1 clove garlic, minced
2 teaspoons chili powder
Salt and pepper to taste
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
4 (10-inch) flour tortillas
2 cups shredded Monterey Jack cheese

1/4 cup finely diced red onion
1/4 cup finely chopped flat leaf parsley

1/2 cup sour cream

Cooking Directions:

  1. Combine lime juice, canola oil, garlic, chili powder and salt and pepper in large bowl. Whisk ingredients together.
  2. Cut chicken breasts into 1/2-inch pieces. Toss with oil mixture. Marinate mixture, refrigerated, for 2 to 4 hours.
