Make

  1. If making chicken on the grill: Preheat grill to 500F (260C) degrees, keeping one part on higher heat and another part on lower heat. Clean grates and brush with some oil. Add chicken breast halves over direct heat. Sear on each side for ~3 minutes (keeping cover closed). Move to lower heat and cook for another 2 to 3 minutes (or until chicken is cooked through) with cover closed. Warm tortillas in the grill during the last 2 to 3 minutes.
  2. If making chicken on the stovetop: Heat a grill pan over medium-high heat. Brush pan with some oil and then add chicken to hot grill pan and sear for ~3 minutes on both sides. Lower heat and then cover with foil, cooking for another 2 to 3 minutes. Warm tortillas according to package instructions.
  3. Let chicken rest for ~5 minutes. Chop into bite-sized pieces and toss with second part of the marinade.
  4. Set out your taco bar of tortillas, chicken, and salsa and let everyone assemble their own tacos!

Delicious tacos. Used frozen corn instead, which worked fine, although I didn't measure and it was out of proportion to the peaches. The marinade was great.

Maybe the chicken didn't marinate long enough, but it didn't really have a flavor. Liked the salsa, though!

Surprisingly good. I was a little leery of the honey mustard for tacos, but it worked!

Did not do the salsa but the chicken was fantastic. Used left over red cabbage and carrot slaw from previous recipe to go with it.
