Lime Chicken Tacos

I went back to my home in Chicago for 4th of July weekend and it was perfect! Beautiful weather, friends, family, my dog.. nothing better. After a hot day by the pool, I made this dish for my family. It was easy to make and delicious!
Sorry for the poor picture quality..

4 split chicken breasts
4 cloves of fresh garlic, chopped
1/4 cup fresh squeezed lime juice
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
2 teaspoons agave
A large pinch of cumin
Fresh ground pepper

For the toppings:
10 corn tortillas
2 limes cut into wedges
1 avocado
2 cups shredded lettuce
1 cup cherry tomatoes
1 cup cheddar cheese

Combine garlic, lime juice, olive oil, agave, cumin, and pepper in a bowl and whisk together. Pour over and under chicken and marinate for at least 1 hour. (over night would be better)

Preheat grill on medium high heat and grill chicken until done.

Assemble the toppings.

Place chicken on cutting board and slice thin.

Have everyone assemble their own tacos and dig in!
