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
1 ripe avocado
4 tbsp sour cream
3 tbsp fresh lemon juice
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 cup water
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.
