Thai Chicken Tacos

Ingredients

  • 1 pound skinless, boneless chicken breast halves or tenderloins, cut into ½- to ¾-inch pieces (we used tenderloins)
  • ¼ cup snipped fresh cilantro
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped shallot (1 medium)
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon fish sauce
  • 2 teaspoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • ½ to 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper (we used 1 teaspoon)
  • ½ to 1 teaspoon Asian chili sauce, such as Sriracha (we used one teaspoon of Sriracha)
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 16 (6-inch) corn tortillas, warmed
  • 1 recipe Cabbage Slaw (recipe below)
  • Lime wedges (forgot to use them)
  • Fresh cilantro sprigs (optional)
  • Chopped Peanuts (optional)

Directions

  1. Take a medium-sized bowl out and add to it the chicken, cilantro, shallot, lime juice, fish sauce, soy sauce, garlic, crushed red pepper, and chili sauce. Place a lid on the bowl and let the chicken marinate for an hour in the fridge (we left ours in for two hours).
  2. Take a large skillet out and pour the oil in. Set the heat to medium-high and wait for the oil to get hot. Add the chicken in and let it cook for 5 minutes or until the chicken’s fully cooked, stirring occasionally.
  3. When it comes to assembly, take two of the warmed tortillas and place the chicken mixture and the slaw in it. Add some slaw and lime wedges on the side. Should you choose to use them, garnish the tacos with the cilantro sprigs and the chopped peanuts.
