These Mini Honey Sriracha Chicken Taco Boats are spicy and sweet chicken tacos topped with an avocado crema. When I was brainstorming ideas for these tacos I opened my fridge and low and behold a bottle of Sriracha sauce was staring me in the face. My husband puts that stuff on everything he eats – appropriate or not. You just can’t beat the sweet and spicy combo of the sweet honey and the spicy Sriracha. I tested this out several times to get the sauce perfect!

Half of the marinade is used to actually marinate the chicken and the other half acts as a sauce after the chicken has been cooked.

Print
Serves: 12
Ingredients
Marinade:
  • 3 Tablespoons honey
  • 2 Tablespoons Sriracha
  • 2 teaspoons soy sauce
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • salt to taste
Avocado Crema:
  • 1 ripe avocado, pitted and mashed
  • ¼ cup sour cream
Tacos:
  • 1 lb boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into bite sized pieces
  • 1 Tablespoon oil
  • 1 cup cooked rice
  • 12 Old El Paso Mini Soft Taco Boats, warmed
Instructions
  1. For the Marinade: In a medium bowl, stir together the honey, Sriracha, soy sauce, and garlic. Salt to taste.
  2. In a large bowl or resealable bag, add the chicken and half of the marinade. Reserve the rest to top the cooked chicken later. Marinate for 30 minutes.
  3. For the Avocado Crema: In a small bowl, stir together the mashed avocado and sour cream adding more sour cream if desired. For a really creamy crema use a food processor to combine the avocado and sour cream. Chill in the fridge until serving.
  4. In a large skillet, heat the oil over medium heat. Add the chicken to the skillet and discard the marinade it was in. Cook the chicken over medium heat until no longer pink. Remove from pan and toss in reserved marinade.
  5. To assemble the taco boats: Add rice to the bottom of each taco boat and add some chicken, Avocado Crema and more Sriracha if desired.
Notes
To prevent the Avocado Crema from browning if not serving immediately, add a squeeze of lime or make sure it is in an airtight container.
