  1. For the Mojo marinade: blend all ingredients in a food processor. Lay the chicken in a large baking dish and pour the mojo marinade over it. Wrap tightly in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1-2 hours
  2. For the Cilantro Cream: blend all ingredients in a food processor and set aside in fridge.
  3. Preheat an outdoor grill or a ridged grill pan over medium-high flame. Brush the grates with a little oil to prevent the meat from sticking. Pull the chicken out of the mojo marinade and season the on both sides with salt and pepper. Grill (or broil) the chicken for 10 minutes per side, turning once, until well done. Shred or chop chicken in to small pieces
  4. Warm the tortillas for 30 seconds on each side in a dry skillet or on the grill, until soft.
