Delicious Asian-inspired chicken tacos that are simply amazing!
  • 5-6 Skinless, Boneless Chicken Breasts
  • 1 Tablespoon Sesame Oil
  • 1 Package Cole Slaw
  • ¼ cup diced Red Onion
  • 1 (4oz) can of diced Jalapenos
  • ½ Tablespoon Crushed Red Pepper Flakes
  • Asian Dressing/Marinade ( I used Krafts Asian Toasted Sesame dressing/ marinade)
  • 1 package square Wonton Wrappers
  • 1 cup Vegetable Oil
  • ¼ cup Chopped Cilantro
  • Limes
  1. In a large bowl, mix together the cole slaw, cilantro and diced red onion.
  2. Strain the can of jalepenos’, and add desired amount into the coleslaw mix. ( I only used ¼ of the can because I’m a wimp and cant handle the heat. Use as much as you’d like for your own heat tolerance)
  3. Pour the Asian dressing into the coleslaw mix. ( I used about ¼ cup). Mix well, cover and refigerate for atleast one hour.
  4. Place chicken breasts in a large bowl and coat with desired amount of Asian dressing/marinade. Cover and refrigerate one hour. (Refigerate both coleslaw and chicken breasts for the same hour)
  5. Grill chicken breasts for atleast 8 minutes or until thoroughly cooked then cut into cubes.
  6. Heat Sesame oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Once heated, add the cubed chicken and red pepper flakes. Stir fry for about 2 minutes or until chicken is hot. Remove chicken from skillet and then set on a large plate.
  7. Add 1 cup vegetable oil to the same skillet and heat over medium to med-low heat.
  8. Place a ‘strip’ of chicken down the center of two wonton wrappers.( I doubled the wonton wrappers because one didnt seem thick enough). Fold up sides, like a taco.
  9. Using tongs, fry the ‘taco’ for atleast 1 minute , turning to make sure both sides are cooked. You want it to be golden brown and crispy.
  10. Top each taco with the coleslaw mixture and a squeeze of fresh lime. Enjoy!
*BAKED VERSION: Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Fill the uncooked wonton wrappers with the cooked chicken. Place in a greased 9×13 baking pan. Bake for 10 minutes or so, until wrappers are golden and crispy. Fill tacos with coleslaw mixture and a squeeze of fresh lime! Serve and enjoy ♥
