Happy Cinco de Mayo - Lime Chicken Soft Tacos

Happy Cinco de Mayo!
If you're looking for a Mexican dish that's a little different, here's one we had last night - Lime Chicken Soft Tacos. We have picky eaters, and not a scrap was left! This is from Week 17 of Hassle Free Dinners. The amounts in parenthesis are for 2, 4, and 6 servings.

Boneless, skinless chicken (1/2, 1, 1 1/2 lb.)
Red wine vinegar (2, 4, 6 t.)
Lime juice (1, 2, 3 t.)
Sugar (1/3, 2/3, 1 t.)
Salt (1/6, 1/3, 1/2 t.)
Pepper (1/6, 1/3, 1/2 t.)
Green onions (1/2, 1, 1 1/2)
Minced garlic (1, 2, 3 t.)
Dried oregano (1/3, 2/3, 1 t.)

Flour tortillas
Tomato (1/3, 2/3, 1)
Lettuce (1/2, 1, 1 1/2 c.)
Monterey Jack cheese (2, 4, 6 oz.)
Salsa to taste

Slice chicken into thin strips and place in a zip lock bag.
Mix vinegar, lime juice, sugar, salt, pepper, green onion, garlic and oregano. Add to chicken. Marinate while you get the rest of the meal together.

Meanwhile, slice green onions. Dice tomatoes. Shred lettuce and cheese.

Simmer chicken over medium heat until no longer pink - just a few minutes.

Microwave tortillas.

We had a fruit plate to complete the meal - mango, green grapes, and cutie tangerines.
