Have saved the recipe link on my PC at home … but now on my netbook at mums and I want to write the review on this fantastic little dish I couldn’t for me life remember who of my blogging sisters that had provided it. Had to look through everyone that post recipes and after 45 min did I find it with “The Scrumptious Pumpkin” or “My Little Chef”, as I call her … Jen are a very pretty young woman with the cutest puppy, Calvin – both so adorable.
This recipe talked to me straight away – because of its ingredients and the look. Love guacamole – and my favorite sandwich of all … is a newly toasted bagel with guacamole, red onion and grilled crispy bacon. Only the thought of it make me drool. Don’t do it often enough. Jen call this dish “Guacamole Chicken Lettuce Wraps”
Last Saturday(a week ago) I decided to try this out for my sunshine dinner on the balcony, but by the time my salad was done no sun – weather is weather!
I did some adjustment to the recipe – used lime instead of lemon – and I served the dish as a salad. Supermarket had no romaine lettuce, but they had nice small crisp iceberg head, that wasn’t compact, they weight nearly nothing and where only SEK9.80/$1.47/€1.20/£0.94 per kilo. Not found of iceberg otherwise because it’s compact like cabbage and no crispiness what so every. I always tear my lettuce by hand – I never use a knife to cut any lettuce, so “normal” iceberg isn’t that great in my book and most of the time it taste “nada” Those small heads I bought was delicious.
Otherwise I followed the recipe – instead of grilling the chicken breast – I seasoned it and put it under over to cook in the oven, I used a frozen chicken breast – and I find that it comes out in the best moist way if cooking like that. After I sliced the chicken I grilled the slices very quickly, just to give it a nice color. In the salad I had plum tomatoes and finely sliced red onion. As dressing I took from what I had in the fridge – something I just mixed together ages ago. Couldn’t say what is in it, but olive oil, balsamic vinegar, water and sugar I’m sure about. Sliced the chicken breast and put it on the salad after the dressing – and topped with the guacamole and scattered the freshly grilled diced bacon as the finale touch.
Never used cumin in guacamole before and I really like that little edge to it. So this will happen again before the summer is over, with our without sunshine.
Jen, mi más sincero agradecimiento para una receta divertida …
“The avocado is a food without rival among the fruits,
the veritable fruit of paradise “
