I like making this simple dish anytime. What I like about tacos the most, is that it looks nice, colourfully, it is low in fats, so healthy. Also, I like that I can make easy chicken tacos for dinner, but also anytime to make a healthy snack.
If you have enough time, prepare your chicken meat combined with spices in advance a let it rest in the fridge for one hour at least. This will help chicken to absorb all the spices and taste better once cooked.
I also make it easy with serving my tacos. I arrange all the ingredients in the separate bowls. Then I place a warm chicken, tortillas and cream next to the served vegetables. I make so called “tacos bar”. It not only looks great nad fresh, full of different colours, but everybody can help yourself to create their tacos and bring it to the table on the serving plate and enjoy with others.
There are many variantions of what to fill your tacos with. I am sharing my favorite and simple combination of chicken, green salad, spring onions and homemade tomato salsa, topped with a dollop of a sour cream.
Tomato salsa made from fresh tomatoes, cannot miss on the homemade chicken tacos. I used to make it from a cherry tomatoes and habanero peppers. But be careful. Habanero makes your salsa quite hot. You don’t have to use it all, start with a little chopped habanero, taste for intensity, add more chopped habanero peppers if needed. If you prefer making a milder tomato salsa, use jalapeno peppers.
Prepare your fresh tomato salsa. This will add a special touch to your chicken tacos.
- Dice about 12 cherry tomatoes
- Dice 1 shallot
- Chop 1 habanero pepper
- Toss all the ingredients together well
- Add 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
- Add juice from 1/2 of lime
- Season with a pinch of sea salt and freshly ground black pepper/optional/
- Mix to combine
I hope you will enjoy making your homemade chicken tacos. Looking forward to reading your comments below!
