Chipotle Chicken with Avocado Cream Sauce

Ingredients: 

  • 1 package Crescent Foods Chicken Tenders 
  • 2 tablespoons ground Chipotle  
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder 
  • ½ teaspoon ground cumin 
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cayenne  
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt 
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice  
  • 2 tablespoons grape seed oil, separated  

For the Avocado Cream Sauce: 

  • ½ ripe avocado 
  • 2 tablespoons fresh cilantro 
  • ¼ cup fresh lime juice 
  • 2 tablespoons water 
  • 1 clove garlic 
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt 
  • ½ tablespoon fresh jalapeno 

For the bowl: 

  • 2 cups cooked brown rice 
  • ½ cup chopped tomatoes 
  • 1 cup black beans 
  • ½ cup corn kernels  
  • Sliced jalapenos, cilantro leaves, microgreens for garnish 

Method:  

  • In a large bowl, combine Crescent Foods Chicken tenders, ground chipotle, ground garlic powder, ground cumin, ground cayenne, salt, lime juice, and 1 tablespoon grape seed oil. Toss until chicken tenders are well coated in seasoning.  
  • Allow Crescent Foods Chicken tenders to marinate in the refrigerator for a minimum of 30 minutes.  
  • Heat remaining 1 tablespoon of grape seed oil in a skillet on medium heat. Place chicken tenders in the skillet and cook 3-4 minutes on each side.  
  • To make your avocado sauce, place avocado, cilantro, lime juice, garlic, jalapeno, water and salt in a blender and blend until smooth. You may wish to add more water for a thinner sauce.  
  • Assemble your bowl by laying chicken atop the rice, beans, corn, tomatoes. Drizzle with avocado cream sauce. 

Chipotles are smoked dried jalapenos. I purchased the chipotles whole, and used a coffee grinder to make the ground chipotle powder. The chipotle powder gives a beautiful red color to the chicken!
