In a medium bowl, toss chicken with marinade, 1/2 teaspoon of the chili powder, salt, and pepper.
In a medium bowl, mix mexicorn, salsa verde, onion, cilantro, and lime juice, tossing to combine.
Prepare an outdoor grill or heat a stovetop grill pan over medium heat. Cook chicken 3 to 4 minutes per side until cooked through. Remove from grill.
Meanwhile, in a skillet over medium heat, toss onion rings with the remaining 1/4 teaspoon chili powder; heat, stirring, until warm, about 3 minutes.
Cut chicken into 1/2-inch pieces. Fill each taco shell with chicken, dividing evenly. Top each with 2 tablespoons of the corn mixture and 2 tablespoons of the onion ring mixture. Garnish with lettuce.
