Cilantro Lime Chicken Tacos With A Mango & Black Bean Salsa

Cilantro-Lime-Chicken-Tacos-With-A-Mango-&-Black-Bean-Salsa

What for a delicious dinner we had this evening!

I cooked the chicken with it’s marinade after having marinated it with the first 8 ingredients. In the meanwhile I begun to prepare the tortillas and the salsa.

I sliced the chicken breast for serving and served the cooked marinade as additional sauce. The sour cream had been replaced by Greek yogurt as I have this ingredient always on hand.

This was a delicious dinner and our unexpected guest loved it very much as well!
