How to Make Shredded Spicy Chicken Tacos

So how exactly do we make the sweet and spicy shredded chicken tacos?

First, place all the chicken in a large zip bag, add the marinade, seal, toss to combine, and into the fridge, it goes. This is a very “easy peasy, go on about your business” type of recipe.

I also like to do this step the night before because it makes taco Tuesday less about work and more about the flavor.

Once the chicken has soaked in all the Sriracha goodness, remove it from the marinade and cook on the grill or skillet, it tastes incredible either way.

After the chicken is cooked through transfer it to a plate and allow to rest before shredding with two forks.

That’s it! The hardest part is over and now we can assemble!

Honey Sriracha Sauce for Tacos

You all know how I feel about sauces and drizzles but this Honey Sriracha sauce is the boss!

I like to think of it as the new honey mustard and it’s great for all sorts of things like healthy chicken nuggets, wings, or basting onto grilled meats instead of BBQ sauce.

So if you want your day to consist of crunchy, sweet, and spicy chicken tacos grab a copy of the Taco Tuesday Cookbook and make sure you follow the entire taco series on my Youtube channel.

P.S-Bonus points if you dip the taco in the Honey Sriracha sauce.
