It’s Friday! Fri-yay! I don’t know what your Friday dinner routine looks like, but honestly, I’m pretty worn out by the end of the week.
Often I get Ben to make his world-famous pizza crust or we order some sushi.
But now we have a new SUPER easy alternative for Friday, and it’s actually a well-balanced, healthier meal: these sweet chili chicken tacos!
When I say easy, I mean easy. And fast!
You know, I used to feel a bit guilty about my cooking habits. I used to wonder if I was lazy because I refuse to cook something that takes longer than 30 minutes, or requires an overnight marinade, ingredients that I need to buy at the Asian grocery store, or makes a bazillion dishes. But then I realized, no. I’m not lazy. I have priorities, and they just don’t involve a ton of effort when it comes to dinner.
Also: there are a LOT of people who are looking for easy, healthy, FAST dinner recipes. Maybe you’re one of them!
If so, these sweet chili chicken tacos are probably just perfect for you!
By using Wednesday’s slow cooker sweet chili chicken, all you have to do is prep up the slaw and stir together the yogurt sauce.
I was inspired to mix some extra sweet chili sauce with some yogurt. Fun fact: in Australia when you order potato wedges, they arrive with sour cream and sweet chili sauce. And those flavors are ah-mazing together! So that was my inspiration here 🙂
Altogether, this dinner is ready in 15 minutes. If that’s not easier than making pizza, or even ordering sushi, I don’t know what is!
