Smoky Chipotle Chicken Tacos

18 03 2014

Taco Tuesday’s never been easier, and not because you’re eating out….you just need a fast recipe! Using a crunchy slaw mix, such as broccoli slaw, is a great time saver when you’re trying to get dinner on the table quickly. It also adds the necessary textural contrast to soft tortillas, helping create a great taco!

The following makes 4 tacos (adapted from Everyday Food):

  • Olive oil
  • 2 large boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cubed
  • 2 cups broccoli-slaw mix
  • 2 Tbsp non-fat plain Greek yogurt
  • 2-3 tsp chopped chipotle in adobo
  • Zest and juice of half a lime
  • Salt and pepper
  • 4 multi-grain tortillas, charred
  • 1/2 cup fresh cilantro leaves

Add a little olive oil to a large skillet over medium-high heat. Season chicken with salt, pepper and a tsp of chipotle. Saute until browned and cooked through, 7-8 minutes.

Meanwhile, combine slaw, yogurt, chipotle (use 1-2 tsp depending how much you like chipotle), lime zest and juice. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Char the tortillas over the flame of a gas burner, flipping constantly.

Top each tortilla with chicken, slaw and cilantro.
