Easiest Taco Chicken Ever

Prep Time 00:05 Cook Time 00:10 Total Time 00:15 Serves 4


  • 1 1/2 pounds boneless skinless chicken thighs, trimmed
  • 3 tablespoons taco seasoning blend
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice, (about 1/2 lime)
  • 1 tablespoon avocado oil


  1. Pat chicken dry to remove excess moisture and place into a bowl.
  2. Add 2-3 tablespoons of taco seasoning. If you are all about the flavor, add 3 tablespoons. If you have some picky kids (or adults), use 2 tablespoons.
  3. Add lime juice and mix well until chicken is coated.
  4. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Once hot, add chicken in one layer. Cook for about 10 minutes, flipping halfway through, until chicken is cooked through at 165ºF.
  5. Once done, remove and chop chicken as desired and place back into the skillet to coat with the spices.
  6. Serve immediately with your favorite taco toppings, or in a taco style salad.
