Chicken Lime Tacos

I saw this recipe on the blog Favorite Family Recipes. They were easy and a great new taco flavor. Ella loved them so much she ate two whole tacos! I also think it would be good to marinade the chicken in the sauce and then grill it before cutting up and putting in the tacos.

1 1/2 lbs. chicken, cubed
1/4 c. red wine vinegar
juice of 1 lime
2 tsp. sugar
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. black pepper
4-5 green onions, chopped
4 cloves garlic, minced
4 Tbsp fresh cilantro (or to taste)
tortillas and toppings

Sauté chicken in a medium skillet in a little oil for a few minutes until chicken becomes white all around.
Combine vinegar, lime juice, sugar, salt, pepper, green onion, garlic and cilantro and add to chicken. (I mixed these together before starting chicken so it could mix together more)
Simmer for an extra 10-20 minutes until chicken is cooked through.
Add chicken to tortillas and top with lettuce, tomato, cheese, avocado, cilantro, salsa, etc.
