Chicken Tacos Al Pastor Whole30 Paleo

Chicken Tacos Al Pastor Recipe (Whole30 + Paleo)

  • Author: Caroline Fausel



1.66 lb chicken breasts or tenderloins

1/2 c onion, chopped

1/4 t chipotle powder

3 T tomato paste

5 dates

1 t dried oregano

1/4 t ancho chili powder

1/2 pineapple chunks

1/2 c orange juice

1/4 c lime juice

Taco Toppings

Chopped onion

Chopped cilantro

Finely chopped pineapple


  1. Add all ingredients except the chicken into a blender, and blend until smooth.
  2. Add chicken and sauce to a reusable Stasher bag or Ziploc to marinade. While you can immediately grill this chicken, you will thank me if you marinate this chicken for 3-4 hours, or even better, overnight!
  3. Grill the chicken until it is crispy on the outside and fully cooked on the inside. Chop into bite-sized pieces.
  4. Assemble the tacos: put the chicken tacos al pastor and sauce into either Siete Grain-Free Tortillas or Bibb Lettuce, and top with onions, cilantro, and pineapple!
