion
- 1 cup fire-roasted corn cooked from frozen
In a shallow dish, whisk together: juice of 2 limes, 4 minced garlic cloves, 1 tbsp lemon pepper seasoning, 1/2 cup chopped cilantro & 1/2 cup avocado oil.
Add the chicken and allow to marinate in the fridge for 4-12 hours.
Heat a large skillet over medium heat and add a few tbsp of avocado oil. Remove the chicken from the marinade and pan sear until golden brown and crispy on each side, about 4-5 mins per side. (Optional: grill the chicken)
Prep the rest of the ingredients by warming the tortillas on the stove and cooking the frozen corn.
Chop the chicken and assemble the tacos!
