BBQ Chicken Tacos are fusion food we can get behind. The sweet, tangy barbecue sauce on the chicken mixes with the cooling, creamy cilantro lime sauce for a truly elite flavor profile. Not to mention the warm corn tortillas it all comes wrapped in. BBQ Chicken Tacos are worth starting up the grill for on a weeknight.


Ingredients

For the chicken:
2 chicken breasts or thighs, boneless and skinless,
2/3 cup barbecue sauce, divided
Creamy cilantro lime sauce:
1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt
3 tablespoons fresh cilantro, chopped
1 tablespoon lime juice
1/4 teaspoon salt
For the tacos:
15 corn tortillas
1 cup cherry tomatoes, chopped
1/3 cup red onion, chopped
1 (15 ounce) can black beans, rinsed and drained
1 (15 ounce) can corn, drained
1 avocado, peeled, cored, and sliced
fresh cilantro, optional, chopped, for topping

Directions

Step 1

Add the chicken and 1/3 cup of the barbeque sauce to a resealable bag, massaging so the chicken is fully coated.

Step 2

Refrigerate for 1-3 hours.

Step 3

Combine the Greek yogurt, cilantro, lime juice, and salt, mixing until a smooth sauce forms.

Step 4

Refrigerate the sauce until ready to serve.

Step 6

Add the chicken to the grill and cook it until cooked through, about 4-5 minutes on each side, flipping once.

Step 7

Transfer the chicken to a cutting board, baste it with more BBQ sauce, and allow it to rest for 5 minutes before chopping.

Step 8

Warm the tortillas on the grill or in a hot skillet.

Step 9

Add a spoonful of the chopped chicken, cherry tomatoes, red onion, black beans, corn, avocado, and cilantro to each warm tortilla.
