Lime Cilantro Grilled Chicken Tacos

Another grilling recipe for this summer.  We love to use the grill as much as possible during summer.  We can pretty much do every meal right outside and keep it healthy and light.

  1. Those sounds great 🙂 now I am really craving some delicious chicken lime cilantro tacos for lunch!

  2. Those look fantastic! We love to grill all the time in the summer too. It seems we eat much healthier when we are able to throw everything on the grill and eat a short time later. Quick and easy and delicious. I’ll have to try out the lime cilantro chicken. Sounds like a burst of flavor that is perfect for summertime.

  10. Ah these look so good! I love taco night because it’s pretty quick and easy to make. I’ve never added lime or cilantro though…(though it’s delicious at chipotle). 🙂
    That rice looks great too – definitely have to try this.

  11. I’m currently waiting on dinner, so these made me even more hungry! I love tacos..I’d say chicken are my favorite though. I actually haven’t tried tacos with beef or pork. I like to fill mine with rice, lettuce, tomato, beans, chicken, and a bit of sour cream. I’ll have to try adding more toppings though like you did here!

  16. Ahhh I love the cilantro-lime combo! So tasty. I don’t usually grill my tacos but probably because I don’t own a grill….womp, womp. I do prefer mine with chicken though 🙂 So good.
