Coriander Lime Chicken with Avocado Salsa

Coriander Lime Chicken with Avocado Salsa

 

I've made this twice in the last 2 weeks. It is just perfect, and the 5 minute marinade makes this possible even if you decide this is what you want to eat for dinner at 5 p.m. Cook the chicken any way you'd like. The author asks you to sear it in a skillet. I decided just to roast it on a sheet pan at 400 degrees for about 40 minutes. If my husband had been home, I would have asked him to pop it on the grill. Make this soon, before all the best summer tomatoes are gone. And if you need any of those...I am drowning in them over here. I served it on some brown rice next to a side of sauteed zucchini and it was perfection.

Chicken--

  • 2 tablespoons ground coriander
  • ¼ cup freshly squeezed lime juice
  • ¼ cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 2 lbs boneless skinless chicken breasts

Mix spices, lime juice, and oil together, and add to chicken breasts in a large Ziplock bag. Let it sit for 5 minutes (I think up to 30 would be fine without breaking down the chicken too much from the lime juice), then cook as you desire. Top with avocado salsa.

Avocado Salsa--

 Combine the following:

  • 1 cup chopped tomato (use whatever you have on hand--big tomatoes, cherry, grape, whatever)
  • 2 tablespoons minced yellow or red onion (I prefer red, if for no other reason than it is lovely looking)
  • 2 teaspoons lime juice (from a real lime, folks)
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 avocado, peeled and diced

I do what I do because I love it.  The greatest part of existing on this planet is the ability to work with other humans and see their joy come to life.  That's why I work in two different worlds.  

As a wedding planner, I am lucky enough to get to know couples as they go through an intense but really joyful journey. My goal is for you to focus on the marriage part, while I focus on the wedding part of.  Let me take some of the work of your hands and let you two enjoy your day, enjoy the people that will be celebrating with you, and be in the moment.

As a web developer and digital marketer, I get to see your heart and soul come to life on the interwebs.  We get to discuss your goals and your vision, and my hope is that I help that come to fruition. Basically, I am here to make dreams come true, and I could not think of a better way to exist.  

I currently live with my fiancé and attempt to bribe him daily into letting me get a puppy.  Lover of eggs and avocado toast, too many potted plants, a good Netflix binge, and swearing more than my parents would care to hear.

Let's dream together.
