The best Chicken Soft Tacos.....ever!

So y'all have probably heard about the Food Nanny, Liz Edmonds. She has lots of simple recipes, and everything she makes is delicious! She has a great idea of having a certain type of food on each night of the week. I need to practice that more. I'm excited to watch her new show, starting in February of 2010 on BYUTV.
So she made these on Good Things Utah one day. I have to tell you, they are the tastiest chicken soft tacos I've ever had! There are just a few simple natural ingredients. They're pretty healthy too! The butter is the only semi-bad thing. So here it is:

2 Tbsp. Butter or Margarine
2 Tbsp. Extra Virgin Olive Oil (although the recipe calls for Canola Oil for frying, I just use EVOO.)
2 lbs. boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into bite size pieces
1/2 of a small onion, chopped
2 to 3 garlic cloves, minced
2 vine-ripened tomatoes, chopped
1/2 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
Salt, Ground Black Pepper, Garlic Salt
Corn Tortillas

Heat the butter and oil in skillet over medium high heat. Add the chicken and onions and cook and stir until the onions are soft and the chicken is tender and no longer pink. Add the garlic and cook about 1 minute more.

Decrease the heat to low and stir in the tomato and cilantro. Add water or chicken broth if the mixture seems too dry. Season generously with salt, pepper, and garlic salt. Continue cooking about 2 more minutes. Serve w/ corn tortillas, and top with cheese, lettuce, sour cream, fresh spinach, fresh salsa, or whatever you'd like. Although I never need to top them with anything. They are always moist and delicious straight out of the pan. Enjoy!!
