Buffalo Chicken Tacos

Buffalo Chicken Tacos adapted from How Sweet It Is

Tacos:

1 1/2 lbs boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into small pieces
3 Tbsp cornstarch
1/3 cup whole wheat flour
1 tsp garlic powder
large pinch of cayenne peppe
ground black pepper, to taste
1/3 cup buffalo wing sauce (I used Frank’s Buffalo Wing) + 4 Tbsp, for drizzling
1 Tbsp olive oil
10 6-8″ flour tortillas

Toppings:

1 avocado, diced
4 oz blue cheese crumbles or gorgonzola
2 cups shredded lettuce
1 large tomato, diced
4 scallions, sliced
chopped cilantro
ranch dressing for drizzling (optional)

Directions:

  1. Heat a skillet over medium-high heat.
  2. In a large bowl, combine cornstarch, flour, cayenne, and garlic powder. Season the chicken pieces with pepper, then dredge in the flour mixture.
  3. Add 1 tablespoon of olive oil to the skillet and once it gets hot, add chicken and brown on both sides – about 3-4 minutes per side. Once the chicken is done, set it aside in a bowl and toss with 1/3 cup buffalo wing sauce.
  4. Assemble 10 tacos, dividing the toppings evenly among each taco. Yield: 5 servings, 2 tacos each.
