This Sweet & Smoky Grilled Taco Grilled Chicken is a new favorite! Only 3 ingredients and no long marinating required! You can marinate the chicken overnight, but it isn’t necessary. Just rub the chicken with the seasoning and throw on the grill. I will tell you that I usually make this chicken before I go to bed at night and let it sit in the fridge overnight. I just find it easier to prep lunch or dinner the night before. BUT like I said, this is fine to just season and grill immediately.

This Sweet and Smoky Grilled Taco Chicken was a huge hit in our house. It had tons of great flavor and was super easy to make. We grilled extra chicken for leftovers. I had the leftovers in a wrap and topped it with salsa. O-M-G! I told Chicken Legs I might have liked the chicken in the wrap better than just plain. Seriously delicious!!

To cook chicken breasts without a grill, pan sear chicken for 3 to 4 minutes per side. Place chicken on a rimmed baking sheet. Bake at 400ºF for 10 minutes, until chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165ºF.
