Ingredients

Peach Salsa

  • 3 medium ripe peaches, pitted, peeled, and cut into 1/2-in cubes
  • 1 medium tomato, cored and cut into 1/2-in cubes
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped red onion
  • 1 medium jalapeno, cored, seeded, and finely minced
  • 1/4 cup minced fresh cilantro
  • 2 tablespoons freshly-squeezed lime juice
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Blackened Chicken

  • 1-1/2 teaspoons paprika
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1-1/2 lbs boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • Warmed corn or flour tortillas for serving
  • Fresh cilantro and lime wedges for serving

Instructions

Peach Salsa

  • In a medium bowl, combine all salsa ingredients. Season salsa with salt and pepper to taste. Store salsa in refrigerator until ready to serve.

Blackened Chicken

  • In a small bowl, combine all spices. Rub spice mixture evenly all over chicken breasts.
  • Grill chicken over medium-high heat, turning occasionally until chicken registers 165F.
  • Cool chicken 10 minutes, then thinly slice into strips. Keep chicken warm until ready to serve.
  • When ready to serve, heap chicken into warmed tortillas and top with peach salsa. Garnish tacos with additional cilantro and squeeze lime wedges over top if desired. Serve immediately and enjoy!

Notes

*Alternatively, if you don't have access to a grill, preheat oven to 375F. In a large oven-safe skillet over medium-high heat, melt 1 tablespoon butter and 1 tablespoon olive oil. Add chicken to pan and sear 3-4 minutes on each side until golden-brown. Place pan in oven and bake 5-8 minutes at 375F until chicken registers 165F.
