Pollo Asado tacos are bursting with juicy, marinated chicken and bright citrus flavor. Each bite is nestled in warm tortillas and topped with fresh salsa, avocado, and a burst of zesty lime.

what is pollo asado?

Pollo asado is Spanish for grilled chicken or roast chicken. Otherwise known as mouth watering!!


boneless skinless chicken thighs minced garlic spices - paprika - salt -  onion powder - dried oregano - chili powder - cumin - citrus juice - orange juice - lime juice – olive oil


Allow the chicken to sit in the marinade in the fridge for 2-4 hours, turning once during the process.


grill or cook on the stovetop until the chicken comes to an internal temperature of 165°F. Let rest, then cut into pieces.


These tacos taste perfect on some warm tortillas - I like corn tortillas but flour tortillas are amazing too! Serve alongside pico de gallo with lime wedges and maybe some Mexican pickled onions.

Tip: Place a stack of them on a plate and cover with a barely damp paper towel. Microwave for about 30 seconds or until warmed through. Serve and enjoy!
