Asian-Inspired Chicken Tacos

These were a creation from Hubby after he was inspired by an episode of Diners, Drive-ins & Dives. I was a little nervous when he told me about this, but I was happily surprised when they turned out SO good!

• 2 t minced garlic
• 1 T chopped green onion
• 1 T chopped cilantro
• 4 chicken breasts
• 1/2 cup hoisin sauce
• 2 T soy sauce
• shredded cabbage
• shredded carrots
• soft tortillas
• white rice
Place chicken in large pan and cook until no pink remains.

Add garlic, hoisin sauce, soy sauce and cook until sauce thickens.

Pour in cilantro and green onion and cook for a few more minutes until soft.

While chicken and sauce is cooking, make rice according to box directions.

Pour chicken and sauce onto taco shells. Top with cabbage and carrots.

Wrap up the sides and enjoy!

  3. I avoid cilantro as much as I can,lol. I am sure this would be delicious even if I skip it.It looks so yummy.

  4. This sounds wonderful! Thanks for stopping by my blog!

  5. They sound great, we got to a Mongolian BBQ place and I usually make mine along an Asian style and then pile it all into a tortilla with rice. It's yummy so I'm sure this is too:)

  19. Mmm. Anything with cilantro and green onion.

    For those who can't have soy...coconut aminos {although crazy $$} are a good alternative...

    therefore, I can make this dish.

    Thanks for linking up to Creative Juice, Lisa!
