Everything else on these Simple Tequila-Infused Chicken Tacos is just window dressing.
I could literally eat the chicken by itself in bite after bit of soft delicious-nirvana.
Also, I kind of love this chicken.
Sorry. (not really)
So, my best tip for this is to plan ahead and just toss the chicken and marinade together the night before, or even in the morning before you leave for work.
That way it has a good, long time to get the alcohol all the way into every bite of the chicken.
Also, if you don’t like tequila, probably not the best idea to make Simple Tequila-Infused Chicken Tacos. Just sayin’.
Maybe you should stick with plain-jane tacos of awesome.

Simple Tequila-Infused Chicken Tacos
- 4 deboned chicken breasts
- 1/2 cup tequila
- 1/2 cup water
- 4 tblspn lime juice
- 1 tblspn homemade taco seasoning
- 3 small tomatoes
- 1 large avocado
- 1 cup chopped lettuce
- 1 tblspn sour cream
- 2 small radishes I don't normally radish, but I visited the local farmer's market and couldn't help myself
- 2 tblspn olive oil
- 4-6 flour tortillas
In a zipper baggie, add chicken, 1/2 of the lime juice, water and tequila.
Allow this to marinate overnight or for a few hours. Whatever.
Over medium heat, place the olive oil and, when oil is hot, add the chicken.
Flip the chicken when one side is browned slightly, then add the remaining lime juice to the chicken.
While that's cooking, chop the tomatoes and slice the avocado.
When the chicken is cooked on both sides, slice into lengths.
In the tortilla, layer chicken, tomatoes, chopped lettuce and avocados.
Drizzle a little sour cream on top.
