There's not much to taco 'bout here, just go and make these mouth watering green chilli pulled chicken tacos from The Wandering Matilda immediately.

You're going to be the most popular person around in no time at all.


Salsa Verde:

  • Tacos:


Using a food processor or blender, puree the salsa verde ingredients until smooth then transfer to a small pot and boil rapidly and stir regularly for 10 minutes. This will deepen the flavour and colour and bring out the sweetness in the sauce.

While that’s on, mix the spices and olive oil in a bowl with a pinch of salt then coat generously over the chicken.

Heat a non stick pan with a little extra oil over a low heat then fry the chicken until golden and cooked.

Using two forks, shred the chicken then leave aside.

Pour half the green sauce over the pulled chicken then serve in the tacos.

Put the remaining sauce into a little bowl and top over the tacos with the coriander and cotija cheese.


Cotija is a Mexican cheese that brings a creamy saltiness to the dish. Try your darnedest to find it otherwise feta can be substituted.

Of course you can also make this recipe into enchiladas or nachos, no problemo!
