  • 12 corn tortillas gluten-free if needed
  • 3 cups prepared salsa
  • Avocado sliced or guacamole
  • Red cabbage thinly sliced
  • Jalapeno slices
  • Juice of 2 limes
  • 1 handful fresh cilantro coarsely chopped

Chicken Marinade

  • 1 cup pineapple juice
  • 1/4 cup fresh lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon fresh oregano or 3/4 tsp dry
  • 1 teaspoon lime zest
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • Pinch of cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/3 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 2 lbs boneless skinless chicken breasts cut into bite-size
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste


  • In a mixing bowl, whisk together all the marinade and chicken ingredients. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and marinate it overnight in the refrigerator.
  • Preheat your grill. Grill the chicken over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until the chicken is browned and cooked through, about 10-15 minutes total, depending on the size of the chicken pieces. Set aside when done.
  • Warm the tortillas on the grill, about 20 seconds per side.
  • Add red cabbage and chicken in a warm tortilla. Top with salsa, guacamole, jalapeno, and cilantro. Serve with lime wedges.
