Using a quick citrus marinade, these grilled chicken tacos offer a blast of summer flavor. To make campsite prep easier, you can make the cilantro lime marinade ahead of time and store in a small container in your cooler.
Prepare the marinade: Mix the oil, lime juice + zest, cilantro, and spices together in a small bowl (this can be done at home). Place the chicken into an airtight container or sealable bag and pour the marinade over, shaking to ensure that the chicken is coated evenly. Marinate for at least 30 minutes (an hour is better), or up to two hours.
Prepare a grill or campfire for grilling.
Remove the chicken from the marinade and place it on the grill. Cook until the internal temperature reaches 165F, turning as needed to ensure even cooking (approx 5-8 minutes on each side). Remove from the heat and chop into bite-sized pieces.
To assemble the tacos, layer chicken, pico de gallo, cheese, and fresh cilantro into tortillas (warmed over the grill if you’d prefer!) and enjoy.
Serving Size: This will serve 4 with a side. For hungrier campers plan on this recipe feeding 2.
