The Thai vacation you were dreaming of for 2020 may be on the back burner. (Was that just me dreaming of beaches and pad Thai? Aren't we all at this point?) We can't give you one night in Bangkok, but we can give you delicious tacos with Asian-inspired flavors, a ginger-y slaw to die for, and the best part of the chicken, the thigh, as the base. A delicious dinner can take you places that you can't go in person.

Cooking Guidelines

To ensure food safety, the FDA recommends the following as minimum internal cooking temperatures:

  • Steak and Pork 145° F (rest cooked meat, 3 minutes) |
  • Seafood 145° F |
  • Chicken 165° F |
  • Ground Beef 160° F |
  • Ground Turkey 165° F |
  • Ground Pork 160° F

Customize It Instructions

  • If using whole chicken breasts, pat dry and cut into 1" dice. Follow same instructions as chicken thighs, cooking until chicken reaches minimum internal temperature.

  • If using diced chicken breasts, follow same instructions as chicken thighs, cooking until chicken reaches minimum internal temperature.

  • If using shrimp, pat dry. Follow same instructions as chicken thighs in step 3, cooking until shrimp reaches minimum internal temperature, 2-3 minutes per side.

  1. 1

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Stem, seed, remove ribs, and thinly slice red bell pepper. Stem cilantro, reserving leaves whole. Pat chicken dry, and season all over with a pinch of salt. Don't worry about trimming. Excess fat will render while cooking and add flavor.

  2. 2

    Make the Slaw

    In a mixing bowl, combine slaw mix and mayonnaise. Stir in ginger (to taste). Taste, and season with ¼ tsp. salt and a pinch of pepper, if desired. Set aside.

  3. 3

    Cook the Peppers and Chicken

    Place a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil. Add red bell pepper and chicken to hot pan and stir occasionally until pepper is tender and chicken reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 5-7 minutes.

  4. 4

    Add the Sauce

    Add orange sauce and soy sauce to hot pan. Bring to a simmer. Once simmering, remove from burner.

  5. 5

    Warm Tortillas and Finish Dish

    Wrap tortillas in a damp paper towel and microwave until warm, 30-60 seconds. Plate dish as pictured on front of card, placing chicken and red bell pepper in tortillas and topping with slaw and cilantro. Bon appétit!
