These tacos are loaded with sweet and savory flavor! Chicken is marinated in a teriyaki sauce and pineapple juice marinade and grilled to perfection. Then it is tossed in a glaze, and topped with a spicy pineapple slaw for the perfect combination of sweet, spicy, and savory.
For the chicken:
1cup Kikkoman® Teriyaki Marinade & Sauce
6ozpineapple juice(1 can)
2tspKikkoman® Sesame Oil
For the slaw:
1tbspKikkoman® Sriracha Hot Chili Sauce
Combine the teriyaki sauce, pineapple juice, brown sugar and sesame oil in a medium bowl and whisk until all the sugar is dissolved. Divide the marinade in half and place the chicken in one half and chill for 30 minutes.
While the chicken is marinating, make the slaw by combining the cabbage, carrots, pineapple, cilantro, mayonnaise, sriracha, and lime juice together and tossing until evenly coated.
Next, take the remaining half of the marinade and place it in a sauce pan over medium high heat until it comes to a simmer, continue to simmer for 5-8 minutes or until it is reduced by about half and thickened, then remove from the heat.
Remove the chicken from the refrigerator and grill over medium heat for 4-6 minutes per side. Once done, let rest for 5 minutes, then chop into small bite-sized pieces. Toss the chopped chicken with the thickened marinade.
Assemble tacos by warming the tortillas in a hot skillet then filling it with a generous scoop of chicken, a spoonful of pineapple slaw and garnish with a sprinkle of cilantro.
