  • 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


  • Pat chicken dry to remove excess moisture and place into a bowl.
  • 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.
  • Add lime juice and mix well until chicken is coated.
  • 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.
  • Once done, remove and chop chicken as desired and place back into the skillet to coat with the spices.
  • Serve immediately with your favorite taco toppings, or in a taco style salad.
