Grilled Taco Chicken
1 pound Boneless, skinless chicken breasts or thighs
2 tablespoons taco seasoning
2 cloves garlic minced
1 tablespoon olive oil

To Assemble
8 leaves Romaine Lettuce rinsed
1 avocado diced
1 tomato diced
¼ cup onion diced

Cilantro Sauce
½ cup loosely packed cilantro
¼ cup Greek Yogurt or sour-cream or mayo
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 jalapeno optional
1 clove garlic minced
Juice of 1 lime
Pinch of salt

To Cook Chicken

Add the chicken, garlic, olive oil, and spices in a large bowl or zip-seal bag. Place in fridge and let marinate for at least 15-30 minutes or up to 24 hours (you can also use right away if you’d like!). Place chicken on a grill or pan heated to medium-high heat. Let chicken cook until it is no longer pink on the inside, about 6-7 minutes per side (or until it has reached an internal temperature of 165 degrees F).

To Make Cilantro Sauce
Place all the ingredients in the food processor and blend for 1 minute or until creamy.
