A cilantro lime vinaigrette has two jobs in a weeknight taco recipe. First, it?s the marinade for the pan seared chicken filling. Then it turns sour cream into a special topping.

Ingredients

Directions

Sprinkle the chicken with salt and pepper in a large bowl. Then toss with 1/2 cup of the Mexican Style Cilantro Lime Vinaigrette. Marinate for 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, stir together the sour cream with the remaining 2 tablespoons vinaigrette. 

Heat the oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chicken along with the marinade and cook until slightly browned and cooked through, about 7 minutes per side. Transfer to a cutting board and chop. Season with salt.

Warm the tortillas as the label directs. Using 2 stacked tortillas per taco, fill with the chicken, top with the cilantro-lime sour cream and the toppings of your choice.
