Your taco Tuesday just got a little bit better with these oven baked honey lime chicken tacos. If you have never baked your tacos before then you’re missing out. The shells get so crispy and toasty and the cheese just melts all over the chicken filling.
Load each taco up with the toppings of your choice and serve! The best thing about these is that everything is baked together all at once. Just set it on the table along with taco toppings and let everyone customize their own.
All you need is some shredded chicken, fresh lime juice, honey, and some spices. Mix that up in a bowl and then divide it evenly among the corn taco shells. Top with some cheese and let it bake away.
My favorite cheese to use is Monterey Jack. But, Colby Jack or Pepper Jack would also be really good in these. The meat is a bit sweeter thanks to the honey, so if you want some heat to balance it then definitely go with the Pepper Jack cheese.
We usually like to keep things simple when we eat these tacos and just go with some sour cream. That way you really get that delicious honey lime flavor from the chicken.
I normally also serve it with some avocado slices but out of the 5 avocados (yes, 5!) in my kitchen zero were good. Don’t you hate that?! Avocados are like ripe for about 2.5 seconds, haha 🙂
These honey lime chicken tacos are also really delicious with all the taco toppings. Shredded lettuce, chopped tomato, pico de gallo, avocado or guacamole, or whatever else you want.
Enjoy these my friends! If you want another really delicious baked taco recipe then be sure and check out these baked fajita beef tacos.
