The perfect summertime grilling recipe. This Taco Lime Grilled Chicken is easy to make and full of flavor. Just three ingredients and a few minutes on the grill then dinner is ready.
I love grilling and I love tacos! This is why this Taco Lime Grilled Chicken is my favorite summer recipe.
You can slice it up and add it to tacos, eat it like a chicken breast, or we love serving it over cilantro lime rice.
No matter how you serve it you are going to love it. If you love taco recipes as much as I do then make sure to check out all my other favorite taco recipes next.
How to make Taco Lime Grilled Chicken:
- Place chicken into a large plastic bag.
- Add taco seasoning and the juice from both limes and the zest from one.
- Rub the chicken in a bag to mix seasoning.
- Place chicken in the fridge to marinate.
- Grill on medium heat until chicken is cooked through and safe temperature.
Do I have to marinate overnight?
You, of course, don't have to marinate it and can grill right away. The longer you marinate it the better your chicken will taste.
How to serve Taco Lime Grilled Chicken:
I serve this chicken with rice and corn salsa in a bowl. You can also slice it and put it into tacos!

Hi! Have you ever tried to bake the taco lime chicken? If so, what are those directions?
Hi Tiffany, yes this recipe is great baked also. Follow the directions to marinate then preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Place chicken in a dish and bake for 30-40 minutes or until chicken is fully cooked. Time will vary depending in the size of your chicken breast. For small chicken breast check the temperature around 20 minutes. Chicken should be over 165 degrees F before eating.
Perfect grilling recipe! So simple to make, we sliced it up and adding it to rice.
