Lime Chicken Soft Tacos

These tacos taste so fresh and limey! It is a nice change to the usual crunchy beef tacos I make!

1 1/2 lbs. skinless, boneless chicken breast meat-cubed
1/8 cup red wine vinegar
1 lime, juiced
1 teaspoon white sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
2 green onions, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 t. dried oregano
10 (6") flour tortillas
1 tomato, diced
1/4 cup shredded lettuce
1/4 cup shredded monterey jack cheese
1/4 cup salsa
1/4 cup sour cream

1. Saute chicken in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat for about until almost cooked. Add vinegar, lime juice, sugar, salt, pepper, green onions, garlic and oregano. Simmer for a couple more minutes until most of the sauce has been absorbed.
2. Heat a non-stick skillet over medium heat and warm each side of tortillas. (Or just warm them up for about 45 seconds in the microwave.) Serve lime chicken mixture in warm tortillas topped with tomatoes, lettuce, cheese, salsa and sour cream.
