Easy yet scrumptious tacos with fried chicken, tomato salsa, red cabbage and cilantro.


  • 1 pound chicken breast, boneless and skinless
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 3 tablespoons canola oil
  • 2 tomatoes, diced
  • 1 cucumber, diced
  • 2 tablespoons green chili peppers, diced
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • 1/2 cup chopped red cabbage
  • Fresh cilantro leaves for garnish
  • 8-10 corn tortillas


  1. In a small bowl, whisk together all the spices and set aside.
  2. Cut the chicken breast into cubes and coat them with the spice mixture.
  3. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the chicken and cook for fry about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally until the chicken is cooked, for 15-20 minutes. If it gets too dry, just add a little water to prevent burning and continue cooking. Remove the skillet from heat.
  4. Now you can prepare the tomato salsa. In a medium bowl, combine diced tomatoes, cucumber, green chili peppers and lime.
  5. Share the chicken in corn taco shells, top with the quick tomato salsa, red cabbage, cilantro leaves and extra lime juice if you like.
  6. Serve with extra green chili peppers and boiled corn.
