Tonight I revisited one yummy chicken dish I made several months ago – Chicken Lime Salad with Avocado! Yummy!

I combine delicious fresh vegetables and herbs, chilled chicken, and the smooth creaminess of the avocado, with the crunch of tortilla chips. Only this time I made some slight adjustments. 😉

I combined sour cream, mayonnaise and finely grated lime rind, and grated gingerroot in a small bowl. I then stirred in pre-cooked chicken breast cut into small chunks and chilled. I then added grated carrot, chopped cucumber, and salt and pepper. I let it chill a bit longer in the refrigerator, while I chopped fresh cilantro, fresh basil leaves, and fresh parsley. I then combined it altogether, including the chopped avocado in lime juice, and served it with some small tortilla chip flakes.

The final result… a delicious and fresh tasting meal perfect for a warm Summer evening. 🙂

Last night I created my newest pizza sensation: The Habaneran – Hot Peppers with Avocado, Cilantro, and Lime! Yum!

First, I of course took out one of my frozen pizza dough balls and let it defrost and rise. Once the dough was ready to be created into my pizza base… I stretched it out until I reached the desired size. Then the layers of flavour and toppings began….

I brushed my dough with my homemade Herbed Grill Oil, which consists of high quality extra virgin olive oil, minced garlic clove, dried oregano, dried thyme, and dried basil.

I then dusted my pizza with some shredded Parmesan, and sprinkled shredded mozzarella. I then dropped spoonfuls of my Chunky Tomato Basil Sauce, consisting of minced garlic cloves, finely chopped fresh basil leaves, chopped ripe tomatoes, a bit of tomato paste, sea salt, freshly ground pepper, a tiny bit of sugar. Finally, I sprinkled on a finely chopped habanero pepper. Then in the oven it went.. 😉

Once the pizza was cooked, I removed it from the oven and garnished it with thinly sliced avocado, and chopped fresh cilantro. I also squeezed lime juice over the whole pizza. So Delicious!!!! 😀

Last night I felt like experimenting with my chicken dishes the way I used to in the past. Last night’s experimentation was Chicken Lime Salad with Avocado! Yum! 🙂

To make this delicious salad I wanted to combine not only delicious fresh vegetables and herbs, chilled chicken, and the smooth creaminess of the avocado, with the crunch of tortilla chips.

I combined sour cream, mayonnaise and finely grated lime rind in a small bowl. I then stirred in pre-cooked chicken breast cut into small chunks and chilled. I then added grated carrot, chopped cucumber, chopped romaine lettuce, and salt and pepper. I let it chill a bit longer in the refrigerator, while I chopped fresh cilantro, fresh mint, fresh basil leaves, and fresh parsley. I then combined it altogether, including the chopped avocado in lime juice, and served it with some small tortilla chip flakes.
