BBQ Chicken Tacos with Caramelized Red Onions
by Melissa from No. 2 Pencil
Serves around 4
2 cooked chicken breasts – shredded
1/2 cup of pre made BBQ sauce
2 tablespoons of honey (optional)
2 small red onions, thinly sliced
Salt and pepper
Shredded Jack Cheese
Start by sautéing onions in a drizzle of olive oil, on a medium high heat for about two minutes. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Then turn heat to medium low and stir occasionally until onions are soft and sweet. Let onions cook while you prepare the rest of the tacos.
Combine cooked, shredded chicken with BBQ sauce and honey. The honey is optional, I like to add it to bottled BBQ sauce to improve the flavor and consistency a bit. Add more or less BBQ sauce depending on your preference.
Once onions are done, pile chicken, onions, shredded jack cheese and cilantro onto warm corn tortillas.
