Nowadays most everybody is familiar with chicken tacos. These here beauties are essentially the same, except that the chicken has been replaced with the much more succulent and tasty Capon (rooster meat).

Author's Notes

For best results, brine the chicken overnight (see step 1). Depending on where you live and how specialized your local supermarket is, you may be able to find a capon in the poultry section. If you can't find capon, these tacos will also be delicious with regular chicken breast.
