Grilled Lemon Chicken Street Tacos

Bust out the grill! This recipe has all the flavors of that favorite neighborhood taco truck in one healthy little package.

Limoneira's Grilled Lemon Chicken Street Tacos


  • 2 Limoneira classic lemons
  • 2 chicken breasts
  • 2 mild green peppers
  • Salt and pepper
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • Taco shells
  • Diced onion
  • Fresh cilantro

Directions: Marinate the chicken. Add two chicken breasts to a bowl, cut in half. Add salt and pepper. Add mild green peppers, cut in half to bowl. Cut lemons in half and juice them into bowl with chicken and peppers. (For extra flavor, add a bit of zest to the bowl.) Add ¼ cup of olive oil for best lemon-to-olive oil ratio. Mix ingredients together and cover on counter for two hours while ingredients marinade, or leave covered in fridge overnight for a stronger infusion.

Next, grill the marinated chicken and peppers on medium high for about 5 minutes per side. The internal temperature of the chicken should reach at least 165 degrees Fareinheit. Once grilled, chop or shred and serve on warm tortillas (taco shells). Top with diced onion and cilantro to taste and serve.
