Grilled Chicken & Pineapple Tacos

Happy Friday!!
Tacos are the best. Especially when they are filled with delicious toppings, such as marinated grilled chicken, grilled pineapples, salsa, and red cabbage; which this recipe contains ALL of those ingredients! I want to eat this for lunch everyday! 
Let's get to cooking! 

Grilled Chicken & Pineapple Tacos (makes roughly 10 tacos)

  • 1 lb chicken thighs, boneless and skinless
  • 10 pineapple slices
  • 2 cups thinly sliced red cabbage
  • 1/2 cup coconut aminos
  • 1 tablespoon fresh minced ginger
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tablespoon raw honey
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • spicy or mild salsa
  • coconut oil
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 10 corn tortillas
Season chicken thighs with salt and pepper. Place in a large ziplock bag, and add in coconut aminos, ginger, garlic, honey, and cayenne pepper. Shake until chicken is coated completely. Place in fridge until you are ready to cook.

Heat coconut oil in a grill pan over medium high heat, and once hot, add on chicken thighs. Grill for about 5 minutes per side, or until fully cooked.

Once the chicken has finished cooking, place on a cutting board and cover with a piece of aluminum foil to keep hot while we cook the pineapple! In the same grill pan, heat a little bit of coconut oil over medium-high heat. One hot, add in pineapple slices. Grill for about 3 minutes per side.

Once the pineapple slices are grilled, slice chicken thighs and start assembling the tacos! First, put sliced red cabbage on tortilla, then salsa, then a few grilled chicken slices, and then a pineapple slice. Devour and enjoy!
