Easy recipe to make 10 tacos for all the family to enjoy



600g boneless, skinless chicken breast (cut into small cubes)

1 tsp sugar

1/2 lime juiced (about 1 tsp.)

2 tbsp red wine vinegar

2 cloves garlic (minced)

2 spring onions chopped

1/2 tsp. salt

1 tsp. chopped fresh coriander

1/2 tsp. ground black pepper

10 flour tortillas – street taco size (6 inch)

large handful shredded lettuce

1 tomato diced

60g salsa

120g grated Monterey Jack cheese


Using a medium-sized frying pan or skillet, add chicken and sauté over medium-high heat for about 15 minutes or until golden brown

Add in lime juice, sugar, red wine vinegar, minced garlic, coriander and spring onions.  Sprinkle with salt, and pepper while cooking to your tastes.

Reduce heat and allow to simmer until chicken has absorbed wet ingredients.  

Warm tortillas in a small frying pan or skillet flipping on each side or place in a warm oven for a few minutes.  

Each taco will use 1/10th of the chicken mixture.  Fill each tortilla with chicken and add in lettuce, tomatoes, cheese and top with salsa if desired.  

These are so flavourful you cannot even tell they are healthy!
