Spicy Chicken Tacos

Recipe From: My Kitchen Cafe
I didn't take a picture because we don't eat pretty tacos. It is meat and tortillas...that's it. Blake really liked the flavor.

3 tablespoons butter
4 garlic cloves (minced)
2 tsp chipotle chilies in adobo sauce (chopped)
1/2 cup orange juice
1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
3/4 cup fresh cilantro (chopped)
4 chicken breasts
1 tsp yellow mustard
Salt and pepper
flour tortillas

Melt the butter in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add the garlic and chipotle chilies and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Stir in the orange juice, Worcestershire sauce and 1/2 cup chopped cilantro and bring the mixture to a boil. Add the chicken and simmer, covered, over medium-low heat for 12-13 minutes, flipping the chicken halfway through cooking. When the chicken is done cooking, transfer to a plate and tent with foil.

Increase the heat to medium-high and cook the mixture left in the skillet until the liquid is reduced to about 1/4 cup, about 5 minutes. Off the heat, whisk in the yellow mustard. Using 2 forks, shred the chicken into bite-sized pieces and return to the skillet. Add the remaining cilantro to the skillet and toss until well combined. Season with salt and pepper. Serve warm with tortillas topped with lettuce, cheese, tomato, sour cream and avocado.
