Citrus and Herb Marinated Chicken Tacos

Recipe by breezee1984

The marinade for this chicken is just delicious: citrusy, herby, and fresh tasting!

These are absolutely yummy! What a great summer dinner. I used parsley instead of the cilantro b/c DH doesn't like cilantro. I also used a lot less garlic (one HUGE clove). I served this as a sort of build-your-own taco with tomatoes, lettuce, onions and avacado. Sour cream and salsa too. The few leftovers I have, I'm going to eat for lunch today as a taco salad. YUM! Thanks for sharing. :)
