15-Minute Chicken Tacos


Y’all, these chicken tacos have been the #1 item on our meal rotation lately, so let me tell you why. They’re delicious, make great leftovers, are easy to make, and only need six ingredients! Do I have your attention? Read on for the quick, delicious recipe.ChickenTacos1

One of the best things about these tacos is how quick they are to prepare! They’re perfect for nights that we work out when Louis gets home, because after our run, I can still have dinner ready in under 30 minutes without any previous prep! They don’t even need to marinate like most other recipes I’ve found.


You will need:

  • 1 lb White Chicken Meat
  • 1 Medium Onion
  • 3 Garlic Cloves
  • 1 Tablespoon Ground Cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon Black Pepper (freshly ground)
  • 1 teaspoon Kosher Salt

Slice the chicken into bite-sized pieces. Slice the onion. Mince the garlic. Combine those ingredients with the spices in a mixing bowl and stir until everything is evenly coated.


Heat a cast-iron skillet* over medium heat with just enough olive oil to cover the bottom. Dump all of your combined ingredients into the skillet, and wait to hear that satisfying sizzle.


Keep an eye on the chicken, stirring every couple of minutes to ensure nothing is burning. Continue cooking until the chicken is no longer pink and the onions are translucent. In total, this should take about 10 minutes.


That’s it! After that, prepare your tacos however you enjoy! I prefer crunchy corn shells with shredded cheese. Louis loves them on corn tortillas with my homemade salsa and a squeeze of a fresh lime. ChickenTacos6

This recipe makes about ten tacos, so we always have leftovers, which are just as delicious the next day.

I hope you enjoy these tacos as much as we have!

*Our cast-iron skillet was the best investment we’ve made for our kitchen! We use it to cook so many recipes, and I know we’ll have it for years to come. I’d totally recommend buying one if you haven’t yet

You may enjoy these, too!
