  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable or olive oil
  • 1 lime juice and zest
  • 4 garlic cloves crushed
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes or powder
  • 1 tablespoon Sriracha .. or more if you want it spicier
  • 2 tablespoon cilantro for garnish
  • 3 chicken breasts
  • 9 tortillas small


  • Take three chicken breasts and put them into a large zip top bag.
  • In a small bowl, combine of the ingredients except the cilantro.
  • Pour your mixture over your chicken breasts, squeeze out the excess air, seal your bag (very important!) and move your chicken around so all sides are coated in your marinade.
  • Place in your refrigerator and let marinate for 1-2 hours.
  • When your chicken has marinated for as long as you like, remove the chicken from the zip bag and cook as you prefer.
  • You can grill these for 7-8 minutes on each side or bake them in the oven on 350 for 30 minutes or even throw them in a cast iron pan over medium high heat for 3-4 minutes on each side and then finish in the oven at 350 degrees for about 20-25 minutes.
  • Once your chicken is cooked, slice on the bias, start piling on your toppings and garnish with cilantro.
