Festive Avocado Chicken

DSCN0357

It stinks when “new recipe” night is a bust, but worth it when it’s a redo, and tonight was a redo night! After Brian tasted it he tried to bribe me for my portion by telling me he would take me to McDonalds for my dinner; Becks ate over half an avocado and downed the tomatoes (two of his favorite foods! He had to be reminded to eat the chicken also; he ended up cleaning his plate though!) and Sadie Piper took maybe a bite and spit the tomato out. But I will now have to buy our avocados at Costco cause this will be one of the most requested meals around here.

It looks like a lot of work, but I did all the prep during nap time (chopped tomatoes and onion, pounded chicken, diced garlic) and it came together in 30 min. after that.

After I took a picture of my plate Becks wanted me to take one of his too. And you know what that means? Sadie Piper does too!

2 ripe, firm avocados, sliced

1 T lime or lemon juice

1 T olive oil

2 T butter

Boneless chicken breasts, tenderized with the mallet thing

salt and pepper

Flour for dusting

1/4 c white wine

4 T green onion, chopped

2 cloves garlic, minced

1/4 c milk

1 T Flour

2 Roma tomatoes, chopped

4 T sour cream

1/4 c cilantro, chopped

Peel, pit and slice avocados and sprinkle with lemon or lime juice. Heat oil and butter in pan. Sprinkle chicken on both sides with salt and pepper and then dip in flour and shake off excess. Cook until brown outside and cooked through. Remove chicken and put in oven (to keep warm at 350). Add white wine, onions and garlic to pan and cook 1 min. Mix milk with 1 T four and add to pan. Cook 3 min. Add more milk if it needs to be creamier. Add tomatoes and avocado to warm them and sour cream right at the end just to mix it in. Spoon sauce on chicken and top with cilantro!

    So where’s the beef? Show us the junk that went into this dish. I think the classy folks call it a recipe.
