2 tbsp. parsley, chopped

To make salsa:

In a bowl, mix all of the ingredients for the salsa and season to taste with salt and pepper. Allow the mixture to rest in the fridge while you prepare the chicken.

Combine all the spices for the chicken rub with 1 Tablespoon of olive oil, and rub on the chicken breasts.

Heat a non-stick frying pan on medium heat, and sear the chicken breasts for 3 minutes on each side. Then place the chicken on a baking tray, and bake in the oven for 8-10 minutes or until cooked through.

Heat up the tortillas in a hot oven or on a pan. Chop the cooked chicken, and assemble the tacos.

Before serving, garnish the tacos with chopped parsley and hot sauce (if using).
