Thai Chicken Tacos

My husband loves Thai and Indian food, I don't. I really wish I did, but it is the curry that is put it most of the dishes that I cannot take. I keep trying it to see if maybe my tastes have changed...but they haven't yet. Maybe one day. My hubby was super delighted with this dish. I made it thinking it looked so good, but the curry ruined it for me. If you like curry, you will love this dish, my husband was in heaven!

Thai Chicken Tacos
4-6 chicken tenders
salt and pepper
1/2 cup coconut milk
2 Tbsp Red Curry Paste
1 tsp fish sauce
1 Tbsp diced jalapeños
1 clove garlic
1 Tbsp olive oil
corn tortillas
1 lime
Peanut Drizzle:
1/3 cup peanut butter
1 Tbsp Soy Sauce
1 tsp Sriracha
3 Tbsp warm water
1 tsp sugar

 Mix together coconut milk, red curry paste and fish sauce.
 Dice jalapeños and garlic.
Season chicken with salt and pepper. Grill for 5-7 minutes per side, until it is cooked through.
Remove chicken and set aside until cool enough to handle. Shred the chicken.

 Heat oil in pan and add jalapeños and garlic.
 Add coconut milk mixture to pan. Turn heat to low and simmer.
 Add chicken to sauce.
 Turn heat to low until ready to serve.
Chop carrots, radishes, cilantro and limes.
Mix together peanut butter, srirancha, soy sauce, sugar and water.

 Serve tacos with chicken, veggies and peanut drizzle.
