Wine Pairings by @grapefriend

Nothing turns up the heat like buffalo sauce, and you’ll want some sweetness to counterbalance it. Reach for an off-dry Riesling.

We’re loving a Czech Pilsner here for a cool down.

TK Table Talk:

Aside from these tacos, what’s the most impressive meal you’ve ever cooked?

What To Do:

1. Chicken: may arrive slightly frozen. Thaw as needed.

2. Poach Chicken: Massage chicken with ½ teaspoon salt and ¼ teaspoon pepper. Add to a medium sauce pan. Cover with cold water by 1-inch. Bring the pot to a boil over high heat. Immediately reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes. Remove pot from heat and cover. Allow to sit until the chicken is cooked through (about 12 minutes). Remove to a cutting board to cool slightly. Rinse pan.

3. Make Greens Topping: While chicken is cooking. Chop the lettuce. In a medium bowl, whisk together the lime juice, 1 tablespoon canola oil, ½ teaspoon salt and ¼ teaspoon pepper, blue cheese, and 2 teaspoons water. Right before serving, add in the lettuce and toss to coat.

4. Make Buffalo Sauce: Once the chicken is resting on a cutting board, add the sriracha, butter and 1 tablespoon oil to the medium sauce pan. Stir and place over low heat.

5. Shred Chicken: Using two forks, shred the chicken. Add chicken to the sriracha mixture and stir. Turn off heat and cover.

6. Char Tortillas: Heat tortillas by placing directly over a gas burner or under a broiler until blackened in places on both sides. PLEASE don’t skip this step, you’ll be missing out on big flavor.

To Serve: Divide chicken between the tortillas. Top each with the blue cheese dressed lettuce.


Sure, our TK food containers are recyclable, but we’d rather you upcycle them first. We’re partial to using them to sprout our garden seeds, but we’d love to see how creative you are! Tag us in your photos with @terraskitchen and #terraskitchen.
