Cilantro Lime Chicken Taco Salad

Cilantro Lime Chicken

Cilantro Lime Chicken

  • Romaine Lettuce
  • Tortilla chips
  • Cilantro
  • Limes (2)
  • Sour Cream
  • Shredded Cheddar Cheese
  • Tomato
  • Salsa (or try mine!)
  1. Combine about 1 cup of cilantro, juice of two limes, 1 tblsp of lime zest, 1 tsp of sour cream, 2 pinches of salt and a pinch of sugar in food processor or blender. Process until smooth.
  2. Pour marinade over chicken and let sit for 15-30 minutes.
Who knew RAW chicken could look this good?!

While that is marinading, begin making your salsa (or salad, if you are not feeling that motivated). To make the salsa, you’ll need:

  • 2 vine ripe tomatoes
  • 1 roma tomato
  • 3 cloves of garlic
  • 1 hot pepper like Jalapeno or Hobanero
  • 1 cup of white onion
  • 1 can of tomato paste
  • 2 pinches of salt
  • Small handful of cilantro
  • 1/4 tsp or more of cayenne pepper
  • A squeeze of lime juice

This is enough salsa to feed a party, or the entire Osmond family.

"...my salsa makes all the pretty girls dance..."

"...my salsa makes all the pretty girls dance..."

  1. Combine ingredients on pulse in food processor until to your liking. I like my salsa more watery than chunky, so I let it go a little longer than a minute. If you like chunky, a couple pulses should be fine.
  2. Let it sit in the fridge for an hour if you can, it’ll get better the longer it sits!
  3. Cut up tomato and tear the lettuce, DON’T cut! Cutting will make the lettuce turn brown faster, and no one likes to eat brown lettuce. Remember you eat with your eyes FIRST!
  4. Crush half a ziplock bag of tortilla chips and add to salad.
  5. Throw chicken on the grill for 5 minutes on each side, basting the chicken while it cooks.
  6. Serve separate or combined, and enjoy. Feel free to add other delicious taco toppings like avocado,onions, chopped jalapenos, hot sauce or sour cream.

    Micro “machine”— Leading the Way!!!

    Much like the rantings of John Moschitta, Jr. about the speed and small size of planes, trains and automobiles,  The MicroPlane (featured below) is an incredible investment that grates, minces and literally pulverize whatever you put to it in a quick, ridiculous (and mini) fashion–except much less annoying. Besides small sizes and the name plane, the greatest thing they share in common is the effort needed to use them which is about as exhusting as moving a MicroMachine from one end of the table to another.

    Yes, ladies and gentleman: it helps you make your food better while being as lazy as you usually are. If that alone does not prove why its the perfect invention than allow me to give you even more reasons:

    • fresh Parmesan cheese
    • instant minced garlic
    • lemon zest (omg amazing when added to teas and meals)
    • lime zest (omg as amazing as lemon)
    • AND…it’s hand held so you can put it over the plate of food. You use only the amount that you need, which $ave$ money! Plus, no having to take out a large greater for a little bit of flavor. Really, how much lemon zest does a dish need?!

    I’d go on, but I fear I could go into a Billy Mays-like rant. Imagine what he could do…
