  • 1 lb boneless skinless chicken breast
  • 2 Tbsp lime juice
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tsp chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne
  • 1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
  • 8 corn tortillas


  • 1 mango, peeled and chopped
  • 1 jalapeño, seeded and finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup red onion, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup cilantro, chopped
  • 1 tsp lime juice
  • Salt and pepper, to taste


  1. For more even cooking, pound chicken breast to an even thickness, about 3/4 to 1 inch thick.
  2. Add chicken, lime juice, olive oil, garlic, and spices to a bowl. Toss to coat and allow to marinate while you prepare the salsa.
  3. Mix all salsa ingredients together in a small bowl. Set aside.
  4. Cook chicken over medium heat in a large skillet until done, about 6-7 minutes each side. Remove from heat, allow to rest 5 minutes and shred with a fork.
  5. While chicken is resting, heat tortillas per package instructions.
  6. Serve shredded chicken with mango salsa on warm tortillas. Enjoy!
