California Dreamin’ Chicken Taco with Peach Slaw

Ingredients

¼ cup 50 mL mayonnaise, light or regular
¼ cup 50 mL plain yogurt
1 tbsp 15 mL lime juice
1 1 clove of garlic, minced
½ tsp 2 mL salt
pinch of cayenne pepper
1 can (14 oz/398 mL) California Cling peach halves, in fruit juice or light syrup
2 cups 500 mL packaged coleslaw or broccoli slaw mix
¼ cup 50 mL chopped coriander
4 4 skinless boneless chicken cutlets
2 tsp 10 mL TexMex seasoning
8 8 large taco shells or small flour tortillas
Hot sauce (optional)

Directions

In a bowl, stir mayonnaise with yogurt, lime juice, garlic, salt and cayenne. Grease grill and preheat barbecue to medium-high.

Drain peaches well and chop. Place in a bowl along with slaw, coriander and half the mayo mixture. Stir.

Sprinkle both sides of chicken with TexMex seasoning and a pinch of salt if there isn’t any in the seasoning mix. Set on barbecue and grill turning halfway through until cooked, 4 to 6 minutes in total. Thinly slice.

To assemble, warm shells, then add chicken to shells, drizzle with a bit of remaining mayo mixture and hot sauce, if using. Then top with slaw.

Servings: 8

*If barbecue is not available, sauté chicken fillets, turning once, in a large saucepan with 1 tbsp (15 mL) of oil until cooked through (approx. 6 to 8 mins. depending on thickness of chicken).
