If you’re anything like me, you wouldn’t mind if Taco Tuesday could be every night of the week. The great thing about tacos is the endless possibilities to make them however you like! One of my favorite ways to enjoy them are these Hawaiian Chicken Skillet Tacos made with fresh vegetables like delicious Vidalia Onions and a mouthwatering marinade.
The best part? The marinade can be made ahead of time and this is another dinner you can have on the table in under 30 minutes.
The sweet marinade has a little spice to it (you could totally increase the heat if you like it hot) and the delicious combination of vegetables and pineapple will have your tastebuds screaming for more.
My favorite Vidalia Onions are not only delicious but really make this recipe POP.
These Hawaiian Chicken Skillet Tacos taste like you spent way more time in the kitchen then you actually will but no one needs to know that but you.
They make a great party recipe too. Just double the recipe below and serve them on game day or any party you want the excuse to enjoy delicious tacos.
l like to make the marinade the night before so the chicken can soak in it all night but when I’m pressed for time, I’ve totally made it right before I cooked them.
Once the chicken is cooked, the Vidalia Onions and other veggies become the star of this recipe. Soaking up all the juices from the chicken and the reserved marinade.
I’ve even been known to forgo the Hawaiian Chicken Tacos and just eat the veggies right from the plate. They’re that good y’all.
I like to use Street Tacos shells, they’re a soft taco shell that is a lot smaller than most but they’re the perfect size for these handheld bites of goodness.
One bite when they’re filled with the chicken and veggies and you’ll see why this is my family’s most requested taco dinner.
