Mom, these Thai Peanut chicken Tacos are for you!
So I totally would have made these Thai Peanut Chicken Tacos with Pineapple Lime Cucumber Slaw for Mother’s Day (although I don’t regret my Blackberry Hoisin Ginger Pork Tenderloin – A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!) if I hadn’t just brought them to my mom’s for lunch the week before.
She was going CRAZY for them! And I was too!
So I only remember her exact words despite my terrible memory (cue this post which explains my lunge hemorrhage and temporary brain swelling), because after I create a recipe and then savor it (okay its more like snarf it – I am not that patient after having to first take my food pics), I like to write down my impressions or Patrick’s reaction and note all the different flavors because it can be months before I actually post it with commentary.
Like how I mentioned in my Alfredo Philly Cheesesteak Pizza how it was “crazy good” – I wrote down, “Patrick and both couldn’t stop saying to each other how crazy good this pizza is! ” Or for my Angel Cake French Toast with Strawberry Syrup, I noted that Patrick’s first words were, “Are you kidding me?”
- “Explosion of flavor”
- “LOVE, love, love, love love!”
- “Slaw perfectly compliments chicken”
- “Crazy flavorful”
- “Can’t even handle it”
- “So many dimensions of flavor”
Need I go on? Oh but you know I will!….Those descriptions turn into a little something like this:
The “explosion of flavor” from these “amazing” tacos comes by marinating the chicken for 30 minutes in soy sauce, brown sugar, lime, fish sauce, basil, garlic and ginger. The chicken is then cooked in the marinade and then crunchy peanut butter is stirred in to create an “insane” peanut sauce coated chicken which you will “love, love, love, love love!” The Pineapple Lime Cucumber Slaw is is sweet and citrusy, refreshing and crunchy, which “perfectly compliments,” and brightens the “crazy flavorful” peanut chicken.
Seriously, these tacos are one of my favorite meals E-V-E-R! I “can’t even handle” how good they are! And although the name might sound long, it doesn’t meant these take long to make- just look at the directions – SO EASY! Simply marinate chicken, stir fry chicken and stir in peanut butter; then marinate slaw then top chicken in tortillas with slaw. SO EASY!
I hope you make these “truly amazing,” “restaurant quality” Thai Peanut Chicken Tacos with Pineapple Lime Cucumber Slaw soon because I can’t wait to hear what impressions you would have written down and to see if you too, “can’t even handle” the “so many dimensions of flavor” :)!
