Chicken and Guacamole Tacos

First of all, I just need to say that there was not nearly as much sour cream on those tacos as it appears.  At least that's what I'm going to tell myself as it does look like a bit much.  These tacos were awesome. I had been craving tacos like crazy so they totally hit the spot! This recipe is adapted from Amy's Cooking Adventures.

2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 lb boneless skinless chicken breasts
1/4 cup onion (minced)
2 cloves garlic (minced)
1 (8oz) can tomato sauce
1/4 cup chicken broth
1 tbsp lime juice
1 tsp white vinegar
1/4 tsp honey
2 tsp chili powder
1/2 tsp cumin
1 cup guacamole (homemade or store bought)
crunchy or soft tortillas

Heat olive oil over medium heat in a skillet and place the chicken in the skillet.  Add in the onion and cook for several minutes, flip to the opposite side and continue to cook the chicken.  Whisk together the tomoato sauce, chicken broth, lime juice, white vinegar, honey, chili powder and cumin.   Add the garlic to the chicken and cook for 30 seconds.  Pour the sauce over the chicken and lower the heat, cover and cook for 10 minutes.  Once the chicken is cooked through, shred the chicken and cook for 10 more minutes on low heat while covered.  Remove from heat and build your tacos with guacamole and other toppings as desired.
