Chicken Tacos

Here's a little something for the weekend.






Cover chicken breast in dry rub of salt, cayenne pepper, cumin seed, coriander seed and a little sugar. Grill until you have a nice char on the outside but it's moist inside, let rest.
In the meantime, heat some vinegar sugar and salt (I add a little thyme and bay leaf) until the sugar has dissolved. Add some sliced red onions, jalapeno and carrots and let sit.
Grill some corn tortillas, top with chicken, pickled salad and drizzle with some lime creme fraiche.



Add to that a little drinky that my sister made and you have a great start to the weekend: muddle lots of mint and cucumber, strain into a shaker, add ice, lime juice and tequila to taste. Shake and serve with cucumber slices and mint to garnish. Feel free to add a splash of french lemonade if you need to make them less 'adult'.

  5. Ummm, my husband is a major Tex Mex expert and we're definitely saving this recipe! I love the idea of adding the pickled salad!
