Looking for a quick, easy and delicious meal idea? Look no further!

I love whipping up a big batch of these tacos for a super tasty lunch or dinner. While the ingredients seem simple, the flavours really come together to create a flavourful meal.

I like using prepared coleslaw mix in this recipe to speed up the process but feel free to shred your own cabbage or lettuce if you prefer. I also prefer to use whole wheat tortillas but use whatever you like! I've also enjoyed this as a salad without the tortilla and it's just a delicious.

Cut chicken breasts into bite sized pieces and place in large resealable freezer bag.

For the peanut sauce

In a mason jar with a lid, combine peanut butter, brown sugar, lime juice, soy sauce, garlic, ginger, sriracha and hot water.
Whisk or shake vigorously until smooth and combined.
Allow to sit covered in the fridge to allow the flavours to blend, at least 30 minutes.
