#RivCooks: Honey Soy Avocado Chicken Tacos

I had a serious craving for some sticky (honey) wings from BBQs and quite the hankering for tacos, at the same time. That's how this concoction happened. It was incredible. 

I know you'll want to make these tonight, so here's what you're going to need: 

* 4 chicken breasts, sliced, tender size
* 1/2 cup sweet soy sauce,
* 1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger
* 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro leaves
* 2 cloves garlic, minced
* 1/2 lemon, juiced
* salt and pepper, to taste
* 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
* 2 tablespoons butter (melted)
* 1/2 cup honey

For the sauce, you'll need to combine all ingredients together (except for the chicken). Be sure to whip thoroughly,  until brown and smooth. 

Add your chicken, with  two tablespoons of olive oil, to a skillet and sauté on both sides, on medium heat, for ten minutes each. Add sauce (desired amount), to the chicken and stir on low heat, for an additional ten minutes. Be sure to cut chicken to make sure it's cooked all the way through. 

You'll need to cut a desirable amount of avocado and green onion to accompany your chicken. I also like to use corn tortillas, that I've slightly browned on a stove, as well. Garnish with a bit of lettuce & enjoy! 

If you try this recipe, let me know how it turns out!
