Hot Sauce
Make the Chicken
In a large skillet, heat 2 Tbsp. olive oil over medium high heat.
Add in chicken and season with a little salt and pepper. Cook for a few minutes before adding in garlic and green onions.
While the chicken is cooking make the sauce. In a small bowl combine lemon juice, sesame oil, sweet soy sauce, Sonomic Gold, ginger, pepper flakes, and sesame seeds.
In a separate bowl mix cornstarch and water then add to the sauce and whisk to combine.
When the chicken is cooked through add the sauce and cook for another minute or so until sauce thickens and coats chicken. Turn off the heat and add the fresh basil and more green onions.
Warm four tortillas in the oven, or use tongs to char over your stovetop.
Top tortillas with shredded cabbage, cucumbers, chicken, and crumbled nori.
Serve with your favorite hot sauce, like Sriracha, and enjoy!
