We love tacos, any time, any kind, the boys seldom let me get one, unless I snatch one in the process of cooking them. So today, early, before they try to Shanghai my kitchen, I will make em' and put back enough meat so I can have a couple for myself, Hey, the cook deserves to eat too...right? There are a number of ingredients in the marinade, increase or decrease at your discretion. Grilled, broiled or sautéed, they are so good.

How to Make Spicy Soft Shell Chicken Tacos, Iris

Step-by-Step

  1. Take chicken breast and dice into 1-2 inch cubes, partially frozen makes for easier cutting.
  2. For grilling or broiling leave breast whole, and lightly prick with a fork so the chicken can absorb the marinade.
  3. Place all ingredients in a large sealable Container or bag with the exception of sour cream and white cheese, and onions.
  4. Add the chicken and let it sit in the marinade 2-4 hours.
  5. Remove chicken from marinade, and cook chicken til juices run clear. Don't let the breast overcook, we want them juicy.
  6. Warm tortillas, place desired amount of chicken into each tortilla garnish with cheese, onions, cilantro and lime.
