Slow Roasted Chicken Tacos with Gorgonzola Slaw

Seriously Delish, page 183

Jessica usually doesn’t disappoint with tacos, but I wasn’t in love with this one. I think the problem here was me, and not the recipe. I just don’t love gorgonzola. It’s a key flavor here, and I just couldn’t get behind it. This is the inherent problem with cooking through the entire book. There are just some things I’m not going to like.

What I did like was the spice rub on the chicken, a blend of chili powder, cumin, onion powder, and smoked paprika, that is similar to a spice blend that Jessica uses on her blog frequently.

And bone in dark meat was a nice change of pace from boneless skinless lifeless breast meat.

I also enjoyed the concept of a slaw on tacos, the crunch from the cabbage is way better than shredded lettuce, but next time, I’ll ditch the blue cheese.

Don’t get me wrong. I still ate them, and the leftovers. I just didn’t love it.
