Spice Rubbed Chicken with Avocado Salsa
My daughter came home from work today and decided to cook dinner on her own.
Sounds like a winner to me!
So the both of us start looking for ingredients in the fridge, pantry and freezer.
It's going to be chicken because that's all we have.
She gets on the computer and starts to look for a recipe idea that is different.
And something that has ingredients that we all ready have.
No one in my house really likes to go on a grocery run at the last minute.
So she finds an idea she'll try.
It's from Martha Stewart.
The only things we don't have are cayenne pepper and red onion.
Hence the name change to Spice.
No problem.
So far it is looking good and the smell is awesome!
At this time I'm in the living room with my crochet.
Wow! I like this.
You know this means I will have to wash up.
The chicken is cooking in olive oil on a medium heat.
So here it is, Carmen's creation!
I am so proud of her!
doesn't this look amazing!
1 tsp coarse salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
(we used Chicken Rub by Szegeo and 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes)
3 boneless chicken breast
2 Tbs olive oil
1 medium red onion
(we used a yellow onion)
2 Tbs fresh lime juice
1 avocado cut into chunks
In a small bowl, combine salt, pepper and spices together and rub all over the chicken.
In another bowl combine onion and lime juice and set aside. Just before serving add avocado chunks into mixture.
Over med heat cook chicken in oil until browned on both sides, 8 to 10 min per side. Make sure the heat isn't to high.
Serve chicken topped with salsa.
You should try this.
When she showed me the recipe I didn't think it looked that good.
Boy was I wrong!
Thanks for stopping by.
Enjoy your day.

Mmm! That does look good. I love avocado and lime so this is certain to make me happy! Isn't it great to have someone cook for you? It pretty much never happens here..but sometimes my hubster will cook something and I just love it when that happens!

Bonnie, when the boys get older they will cook for you. I waited a long time for my kids to cook for me.

Kim said...

Looks great. Avocado automatically makes everything awesome... And it was made for you, what more could you ask for!?

I'll be over for supper tonight. .surely no one will mind if I take a little trip!! Looks delish! My boys are shaping up to be good cooks. However, 2 weeks ago my 15 year old's job was to make supper while I was at work. .a BBQ macaroni recipe. Unfortunately, he didn't cook the macaroni before putting it into the burger and sauce. I'm pretty sure he'll never live that down!!

Kim, thanks for stopping by. Avocado is a new favorite for my kids.

Melanie, sure come on over! Your boys are such fine young men. I love that they cook at such a young age.
