So satisfying and full of bold flavors, you’re going to love these Chicken Tacos with a homemade zesty seasoning.
Today’s recipe is sponsored by Sargento® Cheese. All opinions shared are my own.
I was recently challenged to develop a Mexican recipe using chicken thighs, corn tortillas, Sargento 4 Cheese Mexican Blend and poblano peppers. I incorporated the poblano peppers in the cilantro lime poblano slaw – it’s a zesty and flavorful slaw that complements the chicken perfectly without overpowering it.
These were so amazing, I had to eat one before photographing, I just couldn’t help myself. 🙂
I browned the chicken in an oven-safe skillet a few minutes before baking them. Those chicken thighs were smelling good at this point!
I used a combination of herbs and spices in the shredded chicken thighs that are Mexican-inspired but not too spicy.
These tacos don’t need a lot of toppings because the slaw is so flavorful, but they’d also be great with avocados and sour cream.
This recipe makes about 8 very generous tacos. The Cilantro Lime Poblano Slaw recipe yields more than you’ll need for the tacos, but it keeps well in the fridge and is also great with seafood.
