Servings 4 servings
- 3-4 boneless skinless chicken breasts pounded to ½ inch thickness
- 1 ½ tablespoons Caribbean seasoning (see note for recipe)
- 8 taco-sized soft flour tortillas
- 2 cups cole slaw (without dressing)
- ½ red bell pepper diced
- ½ small red onion chopped
- 1 mango diced
- 1 cup pineapple diced
- ¼ cup cilantro roughly chopped
- 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice (about ½ of a juicy lime)
- ½ teaspoon salt
- ½ teaspoon garlic powder
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.
Stir together all seasoning ingredients in a small bowl.
