Teriyaki Chicken Tacos

with Cabbage Slaw and Pickled Red Onion

REMIX! Here at HelloFresh, we’re all about a mash-up. This week, our chefs combined two dishes that were totally meant to be. Sweet-and-savory teriyaki chicken is piled into steamy tortillas along with pickled red onion and a tangy, crunchy slaw. For a finishing touch, the tacos are sprinkled with sesame seeds. One bite will make your taste buds sing.


Produced in a facility that processes eggs, milk, fish, peanuts, sesame, shellfish, soy, tree nuts, and wheat.

Pickle Onion

Wash and dry produce. Halve, peel, and very thinly slice onion. In a small bowl, combine half the vinegar (you’ll use the rest later), ½ tsp sugar (1 tsp for 4 servings), and a pinch of salt and pepper. Add ¼ of the sliced onion; toss to coat. Set aside, stirring occasionally, until ready to serve.

Make Cabbage Slaw

In a medium bowl, combine sour cream, remaining vinegar, ½ tsp sugar (1 tsp for 4 servings), and sriracha (start with half and add more if you like things spicy). Stir in half the cabbage. Season with salt and pepper. Set aside, stirring occasionally, until ready to serve.

Cook Veggies

Heat a large drizzle of oil in a large pan over medium-high heat. Add remaining onion and cabbage and season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring, until slightly softened, 2-3 minutes.

Cook Chicken

Meanwhile, pat chicken dry with paper towels. Add to pan with veggies along with another drizzle of oil, salt, and pepper. Cook, stirring often, until chicken is browned and cooked through, 4-6 minutes.

Simmer Chicken

Add teriyaki sauce to pan; bring to a boil. Reduce to a low simmer and cook until sauce is slightly thickened and coats chicken and veggies, 4-6 minutes. Stir in half the sesame seeds. Season with salt and pepper.

Finish and Serve

Wrap tortillas in damp paper towels and microwave until warm and pliable, 30 seconds. Divide chicken and veggie mixture (using a slotted spoon if needed) between tortillas. Top with cabbage slaw and pickled onion. Sprinkle with remaining sesame seeds and serve.
