Ahhhhhhh a little taste of the Mediterranean comin’ your way today. Now bear in mind, I’ve never visited Greece – and that is why I often talk about “Greek-inspired” dishes. I also haven’t been to Asia but I share Asian-inspired dishes all. the. time. In fact, they’re some of my most popular recipes.

All of that being said, these tacos = WHOLY YUM. Regardless of whether they serve tacos like these in Greece, I’m lovin’ em.

You can see in the picture above, I actually served some of these straight up. And by “straight up” I simply mean minus sauces. But then I got the crazy idea to drizzle on some balsamic glaze and a whole new meal was born. Add a little squeeze of fresh lemon and ohhhh baby. Yeah, Ima eat that.

Tacos are kind of my favorite thing in the entire world. Generally I stick to Mexican-style tacos (street tacos, I heart you forever) but recently I was craving Greek (mostly feta cheese and kalamata olives) at the same time I was craving tacos (every day of my life) so this dish is one of my beloved mashups.

Why settle for one when you can have it all right?

Have your cake and eat it too!

Or tacos. Whatevs.

And I have good news for you. These tacos are E to the Z and quick. The chicken takes about 10-12 minutes to cook on the stove, then you just throw everything in a soft tortilla and shove it in your taco-lovin’ face.

20 minutes people. That’s all it takes.

What a novel twist on the taco. All flavors I love.

I will eat just about anything in a taco shell. They are my favorite vehicle for shoveling food into my mouth! What a great twist on tacos and I can’t wait to try these!

    Tacos are HANDS DOWN my favorite food. I can never ever turn down a taco!

Newbie here. What is the Basalmic Glaze?

    Hi Phillip, Balsamic glaze can be found in almost any grocery store near the vinegars and balsamic vinegar.

Do you happen to have the nutritional information for this dish available?
