Baked Asian Sesame Chicken Tacos – a simple recipe perfect for busy weeknights and Cinco de Mayo. Best of all, a short recipe video. Layered with sweet and savory sesame chicken, rainbow vegetables, and a blend of 3 cheeses. Plus recipe video.
This recipe starts off by combining some precooked chicken with a sweet and savory Asian-inspired sauce over medium heat.
Once the filling is heated up, divide it among some taco shells and layer with cheese. I used Monterey, Colby Jack and Cheddar. Bake the tacos in the oven until the cheese gets nice and bubbly, then top with a rainbow slaw, tomatoes, avocado and any other toppings you like!
