Thai chicken tacos with peanut butter sauce

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

Thai chicken tacos with peanut butter sauce

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.
