Spice Rub for Chicken
A lot of the flavor in these chili lime chicken tacos comes from the spice rub that is put on the chicken at the start. You don’t need to marinate the chicken with this rub, although you could if you wanted to. The key is to get the rub on all parts of the chicken and then to brown the chicken in oil, letting those spice rub flavors shine through.
