Lime Chicken Soft Tacos Recipe

Hey Lauren,

In the spirit of the new year I thought it was time to lighten things up a little. I love these soft tacos filled with chicken sauteed in red wine vinegar, garlic, onion, and lime juice. To keep them a bit on the healthy side, I topped them with light sour cream and light Mexican cheese. The original recipe called for oregano which I replaced with cilantro because, as you already know, I am addicted to cilantro and it mixed perfectly with the lime. They’re also very easy – it’s a one skillet recipe with only two steps.

xoxo,
Jennifer

    the combo is amazing. the original recipe called for oregano, which seemed weird, so i replaced it with cilantro (my addiction) which was perfect with the lime. thanks for the comment :)
