Thai Chicken Tacos!

Okay, so I have to admit I am getting sick of cooking the same old dinners week after week. My kids are super picky and we tend to have the same few meals over and over because they are creatures of habit like most kids. This week I said, “no more.” I am making something different. Something adventurous. And darn it, they are going to eat it!

These Thai Chicken Tacos were a big hit. They have just enough flavor to make them delicious, but they have ingredients that most kids will eat. I promise you are gonna love them.

Start by trimming your chicken breast. Cut each breast into 4 quarters.

Add chicken to a pot of boiling water and cook for 15 minutes until cooked through.

Once the chicken is cooked, remove and allow to cool. Cut into bite-sized chunks and set aside.

In a small bowl, mix the dressing ingredients. You need to whisk it for a good minute or two to really incorporate all of the ingredients.

Place salad mix, scallions, peanuts, and cooked chicken in a large bowl and toss to combine.

Pour in the dressing and toss to coat. Hold back just a little dressing for a last minute drizzle. Oh my, that looks so delicious!

Place your chicken/salad mixture in flour tortillas. Drizzle with remaining dressing and a sprinkle of chopped peanuts.
