Being confined to the four walls of our apartment for almost a full week, I’ve traded office time for time spent in the kitchen, preparing breakfast, lunch, and dinner around the clock for my husband and three children. Some days, especially for breakfast and lunch, I feel like I’m a short order cook, but secretly, I think I need to admit that I love to cook. Throughout my many group text chains and online chat groups, we share daily inspirations from our new norm with memes, virtual happy hours, emotional breakdowns, and my favorite addition- new ideas for dinner recipes. Amidst it all, cooking has helped me remain calm, while simultaneously recruiting three little sous chefs for some help. Happy to report that I have compiled some of my new found dinner dishes, and plan to share with you in guys in the upcoming weeks! In the meantime, check out this easy chicken taco recipe. No doubt, it will be in heavy rotation for dinner menus from now on!
Ok, I shared, now it’s your turn. Please post some of your favorites in the comments below!
Easy Chicken Tacos:
Here’s what you’ll need. I know this may seem like a lot of ingredients, but I bet most of you already have these in your pantry!
Chicken 1-2 pounds depending on family size
Red Cabbage (shredded)
Tortillas – we like whole wheat or flour
Seasoning The Chicken:
Make the seasoning! This recipe is from HERE.
- 1 teaspoon chili powder
- 1 teaspoon coriander powder
- 1 teaspoon paprika
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
- 1/2 teaspoon cumin powder
- 1/2 teaspoon black pepper powder
- 1/2 teaspoon Mexican oregano
- 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper powder
- Stir all ingredients together in separate bowl, then rub on chicken till fully covered. Grilled chicken on barbecue, or for us “city folk” on a grill pan till fully cooked!
Mix equal amounts of sriracha and mayo together to make the chipotle mayo sauce.
Make Your Tacos!
Add your chipotle sauce to the tortilla and add chicken. Top with cabbage, avocado, squeeze of fresh lime, and cilantro. ENJOY!
