Caribbean Chicken Tacos
3-4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 1/2 tablespoons Caribbean seasoning (store-bought OR see below for the homemade recipe)
8 taco-sized soft flour tortillas
2 cups coleslaw (without dressing) (you could also just chop up some cabbage)
1/2 red bell pepper, diced
1/2 red onion, diced
1 mango, diced
1 cup pineapple, diced
1/4 cup cilantro, roughly chopped
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1. Prepare the salsa by combining all ingredients in a bowl and stirring well. Cover and chill until ready to use.
2. Slice chicken breasts into strips (I like to buy chicken tenderloins, they are smaller pieces and seem easier to cut!) and place in a bowl. Sprinkle chicken with half of the Caribbean seasoning, stir, then sprinkle with the remaining seasoning and toss to coat.
3. Cook chicken in a large greased pan or skillet over medium heat for 5-8 minutes until cooked through.
4. To serve, fill each tortilla with cooked chicken, then top with coleslaw (or cabbage) and Caribbean salsa. Serve immediately with fresh limes for drizzling if desired.
