Ingredients

For the Chicken:
¾ cup fresh tomato salsa
½ large yellow onion, chopped
2 large cloves garlic, chopped
½ jalapeno, minced
1 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon pepper
1½ pounds boneless chicken breasts and thighs
½ cup water

For the Tacos:
1 small head purple cabbage, shredded or thinly sliced
3 tablespoons rice vinegar
1 tablespoon maple syrup
12 (6-inch) corn tortillas
2 large avocados, sliced
¼ cup French feta, crumbled
¼ cup sour cream
Juice of 1 lime
1 cup PEARLS Sliced Black Olives
¼ cup cilantro leaves
Salt and pepper

Cooking Instructions

Add the salsa, onion, garlic, jalapeno, cumin, salt, and pepper to a large heavy-bottomed pot, like a dutch oven. Nestle in the chicken and pour water over the top. Bring to a simmer over low heat and cook, covered for 1½-2 hours until the chicken falls apart when poked with a wooden spoon. Use a wooden spoon to shred the chicken.
In a medium mixing bowl, toss the cabbage with rice vinegar, maple syrup, and a pinch of salt and pepper until well combined.
In a small bowl, combine the sour cream with the lime juice and season with salt, to taste.
Lightly char the tortillas directly over a medium-low flame, flipping once or warm each tortilla in a dry pan until just pliable, about one minute on each side.
Build the tacos by layering each tortilla with chicken, pickled cabbage, avocado, feta, sour cream, olives, and cilantro.
