I cook chicken tacos all the time! In fact, I cook them so much I was getting tired of them. There are only so many ways to make a chicken taco taste good.
But…this weekend my family asked for chicken tacos…yet again! I decided to take a little inspiration from a cookbook I have. The end result was this amazing Korean taco recipe. If you love these then take a look at my other easy home cooked recipes.
Korean Taco Recipe
Not only are these tacos absolutely delicious but this recipe cooks up in under 30 minutes. Major win!
- 1 pound chicken breasts (cut up into bite size pieces)
- 6 Tbsp. of soy sauce
- 2 Tbsp. of lime juice. (I used fresh lime juice)
- 4 tsp. of brown sugar
- 3 tsp. freshly grated ginger
- 4 cloves of garlic minced or grated (I like it grated…no chunks!)
- 2 tsp. cornstarch
- 3 tsp. Asian chili sauce
- 1/2 tsp. rice wine vinegar
- 1 Tbsp. olive oil
- 1 cup kimchi
- Flour or corn tortillas
- 1/2 cup cilantro
- Sriracha sauce (optional)
Combine soy sauce, lime juice, brown sugar, ginger, garlic, cornstarch, Asian chili sauce and rice wine vinegar in a small bowl.
Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Make sure the oil gets nice and hot! Once the oil is hot add chicken to the skillet and cook until the meat is no longer pink in the middle. (About 10 minutes).
Once your chicken is cooked through, turn down the heat and add the sauce and stir-fry together. Make sure the sauce is even distributed over the chicken. Cook together for about 3 minutes.
While the sauce and chicken are cooking do a rough chop on the kimchi. Add kimchi to the pan during the last minute of cooking just to slightly warm the kimchi.
Serve with flour tortillas and cilantro. My husband likes to drizzle Sriracha sauce over his taco, this is totally optional but keep in mind it kicks up the spice by like a 100!
