Lime Chicken Soft Tacos

I am going to have a few "Guest Foodie Bloggers" on in the next few weeks. First up, MY SISTER BRITTANY. She is one of those people who has immaculate taste in everything - furniture, home decor, food, clothing - everything you can think of! Her true calling is as a BAKER. Since I don't bake much, I'll have to beg her to submit a few of her go to dessert recipes soon.

This is a recipe my sister found on allrecipes.com recipe and picture submitted by Marissa Wright
Lime Chicken Soft 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
1 tomato, diced
*1/4 cup shredded lettuce
*1/4 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese
*1/4 cup salsa

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.
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.

*My sister served these up with slices of avocado, fresh cilantro and feta. Cotija cheese would also be delish on these! Thanks B!
**I'll make sure to post a picture of my own as soon as I can!
