Grilled Taco Chicken

A while back, I was asked to create some recipes for Old El Paso. One of the recipes was required to utilize their seasonings. If you follow my site for very long, you probably know how I love the mix of sweet and spicy. So, I decided to make grilled taco chicken with a simple rub using their taco seasoning and some brown sugar.

When I created this, I cooked it on my outdoor grill. Outdoor grilling can still work in some areas of the U.S. but if you can’t grill, a grill pan will give you similar results. It was quite tasty and a family favorite now. This grilled taco chicken can be eaten as is or sliced up and placed on a salad or a tortilla. So give this quick and easy dish a try!
