What does one make with a fresh batch of Thai Peanut Sauce? Why, Thai Chicken Tacos, of course!!

Ok, ok, I admit that I was initially planning on making a Thai chicken pizza. But the idea occurred to me to skip the step of making the dough and waiting for it to rise (keyword: waiting), and instead just layer the ingredients into some tortillas and call it good!

And holy smokes, were these good!!!

All of the classic Thai chicken pizza flavors came together perfectly in these tacos. I loved the zesty chicken, fresh cabbage, bean sprouts, cilantro and lime juice paired with the lightness of the fresh tortillas. But of course, if I’m going to be honest, the peanut sauce is what really stole the show. I’ve decided that peanut sauce is pretty much the “Nutella” of the savory world for me…it always turns each dish into a winner. So good!

But perhaps the best part of these Thai chicken tacos that they literally took less than 15 minutes to make. Just saute up the chicken, add the fixin’s, drizzle with peanut sauce and sprinkle with lime juice, and these are on the table and ready to be inhaled enjoyed in no time. :)

Easy. Peasy.

(I wonder how you say that in Thai?)

  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 46 small tortillas

    I kicked this up by adding chili flakes to the marinade. I also added a dash of sesame oil, soy sauce, chili peppers, garlic and ginger powder to the bean sprout mix. I was also going to add chopped cashews, but forgot! Cooked chicken in sesame and olive oil. Great taste, fresh and flavorful. I will try it with cashews next time.
