Lime Chicken Soft Tacos Recipe
A lime chicken filling with vinegar, sugar, green onion, oregano and light seasoning makes these soft tacos citrusy-good!
Chicken breasts, slow-cooked in Mexican-inspired cilantro-lime salsa, makes tasty taco filling.
This was great! I used to use chicken taco seasoning packets but hated how salty they were so I wanted to try a scratch marinade. This one was awesome. I followed other reviewer's suggestions and doubled the marinade (next time I will triple). I replaced oregano with cilantro, added splash of tequila. I used apple cider vinegar and it was good. I made the tacos nice and healthy by serving on whole wheat tortillas, topped with homemade guacamole (instead of sour cream), black beans, cheese and tomato. Also, I always make chicken tacos with canned chicken (all white meat-I stock up at Costco). I warm the canned chicken in skillet and dust with chili pepper. The chicken just shreds itself when mixed around wih the spatula. So easy and very good!
This is a great easy taco recipe that can be adjusted for anyone's taste. I added a little more lime juice than is called for, just because I'm really into the lime flavor. I also used corn tortillas, for a little more texture. But I would highly recommend this for those nights where you feel like putting minimal effort into your cooking.
Absolutely easy and tasty. I put my chicken in hard shells, replaced the oregano with cilantro and doubled it for 4 pieces of chicken. Perfect amount and it filled 12 taco shells. Super tasty will for sure be making again.
Really good. I read some of the reviews and here are my modifications: 1) marinated 2 hours or so. I think more would overpower the meat. 2) doubled the lime juice as others have done 3) did not add garlic to the marinade but cooked the chicken with it (really good). 4) changed from oregano to basil. I think next time I will do cilantro to see how that flavors it. I think the receipe tasted exactly how I expected it. Those that have given it bad reviews maybe were expecting a different taste.
absolutely delicious. to get that full lime taco flavor, next time I will use white corn tortilla's and eliminate the lettuce and tomatoes, and add cilatro. This is awesome and will definitely be a regular meal in our home.
