Hawaiian BBQ Chicken Tacos
Hawaiian BBQ Chicken Tacos: They’re ready in 30 minutes and make up the perfect quick and easy summer meal. The pineapple slaw is a family favorite!
For the Chicken
skinless chicken breasts; diced
Salt & pepper
For the Slaw
large red onion
diced (or use a can of pineapple chunks)
large green pepper
Juice of 2 small limes
Salt & pepper
soft taco shells
Shredded iceberg lettuce
cilantro and lime wedges
Make the Chicken:
Heat the oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat. Add the chicken and fry it until it's browned on all sides, stirring occasionally. This should take 3-4 minutes.
Pour the BBQ sauce and pineapple juice over the chicken (careful, it might bubble up!) and stir it well. Cook for 4-5 minutes or until the sauce is thick enough to evenly coat the chicken.
Check the chicken for doneness, then season to your taste with salt and pepper. (You might also need to add a little honey or sugar depending on your BBQ sauce and pineapple juice.)
Make the Slaw:
Toss the onion, pineapple and green pepper with the lime juice, salt and pepper in a medium bowl. I don't do this in advance, because I love how crunchy the slaw is!
Serve the chicken and slaw with soft taco shells, cilantro and extra lime wedges.
Serve with the chicken, soft taco shells, shredded iceberg lettuce, cilantro and lime wedges.
