    Shelby Jo's Note:

    From Quick Cooking Magazine. Prep time does not include marinating time. Try these tempting tacos when you're looking for a change of pace from regular tacos. A mild zing from the lime juice in the marinade for the chicken comes through after grilling. I like to serve them with salsa, cheese, lettuce and tomatoes. -Susan Scott, Asheville, North Carolina

      I've been looking for a marinade that incorporated what I usually have at home. This one is it! Marinade was really good! I also used fresh cilantro instead of parsley and added cumin seeds instead of ground. Thank you for sharing, I definitely will be making this again.

      This is really a marinade recipe, and it's good! garlic, lime, and herbs shine through into the finished taco, which we served on flour Gorditas. Although this is billed as "summertime" fare and for outdoor grilling, we used the broiler in January with great results. Made for Market Tag, Jan 09.
