  • Sauté chicken in a medium skillet in a little oil for a few minutes until chicken becomes white all around.
  • Add green onion, taco seasoning, cilantro, and salt & pepper to chicken.
  • Add water and simmer (covered) for an extra 8-10 minutes or so until chicken is cooked through. If the water is cooking out too fast and chicken seems dry, just add a more water a little at a time.
  • Add lime to chicken just before serving.
  • Add chicken to tortillas and top with lettuce, tomato, cheese, avocado, cilantro, salsa, sour cream, or any other taco topping you like!
