bobby flay's chicken taco recipe
These aren’t your average chicken tacos — Bobby’s sweet and spicy version is filled with grilled poblanos, barbecued onions and fresh coleslaw. Lean chicken breasts are seasoned with some of his favorites: ancho chili powder, cinnamon, cumin and light brown sugar.

Editor’s Note: If you’re looking to cut down the prep time to make this a weeknight meal, try the following:

1. Buy packaged cabbage-mix that has already been shredded.
2. If you don’t have time to make Bobby’s delicious Fire Roasted Green Chile Guacamole, substitute it with your favorite salsa, especially a tomatillo-based salsa.

chicken salad pita with baba ghanoush

Leftover grilled chicken and store-bought baba ghanoush is used to make this flavorful Mediterranean-style sandwich in a flash. What’s baba ghanoush you say? It’s a savory salad made with grilled eggplant, garlic, tahini and other seasonings. Even though this is a sandwich, the combination of chicken, eggplant, cucumbers, tomatoes and pita bread make for a filling meal either for lunch or dinner.

Editor’s note: If your supermarket doesn’t carry pre-made baba ghanoush, try an olive tapenade spread or watch Alton Brown make it and try his recipe.
