First of all, Happy Birthday to my big sister! She turns 30 today!
Cinco de Mayo week continues with last night’s dish: Guacamole Chicken
This was very delicious! I served it with the Mexican Rice I had left.
2 ripe avocados, 1/2 red onion, 1 lime, 2 chilies, handful fresh chopped cilantro, fresh ground sea salt, fresh ground black pepper
Half lime, squeeze juice, zest and set aside. Cut avocado in half, discard seed, and scoop fruit from skin. Immediately add lime juice to avocado and mash together. Add all ingredients in processor and blend until smooth.
lettuce, guacamole, sour cream, fresh cilantro, chicken breasts, lemon juice, garlic powder, fresh ground sea salt, fresh ground black pepper
Marinate chicken in lemon juice, garlic, salt and pepper for a few hours. Grill (or bake, or cook) over medium heat until no longer pink inside and juices run clear. Place chicken breast on a bed of lettuce, cover with guacamole, top with sour cream and fresh chopped cilantro.
*You can also leave ingredients in small cubes for a chunkier guacamole. For this dish I prefer a smooth guacamole.
*Next time I’ll top with fresh diced tomatoes, I just happened to be out of them this time.
I hope you all had a wonderful Cinco de Mayo…
