Chicken Tacos

Okay. I think I might be on the site now. But of course I can't be sure. And I made some amazing tacos the other night and didn't take a photo because I wasn't sure if they would be edible at all, let alone photo worthy. But they were off the charts delicious. And that's not just because I invented the recipe either. So here's what I did in stages, but don't be frightened because they only took a half an hour from out of the car to the table:

Take two boneless, skinless chicken breasts and liberally add cumin, coriander, salt, pepper and chili powder. Of course they are already on a cookie sheet ready to go into the oven when you do this. Rub the spices all over the chicken and then immediately wash your hands with soap and water. Put them in the oven on 325.

While they are baking, chop up some fresh cilantro (about 1/3 of a cup) and finely dice a half of a jalapeno pepper. Add them to a small container of sour cream and the juice of a lime. Stir it up and cover it and put it in the fridge.

Chop half a sweet onion and cover and set aside.
Grate 2 cups of Monterrey Jack cheese and cover and put aside.
Mix up some cole slaw (bagged or homemade) with mayonaisse, salt, pepper and lemon juice (or easier still, just use cole slaw dressing store bought)
Slice an avacado

When your chicken is done after about 25 minutes, set it out to rest and wrap your tortillas in tin foil and let them warm in the oven while you set the table and put out all the condiments. This will be enough time.

Slice the chicken and arrange it on a plate.

Put all of the items mentioned here on the tortilla and eat it up. And if you love cilantro as much as I do, put some extra in a bowl to add to your taco with all the other yummies because it will make that taco burst with flavour!

So what you need to buy at the store is as follows:
boneless, skinless chicken breast,
if you don't have the ingredients for the rub, then salt, pepper, cumin, coriander, chili powder
sour cream
fresh cilantro
jalapeno peppper
sweet onion
cole slaw
cole slaw dressing
monterrey jack cheese
Hope I got it all and enjoy!
