  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro leaves
  • 1 cup fresh oranges juice
  • 1/3 cup fresh limes juice
  • 2 tablespoons white vinegar
  • 2 cloves finely chopped garlic
  • 1 minced jalapeño
  • salt to taste
  • pepper to taste
  • 1 1/2 pound boneless and skinless chicken cut into strips
  • 8 crisp taco shells or soft tortillas
  • 1 cup shredded Arla Dofino® Havarti with Jalapeño Chunk
  • 1 cup shredded lettuce
  • 1/2 cup chopped tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup diced avocados

Instructions

Prepare the marinade: Whisk olive oil, cilantro, orange juice, lime juice and vinegar together. Stir in garlic, jalapeño, salt and pepper. Reserve ¼ of the marinade and pour the rest into a glass baking dish. Add the chicken and refrigerate for at least 1 hour or up to 6 hours. Remove the chicken from marinade and sauté in a medium-hot skillet until thoroughly cooked, about 7½ minutes per side. Pull the chicken meat into bite size pieces. Layer taco shell with chicken, shredded Arla® Dofino® Havarti cheese, lettuce, tomato and avocado. Drizzle reserved marinade over each taco and serve.
