Slap Ya Mama Buffalo Chicken tacos are absolutely delicious. Tangy and buttery smooth wing sauce, combined with the crunchy chicken, and wrapped in a warm tortilla will definitely have you going back for seconds...or even thirds.

Ingredients

Instructions

  • Slice the chicken tenders into pieces. Season the chicken with Slap Ya Mama Original Blend Cajun Seasoning. Dip the chicken pieces into the egg wash, then bread crumbs. Coat the air fryer with Olive oil to prevent sticking. Place the breaded chicken into the air fryer.
  • Depending on the type of air fryer, cook the chicken. We cooked ours at 375° for 22 minutes. Toss the cooked chicken in Slap Ya Mama Buffalo Wing Sauce.
  • Warm the tortillas and assemble the tacos. Place chicken, coleslaw, sliced avocado, and green onions on the tortilla. Then drizzle ranch and Slap Ya Mama Buffalo Wing Sauce over the tacos.

Instructions

Blanching Asparagus

  • Bring a large pot of water to a boil and salt it generously. Fill a large bowl with ice water. Add the asparagus to the boiling water and cook, uncovered, until crisp-tender, or the desired degree of doneness. Scoop the vegetable from the water and immediately put them in the ice water, to stop the cooking and set their color. Cool and drain, and use as desired.

Vegetable Medley

  • In a medium-size pan, heat the olive oil. Add the vegetables to the pan and turn the heat to medium-high. Season the vegetables with Slap Ya Mama Original Blend Cajun Seasoning. Cook the vegetables for 3 to 4 minutes, or until heated through. Lightly coat the vegetable with Tamari Sauce. Cook for a minute more. Transfer the vegetables to a serving bowl and serve immediately.
