Instructions

Char corn
1
  • Heat a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat.
  • While the pan heats, pat corn dry with paper towels.
  • When hot, add corn to the dry pan. Cook, stirring occasionally, until dark-brown in spots, 5-6 min.
  • Transfer corn to a medium bowl. Add half the spicy mayo. Season with salt and pepper, then stir to combine.
  • Carefully wipe the pan clean.
Pickle cucumbers and make slaw
2
  • Meanwhile, thinly slice cucumber.
  • Roughly chop cilantro.
  • Add vinegar, 1 tsp (2 tsp) sugar and a pinch of salt to a small pot.
  • Heat the pot over medium heat, swirling occasionally, until sugar dissolves. Remove the pot from heat.
  • Add cucumbers to pickling liquid. Set aside.
  • Add 1 1/2 tbsp (3 tbsp) pickling liquid and 1 tbsp (2 tbsp) oil to a large bowl. Season with garlic salt and pepper, then whisk to combine.
  • Add coleslaw mix and half the cilantro to vinaigrette, then toss to coat. Set aside.
Prep chicken
3
  • Add panko to a shallow dish.
  • Pat chicken dry with paper towels.
  • Cover each chicken breast with plastic wrap. Using a rolling pin or heavy-bottomed pan, carefully pound each chicken breast until 1/2-inch thick.
  • Season with pepper and remaining garlic salt.
  • Coat chicken all over with remaining spicy mayo.
  • Working with one chicken breast at a time, press both sides into panko to coat completely.
  • When corn is done, heat the same pan over medium.
Shallow fry chicken
4
  • When the pan is hot, add 1/3 cup oil or enough to completely cover the bottom of the pan. Wait 30 seconds for the oil to heat, then add chicken. (NOTE: For 4 ppl, cook chicken in 2 batches, removing any bits from the oil with a slotted spoon before adding more oil for the second batch.)
  • Shallow fry until golden-brown and cooked through, 3-4 min per side.** (NOTE: Reduce heat to medium-low if chicken starts to brown too fast.)
  • Transfer chicken to a wire rack, then sprinkle a pinch of salt over top. Set aside to rest, 3-5 min.
Make sticky chili sauce and warm tortillas
5
  • Meanwhile, combine honey-garlic sauce, 1 1/2 tbsp (3 tbsp) pickling liquid and 1 tbsp chili-garlic sauce in a small bowl. (NOTE: Reference heat guide.)
  • Wrap tortillas in paper towels.
  • When chicken is done, microwave until tortillas are warm and flexible, 1 min. (TIP: You can skip this step if you don't want to warm the tortillas!)
Finish and serve
6
  • Thinly slice chicken.
  • Drain cucumbers and discard pickling liquid.
  • Divide coleslaw between tortillas. Top with corn, chicken and pickled cucumbers.
  • Drizzle sticky chili sauce over tacos.
  • Sprinkle remaining cilantro over top.
