Chicken tacos with citrus cabbage slaw

>> Monday, January 18, 2010

In a rush to make a movie this evening (which ended up being sold out for the 3rd time I tried to see it) I made a quick chicken taco dinner with a citrus cabbage slaw.  All you need to pull this delicious dinner together is:

1/4 cup fresh orange juice
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
2 tablespoons sour cream
Kosher salt and black pepper
1/4 cup small cabbage, shredded
1 cup corn kernals, canned or frozen and thawed
1 jalapeno, seeded and chopped
1 bunch green onions, chopped
A handful of cilantro leaves
1 tablespoon chili garlic sauce
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 boneless, skinless breasts of chicken
Soy sauce
Ground cumin
Flour tortillas, warmed

In a largew bowl, whisk the orange and lime juices, sour cream, 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper.  Add cabbage, corn and jalapeno and toss to combine.  Add chili garlic sauce and cilantro and continue tossing until combined.  Set aside, tossing every few minutes. 

In the meantime, heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Season the chicken with a dash of cumin, salt and pepper and drizzle soy sauce over top.  Let cook, stirring frequently until cooked through. 

Serve the chicken with the tortillas and the slaw. Enjoy!
