Yield: Yields 15 tacos
In these tacos, chicken thighs are marinated in sweet-sour tamarind soda, garlic, and soy sauce, and then rubbed with a coriander-chile spice rub. The tacos are great garnished with chopped red onion, avocado slices, and a squeeze of fresh lime juice.
Make Ahead Tips
You can marinate and refrigerate the chicken the night before. You can also grill the chicken up to 30 minutes before you plan to serve it.
If you can’t find tamarind soda, use lemon, orange, or ginger soda, preferably made with real cane sugar.
Oh, one recipe note. I got the coriander seeds and ground them just before making the rub and the flavor/aroma just explodes.
My boys RAVED about this dish. They said they'd never eat a beef taco again after this one. Agree with the other posts that the soda is the key. My local market had it on the Mexican Foods aisle. I made a Chipotle Crema for some heat. Killer recipe!!
