Worlds Best Mexican Grilled Chicken

I LOVE this grilled chicken.  It’s my go to chicken for salads, tacos and burrito bowls.  I served this last night at my daughter’s birthday party to be used for tacos and it went faster than the beef.  That is saying something.  I always make 3 pounds at a time because it never goes bad.

It is also SO FREAKING EASY.  I felt a little embarrassed by all of the compliments I got because this could not be easier.

Ingredients

  • 3 lbs boneless skinless chicken thighs
  • 2 tbsp
  • 1 tbsp cumin (I use 1/2 ground cumin, 1/2 cumin seed)
  • 1/2 tsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • lime wedges and cilantro for garnish (optional)

Instructions

  1. Preheat your grill.
  2. Remove chicken from its packaging. Allow any juices from the chicken to drip off before placing it in a large bowl
  3. Add the remaining ingredients and mix them together with the chicken.
  4. Grill the chicken for about 3 minutes on the preheated grill.  Rotate 90 degrees  to create a crosshatch pattern and grill for another 3 minutes.  Flip the chicken and grill for about 3-4 minutes depending on the thickness of the thighs.
  5. Allow chicken to rest, and then cut into strips or cubes.
