Yummy Yummy in the Tummy (tuesday)

Thai Chicken Tacos were in the May issue of Better Homes and Gardens (which I think that I got for free or for $2.99 for the year).

These were delicious and super easy.  A different taste but we love thai food and J. liked them too!  I recommend these for everyone!

I don’t know if the this link will work so I am going to put the recipe below :)

  • 1 lb. skinless, boneless chicken breasts or tenders, cut into 1/2- to 3/4-inch pieces
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro

  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 Tbsp. fish sauce
  • 2 tsp. reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 1/2 to 1 tsp. crushed red pepper

I did a few things differently- we didn’t put radishes in the slaw because J. wasn’t excited about them.  We also used flour tortias because that’s what we always have on hand.  I used the higher end of the recommended spicy ingredients and that went really well.  Happy Cooking :)
