We love to grill in the Summer, and chicken is always a hit with everyone at my house. One of our most popular recipes on NoBiggie is the 4 ingredient chicken marinade, but this chicken marinade for Summer chicken tacos is also one of our favorites!
My sister Becky shared this recipe with us a few years ago, and it’s a keeper. Any chance to be outside and warm up the grill when the weather is nice, is the best! Serve these with cabbage, cheese, pico de gallo or our favorite homemade salsa, and lots of cilantro, for the perfect Taco Night.
Who’s excited for Summer?!
The Marinade Recipe:
Summer Chicken Tacos

- 1 Cup Fresh Lime Juice
- 1 Cup White Vinegar
- 1 Cup Canola Oil
- 1 Cup Soy Sauce
- 1/2 Cup Worcestershire Sauce

Marinade 1 hour or at the most: overnight.
Grill the chicken for 6 minutes on one side and don't move it, then flip it over to the other side for another 5 minutes. Take it off the grill and let it rest for a few minutes.
Slice up the chicken breast and serve it on your favorite tortilla and all the fixings. Enjoy!

How long to marinate chicken?
If you are short on time, you need to let the chicken marinate for at least 30 minutes, max time: overnight. Poultry CAN marinate for up to two days in the fridge, but I wouldn’t recommend it. If there is soy sauce in the marinade (which this one does), you will want to avoid marinating for too long, because it can discolor the uncooked chicken before cooking.
