How to Make TAIWAN TACOS -- BONNIE'S

Step-by-Step

  • 1Do ALL the prep work first, then the assembly is easy!
  • 2Make the salad and set it in the refrigerator to chill. Knife cut the Romaine lettuce into very thin strips. Slice the celery (from the heart). Slice the radishes into rounds, then cut the rounds into half moons. Add the chopped cashews or peanuts.
  • 3Slice the chicken breasts into 1/4 inch thin slices about 1 1/2 inches long.
  • 4I used a 10 inch cast iron non-stick skillet to prepare the chicken. Add some Kitchen Spray to the pan over medium-high heat. When the pan is hot, add the chicken, grated ginger, and minced garlic. Cook about 5 minutes until light brown, then turn the heat to low.
  • 5Add the soy sauce, green onions, red pepper flakes, and honey. Using the tongs, make sure all the chicken is coated. Cover and cook over low heat for 5 minutes until chicken is done. Don't overcook!
  • 6Fry the taco shells. Place a small 8 inch skillet on medium high heat, add olive oil (or grapeseed oil) and the sesame oil, whisk the two oils together. Fry the taco shells until light brown and drain on paper towels, cover to keep warm. Note: If you need to fry more taco shells, just add more olive oil and add the sesame oil.
  • 7Fill each taco shell with the cooked chicken, top with a generous helping of salad on the taco and on your plate, and drizzle all with the balsamic vinaigrette dressing. You can serve this dish with rice or make sweet potato fries using my oven fries recipe if you wish. Enjoy!
