Recipe of the Week: CARIBBEAN CHICKEN TACOS

INGREDIENTS

  • 3-4 boneless skinless chicken breasts, pounded to ½ inch thickness
  • 1½ tablespoons Caribbean seasoning (store-bought OR see below for homemade version)
  • 8 taco-sized soft flour tortillas
  • 2 cups cole slaw (without dressing)
Caribbean salsa
  • ½ red bell pepper, diced
  • ½ red onion, diced
  • 1 mango, diced
  • 1 cup pineapple, diced
  • ¼ cup cilantro, roughly chopped
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice (about ½ of a juicy lime)
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Prepare the salsa by combining all ingredients in a bowl and stirring well. Cover and chill until ready to use.
  2. Slice chicken breasts into strips (or chop into bite-sized pieces) and place in a bowl. Sprinkle chicken with half of the Caribbean seasoning, stir, then sprinkle with remaining seasoning and toss to coat.
  3. Cook chicken in a large greased pan or skillet over medium heat for 5-8 minutes until cooked through.
  4. To serve, fill each tortilla with cooked chicken, then top with cole slaw and Caribbean salsa. Serve immediately with fresh limes for drizzling if desired.
