Chicken Tacos

Sometimes, the motivation to cook a certain dish or meal may not necessarily come from a cookbook. For example, this simple chicken tacos came from one of my visit to a local market stores in Vancouver. I was perusing at a store selling many Mexican food products and thought why not prepare a Mexican meal for a change? So, I started talking to the lady who works at the store about Mexican cuisine and she gave me a few good tips to make a great Mexican meal. In the end, I decided to make some soft tacos with chicken for dinner. I must admit, the tacos turned out really good.

2 pcs Chicken Breast, boneless, skinless
1 Recipe Mexican Salsa
½ Recipe Salsa Verde
½ kg Fresh Corn Tortilla
Lime, cut in wedges or smaller pieces
A handful of Fresh Cilantro


In a medium saucepan, place the chicken breast with enough water to cover. Bring it to a boil and reduce the heat and simmer the chicken for about 15 to 20 minutes or until fully cooked. Remove the chicken from the pan and let it cool, and shred.

Heat the tortilla in a skillet or grill for about 6 to 8 seconds, or until softened. To serve the tacos: Place some shredded chicken on each tortilla, top with both salsa, cilantro and some lime juice. Fold the tortilla in half and serve warm.

I'm actually laughing at myself! What have I got into? Trying to make dumplings?? Well, I have seen my late grandmother make them a long time ago. I can remember the ingredients but not the measurements! So, it took me about two hours to come up with the perfect recipes, and I'm glad I did! It was an instant hit! They were all gone, all gobbled up! Make the dough first, add about 480 to 500g of all-purpose flour with 300ml of water. Knead the dough and let it rest. You should be able to make 40 dumplings with the dough. Meanwhile, prepare the filling for the dumplings. Click here for the dumpling wrappers video.
