FABULOUS! I have to admit I was a little skeptical of this recipe because there are so few ingredients that go into seasoning the chicken. I expected it to be bland. Was I surprised! I wouldn't change a thing, and I'll definitely be making this again. The salsa is also very flavorful and refreshing. NOTE: There is lime juice listed in the ingredients, but not mentioned in the directions. The juice likely goes in the salsa, but I had omitted it at first since I was following the directions. It wasn't until halfway through my meal that I realized I hadn't used lime juice, then added it to the salsa. I have to say the salsa is good either way. I served the chicken over lime-cilantro rice. Yummy!
Yum, yum! I love cumin, so the chicken was good, though it would work better to pound the pieces to an even thickness. But, let me tell you about that salsa! It was delicious! I wondered about using cucumbers, I'd never thought about mixing them with avocado. Something about the crunch, added to the creamy avocado, with a bit of lime juice and salt--this was not just a salsa. It was a side! I could easily do this as a salad on lettuce for lunch, even without the chicken. This will be even better a bit later in the season, when cucumbers are sweeter and tomatoes are at their peak! Will definitely do again!
Mmmm good! I made 1 1/2 times the avocado salsa and use tenderloins instead of chicken breast since that's what I had in the fridge. We had this for diner with cilantro rice mixed with black beans.
This is so good. I did grill the chicken. We had them fajita style with flour tortilla. Pinto beans on the side. I was inspired by the lovely picture on the front page.
