Lemon Chicken with Guacamole Sauce

We had Cody & Carol over this week for dinner & a movie. I have been wanting to try this recipe for awhile and our little dinner party seemed to be the perfect time. The chicken was perfect. If you can, I definitely recommend marinating overnight. I added just a little Cilantro to the Avocado sauce and it fit in perfectly. Thanks to Janae for a great recipe.

Lemon Chicken with Guacamole Sauce  


juice of 2 lemons
2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
4 chicken breasts, about 7 oz each
1 large tomatoes, chopped
Salt and black pepper

For the Sauce:
1 ripe avocado
4 tbsp sour cream
3 tbsp fresh lemon juice
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 cup water

Combine the lemon juice, oil, garlic, 1/2 tsp salt and a little pepper in a bowl. Stir to mix.

Arrange the chicken breasts, in one layer, in a shallow dish. Pour over the lemon mixture and turn to coat evenly. Cover and leave to stand for at least 1 hr at room temperature, or chill overnight.
To make the sauce, halve the avocado, remove the stone and scrap the flesh into a food processor. Add the sour cream, lemon juice, and salt and process until smooth. Add the water and process just to blend. If necessary, add a little more water to thin the sauce. Transfer to a bowl, taste and adjust the seasoning if necessary. Set aside in a cool place.

Preheat the broiler or grill & add the chicken breasts. Cook for about 10 minutes or until it is no longer pink in the center.

Serve with a chicken breast, a dollop of avocado sauce, and some diced tomatoes.
