Author's Notes

I like using tenders because they are already portioned in uniform sizes, making prep a little easier. However, if you prefer using chicken breasts either pound uniformly or slice evenly in 2-inch wide strips. To Bake: Place marinated chicken on a greased baking sheet. Bake at 350ºF for 15-20 minutes, flipping halfway, until chicken registers 160 degrees F (70 degrees C). Shredded Stovetop: Place plain chicken in a saucepan and cover with water. Bring to a boil then simmer for 20 minutes. Remove chicken and shred. Toss with 1/4 cup of marinade sauce, reserving rest for serving sauce.

Cooking Instructions

HIDE IMAGES
Step 1
In a small bowl whisk together Hot Sauce (1/3 cup) , Garlic Powder (1 tsp) , Celery Salt (1/2 tsp) , Smoked Paprika (1/2 tsp) , Ground Black Pepper (1/4 tsp) and Olive Oil (1 Tbsp) . Do not add the honey yet.
Step 2
Remove 1/4 cup of sauce to marinate the chicken in. Place Tyson® Chicken Breasts (1.5 lb) in a ziplock bag or large shallow bowl, add 1/4 cup marinade, and toss evenly to coat. Refrigerate 2-4 hours.
Step 3
Mix Honey (1 Tbsp) into the remaining marinade, cover, and store in the refrigerator for later use.
Step 4
While chicken is marinating, make Blue Cheese slaw at least one hour before serving. Stir together Mayonnaise (1/3 cup) , Blue Cheese (1/3 cup) , Fresh Cilantro (1/3 cup) , Apple Cider Vinegar (1 1/2 Tbsp) , Clover Honey (2 Tbsp) , Salt (1/4 tsp) and Freshly Ground Black Pepper (1/8 tsp) .
Step 5
Add Coleslaw Mix (1 bag) and stir to combine. Cover and chill for 1-2 hours. Slaw will seem dry at first, but as it chills the sauce will become creamier.
Step 6
Heat grill to medium high heat and grease grill grate. Grill chicken undisturbed for 5 minutes on one side, or until char marks appear and chicken releases easily from grill. Flip and cook a few minutes more on other side or until internal temperature reaches 160 degrees F (70 degrees C). Remove chicken and let rest while tortillas are heated or grilled.
Step 7
For grilled tortillas, clean grate then place TortillaLand® Flour Tortillas (12) directly on dry grill. Grill for 2 minutes per side, or until char marks start to appear. Store warm tortillas in foil until ready to serve.
Step 8
For Serving: Chopped cooked chicken and serve on tortillas. Drizzle with reserved marinade. Top each taco with Blue Cheese slaw and any other additional desired toppings.
