For Serving

  • fresh lime juice

  • Combine the chicken, 1 tablespoon of oil, and 2 tablespoons of taco seasoning in a mixing bowl. Toss well to thoroughly coat.
  • In a large non-stick skillet, heat the remaining oil over medium heat. Add the chicken and cook, while stirring constantly, for about 3-4 minutes. Transfer the cooked chicken to a plate next to the stove.
