A rich, aromatic marinade of soy sauce, garlic and cilantro imparts incredible flavor to the moist chicken tenders in these enticing Thai tacos. A vibrant cabbage slaw provides fantastic texture, while a hint of citrus ties it all together. When buying cabbage, look for heads that are heavy for their size, with crisp, tightly packed leaves.
