Expert Tips

You can use white meat boneless skinless chicken breasts or dark boneless skinless thighs, which will have more flavors on the grill. The choice is up to you. Or mix both white and dark.

Be sure to use a slotted spoon when adding slaw to tacos, as it sits, it becomes more juicy with the dressing. You can drain off excess if you chose to.

Don’t overcook the tortillas and tacos shells. Keep in tortilla dish to keep soft.
