Conquer Tacos With Wild Garden

Conquer Tacos With Wild Garden

Sometimes all you need are tacos for dinner! Feeling like Springtime with these tacos 2 ways I cooked up with Wild Garden Foods. Marinated with both the Persian + Turkish marinades with their Garlic Hummus, this was the ultimate taco dinner. Not to mention fast cooking pilafs to go as the perfect side to accompany your meal. What's for dinner? Fried Chicken Tacos and Persian Garlic Tacos. Read on for the full recipe I created of each taco as well as more recipes from Wild Garden on their Website and Instagram. 

What's better than 1 kind of taco, 2 kinds! With this recipe, make 2 different chicken taco flavors in one recipe + one pan = delicious. :) 

Taco 1: Persian Chicken Tacos

  • Wild Garden Persian Marinade
  • 4.5 inch Corn Tortillas
  • 1 bunch Basil
  • 2 Limes
  • 1-2 Pickled Red Onion
  1. Super easy! The first step is to slice red onions and place in a mason jar with your desired spices. Spices can vary from red chili flakes to peppercorns, paprika, salt, pepper and sugar, it's whatever your preference is. 
  2. Mix together 1/2 cup vinegar and 1/2 cup water with a few pinches of sugar and salt.
  3. Add in some purple cabbage, just a little bit of the outside.. this just helps get that pink color. Wait 1-2 days and your onions will be perfectly pickled and have that amazing pink/purple color.
  4. Tip to save time: Boil some hot water in a kettle and just pour A LITTLE over the mixture after you put in the mason jar. 
  • 5-6 Habaneros
  • 1 bunch Baby tomatoes 
  • Garlic Sauce - make a quick garlic sauce with oil, lemon, garlic powder, fresh garlic, pepper, salt and blend until a smooth dressing like consistency 
  • 2 6 oz. Chicken Schnitzel 

Taco 2: Fried Chicken Tacos

  • Wild Garden Turkish Marinade
  • 4.5 Inch Corn Tortillas
  • 2 6 oz. Chicken Schnitzel 
  • 1 Bunch Cilantro
  • Garlic Sauce - make a quick garlic sauce with oil, lemon, garlic powder, fresh garlic, pepper, salt and blend until a smooth dressing like consistency 
  • Red Cabbage - slice on mandolin with some lemon, oil, salt, pepper. Let sit in fridge for about 30 mins. 
  • Corn - Roast with your desired spices in oven 375 degrees for abt 20-30
  • Pomegranate - Sprinkle to taste as garnish 
  • 1 Bunch Baby Tomatoes 
  • Basil 
  • Wild Garden Garlic Hummus mixed with Sriracha
  • Panko crumbs
  • 2 Eggs 
  1. For both of these tacos - assemble them together, this makes it easier! I put it in the oven on a sheet pan together so I didn't make a mess on a stovetop, as well (PROTIP!) Preheat oven to 375 and marinade your chicken for about 1 hour to 1 day, this really just depends on your preference. 1/2 of chicken in Wild Garden Persian Marinade and 1/2 of Chicken in Turkish Marinade. I decided to bread the Turkish marinade one. 
  2. For the breaded chicken, make an egg mixture of 2 eggs beaten, that's it! Put in the panko and toast/cook with the other chicken, cook until chicken is cooked all the way through. About 30-40 mins.
  3. While this is marinating and cooking, get all your other ingredients together (reference above for steps and how to. ) 
  4. Assemble for both of your tacos, so easy, right?! Spread on the Wild Garden Hummus spread, cut the chicken lengthwise into strips so you have those even cuts, put on the picked red onions, corn, garlic spread, basil. For the Persian taco, place on your cabbage salad, pomegrante, habanero and garlic sauce. 
  5. P.S Sprinkle with salt and pepper all the way through to taste. :) 
  6. Enjoy!
