Ingredients

  • 3-4 boneless skinless chicken breasts, pounded to 1/2 inch thickness
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons Caribbean seasoning (store-bought OR see below for homemade version)
  • 8 taco-sized soft flour tortillas
  • 2 cups cole slaw (without dressing)

Caribbean Salsa

  • 1/2 red bell pepper, diced
  • 1/2 small red onion, chopped
  • 1 mango, diced
  • 1 cup pineapple, diced
  • 1/4 cup cilantro, roughly chopped
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice (about 1/2 of a juicy lime)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

Instructions

  • Prepare the salsa by combining all ingredients in a bowl and stirring well. Cover and chill until ready to use.
  • Slice chicken breasts into strips (or chop into bite-sized pieces) and place in a bowl. Sprinkle chicken with half of the Caribbean seasoning, stir, then sprinkle with remaining seasoning and toss to coat.
  • Cook chicken in a large greased pan or skillet over medium heat for 5-8 minutes until cooked through.
  • To serve, fill each tortilla with cooked chicken, then top with cole slaw and Caribbean salsa. Serve immediately with fresh limes for drizzling if desired.
