CUMIN-DUSTED CHICKEN BREASTS WITH GUACAMOLE SAUCE
Adapted from Cooking Light
I’m always on the hunt for a good, easy chicken recipe since A doesn’t think a meal is complete without meat. He’s wrong, but I still try to fatten up his ever shrinking stomach (he’s lost 12 lbs since we got here!) with whatever I can find. This chicken is really simple to make and we both loved it. It’s both moist and flavorful.
1 ripe avocado, peeled and roughly mashed
1/2 red onion
Juice of 1 lime
1 teaspoon of salt
1 teaspoon of pepper
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
4 (6-ounce) skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
1. To prepare sauce, combine first 6 ingredients and set aside. As always, taste and see if anything should be added. Be creative, there is no right or wrong way to make guacamole.
2. Preheat oven to 400°.
3. To prepare chicken, combine sugar, 1 teaspoon cumin, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/2 teaspoon black pepper; sprinkle evenly over chicken.
4. Heat a large ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Add chicken; cook 3 minutes or until browned. Turn chicken over. Place pan in oven; bake at 400° for 10 minutes or until done. Serve chicken with sauce.

A better view.
This is the jam. They say it was written for Rihanna, but I think it’s pretty safe to say Rita sang it *much* better than Rihanna would have.
