Kalbi Chicken Tacos with Red Onion Salsa

Mix up your weekly menu! Provide the ingredients and let your family or guests assemble their own tacos complete with red onion salsa and a fresh squeeze of lime juice.

Directions

Combine soy sauce, sugar, lemon juice, garlic, chillies, sesame oil, curry paste, Kaffir lime leaves, and green onions to form the marinade.
Submerge chicken pieces in the marinade and refrigerate for 12 hours or overnight.
Heat corn or canola oil in a deep pot until approximately 335˚F. Test by adding a small piece of wonton to see if it sizzles.
Holding a wonton with 2 tongs, bend into taco shape and hold while submerging in oil. Fry until crisp. Repeat with remaining 7 wontons. Drain on absorbent paper.
Remove 3/4 cups of the marinade from chicken and bring to gentle boil.
Stir corn starch into small amount of cold water and whisk into hot marinade. Reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes. Set sauce aside.
Remove chicken from marinade pat dry with paper towels. Discard marinade.
Grill pieces in moderately hot grill pan or a barbeque.
Allow chicken to cool slightly and shred into pieces.
To assemble tacos, line a wonton taco with a butter lettuce leaf, warm grilled chicken, a drizzle of marinade sauce, cilantro sprints, and 1 tbsp of red onion salsa.
