Fried Chicken Tacos


  • 2 Tbsp. shredded Mexican or cheddar cheese
  • Medium sized flour tortilla
  • Fried chicken tender or breast
  • 1/2 cup coleslaw
  • pinch chopped cilantro
  • 2 Tbsp. pickled red onion

Green Sauce:

  • 4 Tbsp. ranch dressing
  • 1/4 cup cilantro
  • juice of 1 lime


  1. Blend the ranch dressing, cilantro and lime for 1 minute. Set aside in refrigerator until ready to use.
  2. Prepare fried chicken by making from scratch or reheating store bought chicken. Meanwhile…
  3. Sprinkle cheese along edge of skillet over medium heat. Once cheese begins to melt, press a tortilla firmly to bind to cheese.
  4. Once chicken is thoroughly heated, place onto tortilla and top with coleslaw, cilantro, jalapeno slices, pickled onions, and sauce.
  5. Once cheese starts to harden and turn golden brown, plate with lime wedges and a side of green sauce.

*if making pickled onions and coleslaw from scratch, add in chopped red onion and a splash of white vinegar to a saucepan, half as much of apple cider vinegar, and a bit of maple syrup. Bring to a boil until the onions become pink. Pour remaining liquid into a dish and combine it with chopped green cabbage as well as 1 to 2 Tbsp. Mayo depending on preference. Combine and store in the refrigerator until ready to use.*
