  1. For the Marinade: Combine the chicken breasts, olive oil, spices, zest, salt, and pepper in freezer bag and give everything a good mix. Chill in the fridge for at least 4 hours (overnight is best).
  2. When ready to cook, set temperature to 450℉ and preheat, lid closed for 15 minutes.
  3. Place the chicken breasts on the hot grill and cook, lid closed, for 25 to 30 minutes, until crispy, golden, and the chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165℉.
  4. While the chicken is on the grill, prepare the pico, guacamole, and spiked sour cream.
  5. For the Pico: Combine the diced tomatoes, red onion, cilantro and juice of 1 lime in a small bowl and mix well. Season to taste and set aside.
  6. For the Guacamole: Peel and carefully remove the pit from the avocados. Smash the avocado in a bowl with the lime juice until smooth, leaving a few chunks for texture. Next add the red onion, cilantro and give everything a good mix. Season to taste.
  7. For the Spiked Sour Cream: Combine all the spiked sour cream ingredients in a small bowl and mix well.
  8. Remove the grilled chicken from the grill and let rest for 5 minutes before slicing into thin strips.
  9. Divide the sliced grilled chicken on warm tortillas, then hit each with fresh pico, guacamole, and a dollop of spiked-sour cream. Top each taco with sliced jalapeño and fresh cilantro, and serve with lime wedges and hot sauce. Enjoy!
