Sweet Cilantro and Lime Chicken Soft Tacos

Updated on January 17, 2013

Sweet Cilantro Chicken Tacos

These are chicken tacos that are easy to make with in 30 minutes. A great recipe to make homemade flavorful tacos that you can not accomplish with the old pack of seasonings. Infused with sweet orange and tart lime flavor. The acidity gives the chicken a sweet, yet savory twist to a family favorite.


1 lb. boneless skinless chicken breast. Cut into inch cubes.

1 cup orange juice

2 tablespoons lime juice

2 tablespoons chopped fine cilantro

1 teaspoon chili powder

1 teaspoon cumin

1 teaspoon garlic powder

1 teaspoon salt

1/4 cup finely chopped onion

1 tomatoe cored and eighthed.

1/4 cup finely chopped jalepeno-if desiring a little heat with your sweet-

On the side

Flour or corn tortillas

Diced Tomatoes

Sour cream

Chopped iceberg lettuce

Shredded cheddar cheese

Pico De Gallo


Mix all ingredients and put in a heated large skillet on medium. Cook untill all liquid is cooked out. (Cooking on any higher than 4-5 it will harden the meat.) Turn oven on 350 and set tortillas directly on rack and let sit for 30-45 seconds, until tortillas are pliable. Hard tacos put on a baking sheet for 4-5 minutes in heated oven. Enjoy with all your favorite fixings. Taste great with corn bean salsa or pico de gallo.
