Expert Tips

  • Marinate Chicken – To give the chicken the best flavor, make sure to marinate it for at least for an hour.
  • Prepare Blackstone – Make sure to heat the Blackstone and oil the flat top. This gives the chicken the best texture and prevents it from sticking to the griddle.
  • Allow Chicken to Rest – We recommend to allow the chicken to rest before serving after cooking. This locks in the juices and gives the chicken more flavor.
  • Stovetop – If you prefer you can cook the chicken in a cast iron skillet on the stovetop.

Frequently Asked Questions

How to Store Leftovers Chicken Street Tacos

Refrigerate the Blackstone chicken tacos leftovers in an airtight container for up to 5 days in the refrigerator.  We recommend storing in individual containers. This chicken would also be great served with some rice and roasted vegetables. Reheat leftovers in the microwave.

Can I Bake Chicken?

Yes, you can bake the chicken instead of cooking on your Blackstone Griddle. Preheat oven to 425 degrees and place the marinated chicken on a baking sheet. Bake the chicken for about 30 minutes. Once chicken is baked, dice then serve on your tortillas.

How do you know when Chicken is done

To check if your chicken is done, it is best to use a meat thermometer. Insert the thermometer into the chicken and it should read 165 degrees when chicken is done.
