Ingredients

  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into strips
  • 1 tablespoon taco seasoning
  • 2 bell peppers
  • 1 red onion, sliced
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil, divided
  • sea salt and black pepper, to taste
  • aluminum foil

Directions

Prep: 1. Preheat grill to medium-high. 2. Slice chicken, rub with taco seasoning. 3. Slice red onion. (leave peppers whole for now) Make: 1. Brush both sides of the onion rounds and whole peppers with 2 tablespoons oil. Season with salt and pepper. 2. Grill onions and whole peppers on the edges of the grill until spottily charred and crisp-tender, about 8-12 minutes, turning once or twice as needed. 3. Meanwhile, place chicken in the center of the grill and cook until it is well browned, 3-4 minutes per side. 4. When the chicken and vegetables are done, transfer them to a large plate and tent with foil to keep warm. 5. Slice the grilled peppers lengthwise into 1/4-inch strips and add them to the bowl with the onions. 7. Serve with your favorite taco garnishes.

Notes

This is great with the Taco Seasoning from the Gatheredtable library! - https://www.gatheredtable.com/recipes/173816 If you're making tortillas to go with this try warming them on the grill - Grill tortillas until warm and lightly browned, about 20 seconds per side. When the tortillas are done, wrap them in foil. If you have time, instead of rubbing the chicken with taco seasoning, you can marinade the chicken in a mix of : 1/3 cup freshly squeezed lime juice 4 tablespoons canola oil 3 cloves garlic, minced or pressed 1 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce 1 teaspoon brown sugar 1 jalapeno, seeded, ribbed and diced 1 1/2 tablespoon minced fresh cilantro 1 teaspoon salt 3/4 teaspoon pepper Check out our favorite tips for grilling here - http://blog.gatheredtable.com/2015/06/26/barbecue-basics/
