Today I decided to get a jump on dinner so I could have a little down time after I picked up the kids after school. I created a simple marinade with some of my favorite ingredients in the fridge. Lime and Cilantro. It turned out perfectly, and like many of the dishes I create it is versatile and can be eaten in a rice bowl, burrito bowl or even sliced and served as fajitas. I hope you enjoy. Ingredients 4 chicken breasts 3 tablespoons olive oil 1 tablespoon chili powder 1 avocado 1 cup buttermilk 1 tablespoon apple cider 2 cloves of garlic 3 tablespoons minced cilantro of 1 lime Zest of lime Directions Marinade In a blender, combine the olive oil, salt, chili powder, avocado, buttermilk, apple cider vinegar, cloves of garlic, cilantro, lime juice and lime zest.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Drain chicken and discard marinade. Place chicken on a shallow baking sheet. Bake for 20-30 minutes or until chicken is done (175 degrees F internal temperature)
