Lime Chicken Soft Tacos

One of the biggest kitchen challengs I have is how to dress up chicken. I wanted to use the flour tortillas I made, but since they were sort of time consuming, I was looking for quick to make with them. Months ago when I realized how much I loved Mexican, I tagged a recipe for lime chicken from http://www.allrecipes.com/ that fit the bill perfectly. 

This chicken was easy, refreshing and the lime added a nice light flavour to a simple meal. And, while this isn't how I made them, I bet it would be easy to let the chicken marinate all day in the sauce and then quickly cook them up when you got home from work for a fast and healthy weeknight meal.

Lime Chicken Soft Tacos
Makes 8-10 

  • 4 skinless, boneless chicken breasts, cubed
  • 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • 2 tsp white sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 4 green onions, chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tbsp cilantro, chopped
  • 10 6" flour tortillas
  • In a medium bowl, combine vinegar, lime juice, sugar, salt, pepper, green onion, garlic and cilantro.
  • Saute chicken in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat until no longer pink, about 10-12 minutes.
  • Add vinegar mixture and simmer for an additional 10 minutes.
  • Serve lime chicken in warm tortillas topped with tomatoes, lettuce, cheese, salsa and sour cream.

  5. I'm still in awe of your home made flour tortillas! You definitely gave them a "worthy" filling - sounds yummy with the marinated chicken.

  6. I am also looking for new ideas for chicken. Thanks for sharing this great lime one. My favorite marinade that is a good ol' stand-by is 1/3 c. Canola or Olive oil, 1 T. dijon, 2 T. lemon juice, salt and pepper. Then grill it on a grill pan or BBQ.

  7. Holy yum!!! Tacos are a staple in our house and I'm always looking for some good new recipes - and will definitely be trying it with your tortillas!!
