Step 1

Preheat oven to 425°F. Line a large rimmed baking sheet with foil and spray with cooking spray. On a piece of wax paper, mix together the flour and salt. In a shallow bowl, whisk together the egg and water. In another shallow bowl, mix together the panko bread crumbs and sesame seeds. Roll each chicken tender in flour, dusting off the excess, dip in egg wash, then coat well with the sesame panko crumbs. Place the chicken tenders on the baking sheet and spray them with cooking spray. Bake for 15-20 minutes, until lightly golden brown (safe internal temperature of 165°F).

Step 2

Whisk the peanut sauce ingredients together until smooth, adding more water if needed to reach a sauce consistency.

Step 3

While the chicken is baking, stir together the shredded cabbage and rice wine vinegar in a bowl; season with a pinch of salt. Wrap the tortillas in foil and heat in oven for 5 minutes. For each taco, place a chicken tender on a warm flour tortilla and top with sauce, cabbage, peppers and cilantro leaves.

Step 4

Serve immediately.

Step 5

Refrigerate any leftovers.

Wow, what a great taco Teresa. They were delicious. Made as written but left the jalapeno pepper off for my brother in law. We never even missed the hot pepper. What a great sauce, it was simply delicious. Thanks for sharing this quick and easy to make meal that was on the table in 25 minutes. My sister in law took the recipe home with her. I love your recipes they never disappoint.

What a nice surprise! The seeded chicken was crunchy and crisp and the peanut sauce was tasty. The individual parts work together to make terrific Thai tacos. Thank you for sharing the recipe!
