*Gluten Free* Chicken Tacos – with avocado lime sauce

You probably stumbled on my site because you heard the word ‘tacos’, let’s be real. Just kidding…kind of. It is totally okay if that’s why you’re here though, I don’t blame you. And yes, you heard correctly. Today I am sharing my gluten free chicken taco recipe!

I totally threw stuff together the first time I made it and they turned out tasting absolutely amazing so I obviously had to make them again for you guys! And I would be lying if I said Mark and I didn’t eat this meal 2x in one week…it’s THAT good. As a Celiac it is hard to find a good Mexican restaurant that I can 100% trust to be gluten free so I was super thrilled when this meal turned out good.

As always, this recipe is good for you so you don’t have to feel crappy (no pun intended) afterwards (sorry Taco Bell). They are grain free, dairy free, and flat out mouthwatering! I hope you enjoy them as much as I did!

Instructions

Begin by placing the chicken breast tenderloins in a large sauce pan, fill with water until all the chicken is covered. Bring the water to a roaring boil. Once boiling, turn off heat and let the chicken sit covered for 15-20 minutes.

While the chicken is cooking, in a large frying pan, add in the avocado oil, chopped peppers and onions, and salt and pepper. Let them cook over medium heat until slightly charred.

For the sauce- in a bowl mash up the avocado and then add in the garlic, onion, cilantro, salt, pepper, and lime. The lime juice should be just enough to get it to a paste-like consistency. (Feel free to use a food processor for this step).

Once the chicken is finished cooking, shred it into a large bowl. After all the chicken is shredded, add in the chili, garlic, onion, and paprika. Toss to combine and coat the chicken.

When everything is finished cooking grab your grain free tortillas and evenly spread on the avocado lime sauce. Add your chicken and fajita veggies.

Add rice and black beans on the side or add them in your taco!
