Ingredients

  • 4 medium chicken breasts boneless, skinless
  • 1/4 cup fresh mint I use stems and leaves
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground pepper
  • juice and zest of 1 lime about 2 tablespoon juice and 1 teaspoon zest, more is okay
  • 1- ounce white rum
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 8 to 10 6-inch tortillas flour or corn
  • spring mix lettuce or your favorite lettuce
  • sour cream
  • Strawberry Avocado Salsa see link in post for recipe
  • one squeeze of lime juice on each taco
  • one squeeze of Sriracha sauce on each taco

Instructions

  • Combine mint, salt, pepper, lime juice, lime zest, rum, and olive oil in a zip top bag.
  • Muddle or crush to release mint oil and flavor.
  • Add chicken and marinate in refrigerator 1 hour.
  • Preheat grill to 400 degrees.
  • Place chicken breast on the grill. Cook 4 to 5 minutes on the first side before turning.
  • Turn and cook another 3 to 4 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 160 degrees.
  • Remove chicken from grill and allow to rest 4 to 5 minutes before slicing.
  • Slice chicken and place 3 to 4 pieces in the tortilla.
  • Top with lettuce, strawberry avocado salsa and other toppings of your choice.
  • Serve immediately.

Notes

  • Prep time is less than 10 minutes, however, allow time for the chicken to marinate. I suggest one hour, but not more than 2 hours.
