Tune into Fox 4 this morning at 9:40 to see me making Barbeque Chicken Tacos! A few weeks ago, the crew from Fox 4 Good Day came to my kitchen to shoot several food segments. Barbeque Chicken Tacos is the second episode of three, the next is set to air on April 24th.

If you’re like me, we are always looking for a great weeknight meal that’s not too complicated. My Barbeque Chicken Tacos are tasty, simple to make and they’re delicious enough to serve a crowd. I recently made them for a family gathering of 10 to celebrate my dad’s 86th birthday and they were a hit!

The tanginess of the barbeque sauce with the crunch of the vegetables, seasoned with Mexican spices and the juice and zest of lime, create a taste explosion.

You can use leftover chicken, roast it fresh, or use a rotisserie chicken for this recipe. I like to make my barbeque sauce so the recipe is added below, but of course, you can use your favorite bottled sauce.
