OK guys. I find recipes on pinterest that look delicious, ALL THE TIME!!! Well this recipe is no exception. Holy cow it was delicious!!!
Now, if you follow me on Facebook you know I’m horrible about getting a recipe and following it. This is probably why my husband says no one meals ever tastes the same the second time I make it!! Let’s see if it’s this good next time.”
With that being said here is the recipe!
1 Cup brown rice
4 chicken beasts (Chopped)
3 or 4 limes (depending on size)
Tbls cilantro ( I used fresh, diced)
4-6 garlic cloves
1 tbls Coconut oil (the recipe I originally saw used olive)
1 tbls chili powder
1 tbls cumin
a couple turn of the salt and pepper grinders
Before I start anything I put the brown rice on because it takes 45 minutes. So do that, then…..
While chopping chicken, heat oil to high heat
I chopped my chicken up into chunks for a quicker cook.
Season chopped chicken
Drop into pan and brown all sides of the meat
While meat is browning zest a lime, juice them all. Chop cilantro ad garlic
Once meat is browned drop in the zest and chopped yumminess. Pour in most of you lemon juice. Id say keep about a tablespoon for the avocado sauce that is coming!! Lower heat to med/low cooking just to cook up the garlic and other flavors. Becareful not to burn the garlic. (It will be bitter!) Scraping all that delicious brown stuff from the bottom of the pan.
While that simmers up drop the insides of the avocado, half a clove of garlic, tsp of cilantro, and the tablespoon of lime juice into a blender (or whatever you use) and mix up!! Add about 2 tablespoons of almond milk to make it sauce-like. (so you can drizzle it over the chicken.)
Once the chicken and rice are ready I fill my yellow container (portion control from beachbody) and put it on my plate. Then I fill my red container with chicken and place on top of my rice. Then I drizzle about a tablespoon of the avocado sauce onto the chicken and rice. IT IS DELICIOUS!!!!
I also have a salad with this. Gotta make sure I get all my portion cups in!!! Don’t want to miss out on all the delicious food I get to eat on the 22 minute Hard Corps rations plan!!
