Share A Spoon - It's A Chicken Kinda Day

Psssst... It's Thursday! Get your butts over to the Think Tank and link up with Momma B!

This week's Share A Spoon theme is
CHICKEN!

Don't think I'll believe for a second that you don't have a favorite chicken recipe! Write it out, post it, and LINK!!! It's so easy! Even I can do it!

This recipe is adapted from something I saw on 5 Ingredient Fix - a Food Network show...

Lime Chicken Tacos

What you need:
1 whole chicken
1 lime
Kosher salt
Black pepper
Cumin
Can o' corn
Can o' black beans
1/4 head red cabbage
Handful o' cilantro
2 Roma tomatoes
Cayenne Pepper
White corn tortillas

What to do:
Preheat oven to 400.  Zest your lime and put the lime zest on the chicken BETWEEN the meat and skin.  Cut lime in half and squeeze juice from both sides over the chicken. Stuff lime halves into chicken cavity. Generously sprinkle salt, pepper, and cumin over chicken.
Cook chicken until it reaches 165 degrees...

While that is cooking, shred your cabbage and chop your tomatoes and cilantro.  Rinse your rinse and drain corn and black beans.  Mix all of that together. Sprinkle with Cayenne and mix well.

When chicken is done, let cool a bit then remove the meat and shred it.


Warm the tortillas following the instuctions on the package and build your taco! I served mine with a bit of cheese and sour cream and a slice of lime!

Sorry the pics stink.  I took them with the Crackberryosaurus.  At least I have some this week!
