Beer-Marinated Chicken Tacos

Printed from Jenn's Food Journey, adapted from Serious Eats

Ingredients:
1/2 cup beer
1/4 teaspoon sesame oil
1 garlic clove, minced
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
2 chicken breasts, flattened for more even cooking
flour or corn tortillas
lettuce/tomato
shredded cheese

Directions:
Mix together the beer, sesame oil, garlic, oregano, salt, cumin, pepper and cayenne. Rinse the chicken and place in plastic resealable bag. Pour the marinade over the chicken, seal the bag and place in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours (I let mine marinate for about 4 hours).

Preheat grill to 375 degrees F. Clean and oil grill grates. Remove chicken and discard marinade. Place the chicken over direct heat and grill 8-10 minutes per side or until the chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165 degrees F. Remove from grill and allow to cool before slicing. Heat the tortillas on the grill if desired.

Build the tacos by adding lettuce, tomato, cheese, or whatever you decide... top with chicken and serve! Enjoy!
