From Family Fun magazine, May 2006. This was a big hit with the entire family. The chicken was juicy and very flavorful.
1/2 cup fresh lime juice (about 3-4 limes) (I used the ReaLime in the plastic bottle shaped like a lime)
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/4 vegetable oil (plus more for brushing the tortillas)
1 T. honey2 tsp. minced garlic
1 1/2 tsp. chili powder
6 boneless, skinless chicken thighs, about 4 oz. each (I used thighs and breasts)
8 small corn tortillas, 5-6 in. in diameter
1 1/2 cups shredded Monterey Jack (I used cheddar)
1 1/2 cups shredded lettuce
salsa, guacamole, sour cream, cilantro, green onions (we used salsa and sour cream)
1. Place the chicken in a gallon ziplock bag and add all the marinade ingredients. Press the air out of the bag and seal it. Turn the bag to thoroughly coat the chicken, place it in a bowl, and refrigerate it for at least 4 hours (preferably overnight), turning the bag occasionally. Remove the meat from the refrigerator 20 minutes before you want to start grilling.
2. Prepare a charcoal fire of set a gas grill to medium-high, close the lid, and heat until hot--about 10 to 15 minutes.3. Remove the thighs from the bag and discard the marinade. Grill the chicken until it's no longer pink inside, about 4 to 5 minutes per side on a gas grill. Transfer the chicken to a cutting board and let it rest for about 5 minutes before cutting it into 1/2-inch strips.
4. Lightly brush both sides of the tortillas with vegetable oil. Grill them on each side until they turn slightly brown, about 1 minute on a gas grill. Before removing the tortillas from the grill, sprinkle each one with 1 tablespoon of cheese. (I used my electric skillet for this step.)
5. To serve, layer the tortillas with shredded lettuce, the chicken strips, the remaining cheese, and any additional toppings.
