Korean Pulled Chicken Tacos

I’m obsessed with tacos. By now if you’re a regular reader of this blog, then you’ll know they’re my go-to meal at any time of the year. Tacos are amazing because they come together at the very last minute, they deliciously refresh any leftovers you’ve got kicking around in the fridge and you can create different flavours according to what you’re feeling that day.?

These Korean Pulled Chicken Tacos, for instance, are inspired by two different types of cuisine and are absolutely delicious and easy to pull together. If you’re looking for an alternative to the traditional taco fixings for your next taco night, this is the new one to try out right here!?

Pulled chicken is easy to cook on the stovetop if you don’t have a slow cooker. All you have to do is boil the chicken in water for 15 minutes, shred it once it’s cooled, and cook it in your fave sauce/seasonings in a frying pan with some broth. I like to keep some pulled chicken handy for other easy lunch recipes like my Instant Mason Jar Noodle Soup or for some Friday night burritos. It reheats remarkably well without any of that weird leftover chicken taste, so you can cook up some chicken on your meal prep day and have it handy throughout the week.?

One of my favourite restaurants in Toronto, Tilde, features a similar taco and this is definitely where I got the inspiration for these Korean Pulled Chicken Tacos. I used a bit of sesame oil, rice wine vinegar, honey, soy sauce and hot sauce for the pulled chicken itself, and included a variety of my fave veggies. You can definitely mix and match and use whatever’s in your fridge, and you don’t really need an extra sauce because the chicken is full of flavour and is super moist!

A beer and hot sauce are the perfect pairings for this weeknight winner, and the perfect way to relax after a long and difficult day. Mondays might be difficult, but these tacos certainly don’t need to be!?
