Lime Chicken Tacos 
When in college, I would frequently make chicken tacos.  They’re one of my favorite foods, easy to make, and are great leftovers.  However, I would make the basic tacos by shredding chicken breasts and mixing in store-bought taco mix.  When I came across this recipe, I knew I had to add it to my dinner menu.  After making them, I know I will make these over and over and are definitely a step up from my past college cuisine.  After finishing them, I realized the only thing that would make this meal better is a fresh margarita and am noting it for next time.
What you’ll need:
1 ½ lbs boneless skinless chicken breasts (cut into small pieces)
1/8 cup red wine vinegar
½ – 1 lime (juiced)
1 teaspoon sugar
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon ground black pepper½ onion (chopped)
2 garlic cloves (minced)
1 teaspoon dried oregano
10 (6 inch) flour tortillas
Pico de gallo
Lettuce
Mexican blend cheese
Sour cream, guacamole

What to do:1. Add a little oil to the pan and sauté chicken pieces in the pan for 20 minutes over medium-high heat. 2. Add vinegar, lime juice, sugar, salt, pepper, green onions, garlic and oregano. Simmer for another 10 minutes.
3. Warm tortillas and add chicken mixture to each one evenly. Top with cheese, pico de gallo, lettuce, and other condiments.
