spicy teriyaki chick’n tacos


Quick-pickled veggies
Place all ingredients into a 12 oz. jar or container and shake until the sugar is dissolved. Chill in a refrigerator for at least 1 hour.

Hot Sesame Sriracha Mayo
Whisk together all ingredients in a small bowl and refrigerate until ready to assemble tacos.

Taco Assembly
Prepare the Gardein Teriyaki Chick’n Strips according to the package (roughly 10 minutes all together).
Lay out the tortillas for assembly. Divide the gardein between the four tortillas, then top each taco with roughly 2-3 tablespoons of pickled veggies, a few leaves of cilantro and mint, as many jalapeño slices as you prefer, and a tablespoon or more of the sriracha mayo sauce.

Serve immediately!

    The recipe doesn’t say whether or not to add the package’s teriyaki sauce packet. The term “according to the package” could be referring to just browning the chicken strips, or it could include browning the strips and adding the sauce packet. It’s kind of hard to imagine how the teriyaki sauce would taste along with the jalapeno, sriracha, and pickled vegetables. Please clarify.

      Hi Teresa! For this recipe, the chick’n strips should be cooked with the teriyaki sauce as described on the package. Thanks for reaching out! 🙂

    What is coconut sugar? Can it be used for other things? As you can tell, I never heard of it.

      Hi Shery! Coconut sugar is made from the sap of coconut palms and has a slightly different taste than cane sugar. It can be used in the place of cane sugar, and will give you a different flavor. 🙂

    I am just getting started at this.

    I have tried your meatballs and teriyaki chicken and they are the best vegi items I have ever eaten. I have tried other brands but they do not compare.

    Hi Shery. Coconut sugar is palm sugar or jaggery, and it can be used in almost any way any other sweetener can be used. Tastes similar to dark brown sugar.
