Key West Grilled Chicken

I've cut way back on grilling chicken breast. Instead I usually grill chicken thighs or chicken tenderloins. Whenever either one is on sale I make sure to snag plenty.

This chicken came out fantastic. Tender and very tasty. If it's not my favorite grilled chicken then it is at least tied for first.

I cut up the leftovers and had them in hard taco shells with some avocado cream sauce, tomato, red onion and shredded cheese. The chicken was just as good leftover!
