We’ve got two full days of school under our belt and I’m happy to announce that Parker has survived. He still insists that school is dumb and he shouldn’t have to go, but I’m guessing a lot of 12-year old boys feel the same way.
I am so excited to share this recipe for Thai Peanut Chicken Tacos with Peanut Sauce! These tacos are truly spectacular and not a recipe you want to miss out on.
Tacos are a huge favorite at our house. I think I’ve mentioned before that Parker would eat at Taco Bell several times a week if he could and he is always wanting me to make tacos for dinner. These Thai Chicken Tacos were an instant hit at our house and I know you’re going to love them too!
Besides the fact they they taste amazing, I also love them because they’re simple to make and you can keep them simple for your picky eaters, or pile on the toppings for your more adventurous kiddos.
The peanut sauce is truly what takes these tacos to the next level. I could drink it! Also, don’t be afraid of the sriracha in the sauce, it just gives it a slight kick, nothing too hot. Remember, I’m the queen of wimpiness when it comes to hot/spicy food and it’s not too hot for me.
♡A must have for these tacos . . .
HONEY ROASTED PEANUTS! Seriously, they take these tacos to a whole new level of crazy delicious. Don’t skimp on the honest roasted peanuts. It might seem a little weird, but just trust me when I tell you they make these tacos amazing.
What you will need for the marinade:
- boneless skinless chicken breasts
- lime juice
- soy sauce
- brown sugar
- vegetable oil or light olive oil
- fish sauce
- cloves garlic, minced
- freshly grated ginger
- chopped green onions
The ingredient list might seem a little the long side, but these chicken tacos are deceptively simple! Simply marinate the chicken and then go fold some laundry, read a book, bake a batch of cookies, etc. You’ve got a little time on your hands.
These Thai Chicken Tacos are AH-MAZING you guys! I made them two nights in a row they were so good and I didn’t get any whining from my boys.
Like I mentioned before, the peanut sauce is magical and steals the show every time! Braydon, who is my pickiest eater, absolutely loved these and kept adding more peanut sauce to his.
If you have the mindset that tacos are only meant to have Mexican flavors, you need to branch out and try these tacos, you absolutely won’t be sorry.
Tacos Tuesdays just got even better!Print
