Quick Lunch Recipe – Chicken Adobo Tacos with Mango slaw and lime crema

adobo chicken tacos with mango

Since I work a few days from home I have a challenge around lunch time – what is for lunch? Not having a cafeteria close by I often find myself eating the worst stuff for lunch…meaning whatever I can find laying around like a chocolate bar or bag of chips. So I have started to use this new service called “Hello Fresh” which sends you a box of fresh ingredients and recipe cards and all you have to do is unpack the box and follow the steps.

Today I made Smoky Adobo Chicken Tacos and thought I share the recipe with you. Since its lunchtime I didn’t had a lot of time to take pictures but the recipe is much more important :-).

Smoky Adobo Chicken Tacos:

Ingredients for 2 people

  • 2 chicken breasts
  • 1 red onion
  • 1 lime
  • 1 can Chipotles in Adobo
  • 6 Flour Tortillas
  • 1 Mango
  • 4 Tablespoon Sour cream
  • 1 Avocado
  • 1 tablespoon oil


  1. Crema: Zest one lime, combine with the sour cream and a squeeze of lime. Season with salt and pepper.
  2. Mango Slaw: Peel the mango and cut into thin strips/matchsticks. Halve, peel and finely chop half the red onion. Mix together and add juice of 1/2 a lime, season with a pinch of salt and pepper.
  3. Butterfly the chicken breast, season with salt and pepper and brush both sides with 1 tablespoon of the Adobo sauce.
  4. Heat oil in a pan and cook the chicken 5-7 minutes from both sides.
  5. Wrap tortillas into a damp towel and heat up in the Microwave.
  6. Scoop out the avocado and mash up with a fork and season with a little bit of salt and pepper.
  7. When the meat is done, thinly slice it, spread the mashed avocado onto the tortillas and top with chicken, mango slaw and lime crema.

Guten Appetit!
