  • 2 large boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 packet McCormick Grill Mates Brown Sugar Bourbon Marinade
  • ¼ cup oil
  • 2 tablespoons vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 8 street taco size flour tortillas
  • 1 cup broccoli slaw
  • ½ cup cilantro roughly chopped
  • ½ cup bbq sauce I like Stubbs, another member of the McCormick family
  • 2 tablespoons cotija cheese


  • Combine marinade packet, oil, water, and vinegar and add to a large ziploc bag along with chicken. Seal bag and chill for 15-30 minutes. 
  • Use tongs to transfer chicken to a preheated grill. Cook for 5-8 minutes on each side over medium high heat until cooked through. 
  • Thinly slice chicken and place in the tortillas along with slaw, cilantro, a drizzle of bbq sauce, and sprinkle of cotija cheese. Serve immediately. 


Pro tip: Add coleslaw!
