Chicken Tacos with Yogurt-Lime Sauce

Recipes

August 2, 2019

These chicken tacos recipe is one of my go-to family dinners when I want something quick and requires less cooking. I make my homemade taco mix which can be made kid-friendly by putting less chili in it. These tacos are super easy to make but really flavorful in every bite.

To serve, just add fresh lettuce, tomatoes and avocadoes plus a simple yogurt-lime sauce for that tangy finish.

Hope you will love this recipe as much as me and my boys did!

Taco mix

  • 2 teaspoons smoked paprika
  • 2 teaspoons oregano
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 2 teaspoons onion powder
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper

Taco sauce

  • 1/4 cup greek yogurt

To serve

  • mixed lettuce

Instructions

  • Pre-heat oven at 200 degrees Celsius.

On a baking tray, arrange the chicken thighs and sliced capsicum, then drizzle with olive oil, and rub both sides of the chicken with the taco seasoning. Sprinkle also some on the capsicums. Bake for 15-18 minutes until browned. Set aside to cool down and then slice the chicken into strips. You can also cook this on stovetop using a skillet or grill pan.
