I had this in an Equadoran restaurant and loved it so much. It tastes so fresh, and has little fat. Delicious for a party food. I had this in an Equadoran restaurant and loved it so much. It tastes so fresh, and has little fat. Delicious for a party food.
Number of Servings: 1


    Chicken breast, one per person

    Soft Corn Tortilla, one per person

    Lettuce or Mixed Green salad, one cup per person

    Juice of two Limes

    Sweet Red Onion, 3 tbsp (to taste)

    One medium tomato (diced)

    Fresh Cilantro, 3 tbsp (to taste)

    Garlic powder, 1tsp


Makes one taco. May easily be expanded by cooking one chicken breast per person, and allowing one soft corn tortilla for each.

Chop Onion and dice tomato, sprinkle with a little garlic powder and Chili powder. Set aside.

Cut chicken breast into strips or pieces using kitchen shears. Squeeze out the juice of one lime into a frying pan. Heat to Medium, add chicken. Cook for approximately 10 minutes, or until chicken is done through. Add water to lime juice if the pan is starting to dry. While chicken is cooking, sprinkle it with Chili powder.

Heat soft corn tortilla in oven, careful not to let it dry out. I do not recommend microwaving because the corn can become soggy, then over-dry. If cooking for a party, you can heat a stack of them in the oven at once, taking them out when the dish is ready to serve.

Once chicken is done and the tortillas are heated, assemble taco. Snip fresh cilantro over the top. Always put cilantro on the taco last so it doesn't wilt. Squeeze fresh lime over the top.

Other serving suggestions:

If you're having a party, its fun to put all of the ingredients out on a platter and allow your guests to make their own tacos. Place the chicken in a bowl at the center, and surround with lots of fresh veggies and lettuce. You could even marinade the chicken in lime and chili powder ahead of time and grill it outside for a nice cookout. Al
