Ingredients

Chicken

  • 2 boneless chicken breasts
  • 3 tablespoons sriracha
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 2 teaspoons fresh lime juice
  • kosher salt

Avocado Cream

  • 1 avocado
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 2 teaspoons fresh lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon fresh cilantro, minced
  • pinch kosher salt

For Tacos

  • 1 - 2 cups shredded cabbage
  • sriracha
  • fresh cilantro

Instructions

  • Season chicken with kosher salt.
  • In a medium bowl mix together sriracha, honey, and lime juice.  Add chicken to a large plastic bag and add sriracha honey mixture.  Put in fridge and let marinate for at least 30 minutes and up to 24 hrs (the longer the better!). 
  • When you're ready to eat, heat grill or grill pan. High for the grill and medium for a grill pan.  Turn grill down to medium and grill chicken until done, approximately 6-7 minutes on each side, until the center reaches 165 degrees.  Note that the marinade will make the skin brown quickly.  
  • Meanwhile, add avocado, sour cream, lime juice, cilantro, and salt to a food processor and cream.  
  • Shred chicken and add to tortillas.  Top with shredded cabbage and drizzles of the avocado cream, sriracha, and fresh cilantro and enjoy!
