Chicken Tacos w/ Peach Salsa

By: 0

Boneless, skinless chicken breasts are not my favorite protein.  I prefer my meat the way it came — on a bone and with skin. They do have their place in some recipes. . . tacos anyone?  And it’s peach season, tickle your taste buds with this seasonal dynamic duo!

Ingredients

1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon smoked paprika
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 1/2 teaspoons rendered lard or bacon grease
3/4 cup diced peaches
1/2 cup diced avocado
1/2 cup chopped tomato
1/3 cup chopped Vidalia onion
1 1/2 tablespoons fresh squeezed lime juice
1 tablespoon minced jalapeno pepper
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
6 (6-inch) non gmo corn tortillas

Preparation

In a small bowl mix together the first 4 ingredients.  Rub over the chicken breasts.  Melt the lard or bacon grease in a cast iron skillet over medium heat.  Add chicken and cook 4-5 minutes per side or until just cooked through.

Remove from pan and let rest for 5 minutes.  Cut into 1/4″ slices.

While the chicken is cooking combine peaches and next 6 ingredients.  Stir well.

Heat tortillas according to package directions; fill with chicken and top with the salsa.
