Taco night has never been better! Korean Chicken Tacos are a perfect blend of international flavor, inspired by our favorite food trucks.


  • 2 lb. fresh chicken breasts
  • 4 oz pork chorizo
  • ¼ C Gochujang paste
  • ¼ C soy sauce
  • ¼ C honey
  • ¼ C vegetable oil
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • ½ C sour cream
  • ½ C finely chopped cilantro
  • 1 lime (juiced)
  • 12-14 corn tortillas
  • 6 oz Cotija cheese
  • 1 avocado, diced
  • 1/2 C fresh corn


  1. In a medium bowl, combine chorizo, gochujang paste, soy sauce, honey, vegetable oil, garlic cloves crushed, cilantro and juice of lime.
  2. Mix until thoroughly combined. Place chicken breasts in a gallon zip lock bag and add mixture and seal trying to remove as much air in the bag as possible.
  3. Allow to marinade at least 30 minutes, up to overnight. The longer you marinade the chicken the better the flavor.
  4. Grill chicken until internal temperature is at least 165°.
  5. When cooked allow to rest on plate for at least 5 minutes.
  6. Julienne chicken breast and place in serving bowl.
  7. Assemble tacos with remaining ingredients or add other favorites you may have.
