Crispy Chicken Soft Tacos with Black Bean, Corn and Cherry Tomato Salsa – Black Box Goodies

If you haven’t read my last recipe involving SampleCo’s latest Black Box campaign read here. So, Arnotts Light and Crispy Lime & Cracked Pepper Shapes? In Tacos? What IS this witchcraft? Simple! Lime and Cracked Pepper would go excellent with Tex-Mex type flavours so I made Tacos by using the Shapes to crumb some chicken strips for extra flavour.

Tacos-1

Using random things to crumb chicken strips for tacos is one of my favourite ways to make Tacos a little different every time. I’ve used blitzed up Corn Chips, Meal Mates for their poppyseeds and boring old breadcrumbs spiked with some interesting spices like Smoked Paprika, Cumin, Coriander, Garlic/Onion/Ginger Powder to mention a few.

Tonights lot along with the aforementioned crumbing courtesy of Arnotts included a Black Bean, Corn and Cherry Tomato Salsa which is simple to make and adds even more flavour. Take a Tin of Corn in brine and drain, Chop two punnets of Cherry Tomatoes and add to a pan over a medium heat with the Corn and some Cumin Seeds and a teaspoon of Smoked Paprika – of course don’t forget to Season with Salt and Pepper. Cook down the tomatoes ’til they start to break apart (add a little water to the pan to help this along), then open a tin of Ortega Black Beans with Diced Jalapenos, drain and rinse then dump in the pan. Heat the beans through and set aside.

As for the chicken, grab a couple of boxes of The Lime & Cracked Pepper shapes and blitz in a blender until breadcrumbish in consistency. Coat all your chicken strips in flour, then beaten egg, then your Arnotts Crumbs and bake in the oven until cooked through.

I served mine with a bit of lettuce, and a bit of Heinz Seriously Good Southwest Chipotle Mayonnaise drizzled over the top, (or a bit of Sour Cream) with a bit of fresh Coriander and some Paprika dusted over the top.

These were an absolute winner with the Mrs too 😀
