Happy Saturday everyone! I’m so excited to relax this weekend. I’ll definitely be working on some more posts and recipes (coming soon!) but I will also be taking a relaxing weekend to myself to recharge. Sometime you just need a little break, you know? Some “you” time. Treat Yo-self. I hope you all are doing the same!
Earlier this week, I began working on this recipe that I’ve been wanting to make for a long time now. Mainly because I LOVE LOVE LOVE peanut sauce (like crazy stalker love), but also because I’m so in to fusion tacos. Or I guess any taco really, now that I think about it. This taco/peanut sauce obsession led to these Thai Chicken Tacos. They’re so fresh and delicious – and so colorful too.
These easy tacos are so simple: shredded chicken, a fresh cabbage carrot slaw, and home made peanut sauce. YUM. These tacos are so light tasty, I could eat these every night. And did I mention, they’re so easy to make? A half an hour maximum to make these! Can’t get much better than that. Here is the recipe:
Thai Chicken Tacos
- 2 chicken breasts
- 1 TBSP olive oil
- 1/2 cup green cabbage
- 1/2 cup red cabbage
- 1 carrot
- 1/2 medium cucumber
- 1 lime
- 1 clove garlic minced
- 1/2 - 1 cup peanut sauce store bought or home made
- corn tortillas
- Additional toppings: cilantro, bean sprouts, jalapeños, fresh lime juice
Preheat oven to 400 degrees
Coat chicken breast with olive oil, salt and pepper and place on a baking sheet with foil and bake for 15-20 minutes or until chicken is cooked through (165 degrees)
Meanwhile, chop the cabbage (both types), carrots and cucumber into matchstick sized pieces and place into bowl.
Cut lime in half and squeeze juice over cabbage mixture. Add minced garlic, salt and pepper to mix and toss to combine.
Take chicken out the oven once cooked through, and let cool. When cooled down enough, shred the chicken.
Get your tortillas ready (either microwave with damp paperwork, or toast on stove) and assemble the tacos. Fill tortillas with chicken, cabbage mixture and top with a drizzle (or more) peanut sauce and any additional toppings you desire. Enjoy!
** If you prefer to purchase your peanut sauce, this is a great one!
