Lovely Cooking: Lime Chicken Soft Tacos

Anyone who knows me well, knows how much I despise chicken (unless battered and fried). But in an effort to eat healthier dinners, my J has stressed the importance of our consuming more chicken dishes...which unfortunately does not include fried chicken.

So I went online and found a recipe for Lime Chicken Soft Tacos on It is fast and easy to make, and surprisingly very yummy. This recipe also has 1,202 reviews with a 4.5 out of 5 star rating.

Now, I did make a few substitutions which I think made the recipe a bit different:

  1. Instead of throwing green onions into the mixture while cooking, I opted to top the tacos with fresh cilantro before eating

  2. I omitted the oregano

  3. We did not top the taco with lettuce

  4. I used queso fresco instead of monterey jack cheese

  5. I diced an avocado to include as a taco topping

  6. We squeezed a bit of fresh lime juice on the tacos instead of using salsa

Yes, I realize that I made a lot of changes. But it got me to eat chicken and I definitely plan to make it again and again.


  1. looks delish! :)

    who doesn't like tomatoes?.... hehe.

  2. AHHAHAHAHAHAHHAHA you made SO MANY alterations, it seems like just the chicken and soft taco part stayed the same.

    However, both versions sound DELISH! I will definitely try it. Thanks for the recipe!!!!! Honestly that picture is making me hungry! it looks so fresh!

  3. agreed. it looks super fresh and healthy!
