Full of Thai flavor

Taco Tuesday needs a face-lift. These Thai tacos combine grilled chicken, cabbage slaw and lots of peanut butter sauce.

Full of Thai flavor

Chicken tacos are delicious but when you add a little Thai flavor they become out-of-this-world delicious. We kept the chicken flavor simple and grilled but paired it with lots of fresh crunchy vegetables, herbaceous cilantro and a homemade Sriracha peanut butter sauce. Taco Tuesday just got a lot more flavorful.

Serves 4


  • 4 large boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 2/3 cup shredded cabbage

  • 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 2 tablespoons Sriracha sauce
