Ingredients

  • 5-6 Skinless Boneless Chicken Breasts
  • 1 Tablespoon Sesame Oil
  • 1 Package Cole Slaw
  • 1/4 cup diced Red Onion
  • 1 4oz can of diced Jalapenos
  • 1/2 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
  • 1/4 cup Chopped Cilantro
  • Limes

Instructions

  • In a large bowl, mix together the cole slaw, cilantro and diced red onion.
  • Strain the can of jalepenos’, and add desired amount into the coleslaw mix. ( I only used 1/4 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)
  • Pour the Asian dressing into the coleslaw mix. ( I used about 1/4 cup). Mix well, cover and refigerate for atleast one hour.
  • 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)
  • Grill chicken breasts for atleast 8 minutes or until thoroughly cooked then cut into cubes.
  • 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.
  • Add 1 cup vegetable oil to the same skillet and heat over medium to med-low heat.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Top each taco with the coleslaw mixture and a squeeze of fresh lime. Enjoy!

Notes

*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 ♥
