Chicken lime tacos


  • 1 1/2 pounds skinless, boneless chicken breast meat - cubed
  • 1/8 cup red wine vinegar
  • 1/2 lime, juiced
  • 1 teaspoon white sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 2 green onions, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 10 (6 inch) flour tortillas (or use whole wheat tortillas)
  • 1 tomato, diced
  • 1/4 cup shredded lettuce
  • 1/4 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese(can use reduced fat of any kind of cheese if you like)
  • 1/4 cup salsa


  1. Saute chicken in a medium saucepan over medium high heat for about 20 minutes. Add vinegar, lime juice, sugar, salt, pepper, green onion, garlic and oregano. Simmer for an extra 10 minutes.
  2. Heat an iron skillet over medium heat. Place a tortilla in the pan, warm, and turn over to heat the other side. Repeat with remaining tortillas. Serve lime chicken mixture in warm tortillas topped with tomato, lettuce, cheese and salsa.

These were super yummy!  My hubby really loved these too!  My daughter, who is a picky eater and won't eat anything spicy, wouldn't eat the chicken part.  These aren't spice thought, I just think she didn't like the oregano and the tart flavor.  I thought they were awesome!  Yet another nice healthy dinner that doesn't require a lot of cooking.  I think the total calorie per serving of one tortilla is about 200, but would be less with whole wheat tortillas and reduced fat cheese.
