Dishing Up the Dirt

Chicken Tacos with Bok Choy & Radish Slaw

These tacos are fabulous. They are simple to prepare and bursting with farm fresh flavors. Taylor loved them so much and requested that I make them again for our neighbors who will be joining us for dinner at the farm this weekend. The bok choy and radish slaw is delicious on its own and can be served in many other ways as a side salad or even garnished on top of a burger. These particular tacos tasted extra delicious after a long and hot day spent in the dirt. I hope you all enjoy them as much as we do.

Cheers from Tumbleweed Farm!

    My experience is pressure cooking gets you a more intense flavor than slow cooking or other techniques.Throw boneless chicken pieces into the bottom of a hot pressure cooker pot to sear. Once seared on both sides throw in a half cup to a cup of chicken stock, throw the lid on, and pressure cook it for ~5 minutes on high, quick vent, and then shred (I use my stand mixer).

  2. Tacos have never looked so gorgeous or delicious! These are a sure Taco Tuesday win!!!

  3. YUM. Love the idea of adding bok choy into a slaw!
