Summertime Chicken Tacos


Ingredients: 1/3 cup olive oil, 1/4 cup lime juice, 4 minced garlic cloves, 1 tablespoon minced parsley, 1 teaspoon ground cumin, 1 teaspoon dried oregano, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1/4 teaspoon pepper, 1 1/4 lbs boneless skinless chicken breast halves, 6 (8 inch) flour tortillas or 6 taco shells, lettuce, tomato, shredded cheese

Directions: In a shallow glass container, combine first eight ingredients. Add chicken and turn to coat. Cover and refrigerate 8 hours, turning occasionally. Drain and discard marinade. Grill chicken, uncovered, over medium heat for 5-7 minutes on each side or until juices run clear. Cut into thin strips; serve in tortilla or taco shells with desired toppings.
Wine Recommendation: Vajra Moscato d’Asti 2010 ($20)

The sweetness of a Moscato d’Asti will help combat the heat and spices of the taco while the bubbles will work well with any onions or similar toppings included with the dish. Available online and in specialty stores.
