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.
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.
4 chicken breasts
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon chili powder
1 cup buttermilk
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
2 cloves of garlic
3 tablespoons minced cilantro
Juice of 1 lime
Zest of lime
In a blender, combine the olive oil, salt, chili powder, avocado, buttermilk, apple cider vinegar, cloves of garlic, cilantro, lime juice and lime zest. Cover and blend until smooth.
Pour marinade into a freezer bag and add chicken breast. Seal bag and turn to coat chicken.
Place in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours.
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)
