Lime Chicken Tacos

I just tried out this recipe the other night,
and LOVED it!
This is a very light and refreshing taco full of really good flavor.
It was also super easy to make.
I used 6 inch Whole Wheat tortillas to make it a little bit more healthier.
This is a make again at our house for sure.
