Ingredients

  • 1 whole rotisserie chicken, use only the white meat (roughly diced) – will be about 3-4 cups
  • 1/2 cup BBQ Sauce (I used Stubbs)
  • 2 ears of corn, shucked
  • 1012 leaves of lettuce (bibb lettuce, boston lettuce, or butter lettuce work)
  • 1 cup diced cherry tomatoes
  • 1 avocado, sliced
  • 1/4 cup sliced red onion
  • 1 jalapeno, sliced
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro, roughly diced
  • 1 lime, cut into 8 wedges

Instructions

  1. To a medium bowl, add diced white meat part of the chicken and BBQ sauce. Toss to coat everything. Set aside.
  2. Turn stove burner on to medium heat. Add shucked corn straight on top of burner. Cook each side for 2-3 minutes until slightly charred. Remove and let rest. When cool, about 2 minutes, slice the corn kernels off the cob.
  3. Assemble the tacos.
  4. To one lettuce cup add a large scoop of BBQ chicken mixture (about 2 tablespoons), 1 slice of avocado, cherry tomatoes, sliced red onion, fresh cilantro, jalapeno, and a lime wedge. SERVE!
