Chicken Lettuce Tacos
Ok, I realize it looks like WTH tacos, but I promise they buttoned up nicely when in hand. These tacos had a light, delicate fresh taste with simple ingredients. The chicken tacos were done in the early days of Uglyade. Was beginning to realize Uglyade is not only a marinade but a great salad dressing too.
- 2 lb chicken breast about 3-4
- ¼ cup Uglyade
- 1/4 tsp salt to taste
- 1/4 tsp pepper
- 12 oz head of lettuce
- 4 oz avocado
- 8 oz bell pepper orange, or red
- 1/2 cup purple onion
- 5 oz cherry tomatoes
- 1 cup cilantro chopped
- 2 oz Uglyade
In a bag marinade chicken breast in salt, pepper, and Uglyade for at least 2 hours.
I baked these in Pyrex at 350 for 40 minutes. If juices run clear your chicken is done.
Let cool and cut into strips against the grain. If you see pink in chicken reheat in microwave for a minute, check, and repeat until chicken is all white.
Taco Part Prep
Wash all veggies.
Pull several good sized leaves of lettuce off head. Optionally cut thick part of vein off.
Cut purple onion and bell pepper into ¼ inch strips
Cut tomatoes in half.
Cut avocado like above or in cubes. Either will work.
Chop up some cilantro.
Place a lettuce leave in hand.
Add chicken, bell pepper, onion, 2-3 tomato halves, avocado and chopped cilantro.
When you get all your tacos made drizzle Uglyade
Add as much or as little as you want but note a lettuce leaf can only hold so much.
