Lime Chicken Soft Tacos

Who wants another boring chicken breast again? Not me! I had some chicken in the freezer and with no ideas for dinner, I searched and found this recipe on Recipezaar.com. The reviews were good, what the heck?! I would give this one a shot.

I am glad I tried this...the only change I would make next time would be to decrease the oregano just a touch...but I'm not a big oregano fan anyway. The flavors were very good, the chicken was moist and extremely flavorful! We'll be having these again!
