Spice Rubbed Chicken Breast Tacos

I wanted to share a really great and healthy recipe. It’s one of Bobby Flay’s from www.foodnetwork.com. Since it was cold and rainy today, we actually made the chicken on our George Foreman grill instead, but it was still amazing. It’s crispy and juicy with just the right seasonings. Enjoy!

Spice Rubbed Chicken Breast Tacos

– 2 tablespoons chili powder
– 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
– 2 teaspoons ground cumin
– 2 teaspoons light brown sugar
– 2 teaspoons kosher salt
– 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
– 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (8 ounces each)
– Canola oil
– 8 flour tortillas

Heat the grill to high.

Whisk together the chili powder, cinnamon, cumin, brown sugar, 1 teaspoon salt and black pepper in a small bowl.

Season top side of the breasts with the rub mixture, turn over and season the back with the remaining salt. Drizzle with some of the oil and place on the grill, rub side down and grill until lightly golden brown and a crust has formed, about 3 minutes. Turn the chicken over, close the lid and continue cooking until just cooked through, about 6 minutes longer. Remove from the grill and let rest 5 minutes before slicing.

Grill the flour tortillas briefly, just to mark and heat. Build the tacos to your liking and enjoy!

  1. We made these tonight for dinner! They were delicious! We busted out the grill for the season! Yah! Sadly the tank of gas for the grill was empty so we went to plan B and had to bake the chicken in the oven on a metal rack over a cookie sheet, but still yummy!
    Thanks for the recipe! 🙂 It was super easy.
