Grilled Citrus Chicken Tacos

These Grilled Citrus Chicken Tacos make the perfect summertime meal. I love grilled chicken on just about anything so I knew I was going to love these tacos. Serve them with fresh mandarin oranges and a spritz of fresh lemon juice cheese and you have a healthy and delicious dinner!

1.5 lbs chicken tenderloins
1 cup Lawrys Hawaiian Marinade, divided
1 cup mandarin orange pieces, chopped

In a large freezer bag place chicken and 1/2 cup of marinade. Seal and place in the fridge for at least one hour. (I did mine for about 3)

Grill chicken over medium high heat for about 10-12 minutes or until juices run clear. Baste chicken in remaining 1/2 cup of marinade. Remove from heat and slice.

To assemble tacos place equal amounts of sliced chicken in each tortilla. Top with chopped oranges, and cheese. Spritz with fresh lemon and top with green onion or cilantro. Enjoy!
