Tequila Lime Chicken Tacos

This is adapted from Macaroni and Cheesecake. You could very easily leave out the Tequila if you wanted to, it just adds little flavor.

1-1 1/2 lbs. Chicken breasts, trimmed and cubed
1/3 Cup Red Wine Vinegar
The juice of 1 Lime
Zest of half a lime
1/2 ounce shot of Tequila (this can easily be omitted, but does add a nice flavor)
2 Teaspoons Sugar
1/2 Teaspoon Salt
1/2 Teaspoon Pepper
1/2 Teaspoon Chili Powder
1/4 Teaspoon Cumin
Pinch of Paprika
1/4 Onion, diced
2 Garlic cloves, diced

Cut the chicken, and set aside. In a large bowl combine remaining ingredients, add the chicken and toss to coat. Cover and marinate in the fridge for up to 2 hours (or just cook immediately). Spray a medium sized skillet with cooking spray, and saute chicken over medium heat about 6-8 minutes or until fully cooked. Serving options would be as tacos, either soft shell or hard with your choice of toppings, or as a quesadilla. I think this is also be good on a nice salad.

This chicken is DELICIOUS!!! I can't say how much we enjoyed it enough. My 2 year old devoured his in the form of a quesadilla, and my hubby and I quite enjoyed our tacos, and I had the leftovers on a salad today and loved it! I highly recommend you try this chicken the next time you want Mexican and maybe something a little out of the ordinary. 4.5 Stars
