taco spiced chicken
This recipe caught my attention on the Betty Crocker web site.
We had it tonight and sliced up the planned-overs to have next week on bbq chicken pizza. So they are in the freezer now waiting to be the star again.
Love that kind of dinner :)
2 tablespoons Old El Paso® taco seasoning mix (or use Homemade Taco Seasoning Mix)
1 teaspoon dried oregano leaves
4 boneless skinless chicken breasts (about 1 1/4 lb)
1 tablespoon olive or vegetable oil
1/4 cup barbecue sauce
2 tablespoons chili sauce
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
Heat gas or charcoal grill. In shallow bowl, mix taco seasoning mix and oregano. Brush chicken with oil; sprinkle with taco seasoning mixture.
Place chicken on grill over medium heat. Cover grill; cook 10 to 15 minutes, turning once, until juice of chicken is clear when center of thickest part is cut (170°F).
Meanwhile, in small microwavable bowl, mix barbecue sauce, chili sauce and cumin. Cover; microwave on High 30 to 60 seconds or until hot. Serve sauce over chicken.
Makes 4 servings
So, I put the taco seasoning and oregano mixture on the chicken in the morning and then placed it in the fridge till dinner. I also doubled the sauce mixture and put some aside to baste the chicken with while it was on the barbecue.
This was simple and flavourful. I will make it again.
