Juicy Grilled Guacamole Chicken and Shrimp

July 28, 2018 | Author: Ashley McCrary

Wouldn’t you agree that guacamole makes everything taste better? I am such a fan of topping it on literally everything, especially this juicy and tender cilantro lime chicken breast. You know what’s even better? Topping the with guacamole with citrus grilled shrimp. This dish screams spring and summer and it is currently on repeat in my kitchen. This yummy guacamole chicken is Whole30, Paleo, Keto and gluten free. 

Guacamole Chicken and Shrimp

I love figuring out new and creative ways to cook chicken. It is such a great and cheap protein option to have on your weekly menu, but it can get boring real quick if you aren’t creating it in new ways. Marinating chicken is a great way to add flavor. I love pairing chicken with cilantro and lime, so I created this new cilantro lime marinade that is absolutely delicious. I will mix up my marinade the night before and throw in a chicken breasts and allow to marinate overnight. Once ready to cook, I will simply remove the chicken and throw on the grill.

Like I mentioned earlier, who doesn’t love guacamole? I will mix some up and slather over the top of my grilled cilantro lime chicken breast and top with juicy citrus grilled shrimp. Not only is this a great evening meal, but it can also serve as tasty leftovers. I usually ALWAYS marinate and cook enough chicken breasts that will serve as a couple of lunches throughout the week. I will recreate how I eat then chicken during the week so it doesn’t get repetitive. I love chopping it up and adding to a beautiful green salad or even add to a cauliflower veggie power bowl. 

Guacamole Chicken and Shrimp

Sometimes healthy can get boring, but this dish not only satisfies, but it is also Whole30, Paleo and Keto friendly. Mix up a nice side salad with all the veggies from the garden and serve with this tasty guacamole chicken and you have yourself a beautiful and delicious summertime meal.

What is Tajin seasoning, where can I buy it and is it Whole30 compliant?

Yes! Tajin has very few ingredients including, chili peppers, salt, dehydrated lime juice, and silicon dioxide (used for anti-caking and is compliant). This is a great seasoning to add flavor to fruit, protein and veggies.

Can I store this guacamole chicken in the fridge overnight?

Putting the guacamole chicken in the fridge like the picture shows will not store well. I would suggest storing the chicken breast separate and making a new batch of guacamole. If you store it on top of the chicken it is likely to turn brown and have a bitter taste.

Do I have to marinate my chicken breast overnight for best results?

For best results I always recommend marinating the chicken breast the night before cooking. I find that they are way more juicy when they have marinated overnight. The cilantro lime marinade also gives the chicken amazing flavor also. I think it would still work without marinating if you are in a hurry, but I do recommend for the best taste.

Let the chicken marinate in the refrigerator overnight for best taste. Get the grill ready by spraying with compliant cooking spray. Turn on to 400°F.

(AD) With the back-to-school season right around the corner, life can get pretty busy. I'm here to help with a quick and easy lunchbox idea featuring @StarKistCharlie Hot Buffalo Style Tuna Creation Pouch. If you are not a fan of spicy, don't fear, these little pouches come in 23+ varieties and you can find them in the tuna aisle in the grocery store or online. Most of the pouches have 10g+ lean protein per single-serve pouch and 110 calories or less. I love serving these with my favorite fruits and veggies to make them a complete lunch or snack. These pouches are also great for a post-workout protein-filled snack. Just tear it open and eat straight from the pouch. #EverydayGoals

Every year I let the girls pick out a theme for their birthday cakes and I try to make it magical. This year Eloise wanted a chocolate cake with watercolor buttercream along with pink and teal macarons. It turned out better than I imagined and Eloise absolutely love it!!!

🧁For the buttercream, I used my recipe that is located on my site. You can also find it in my profile

🍰As for the cake, I  used my box cake mix hack. This is seriously my favorite way to make a cake because it tastes straight from the bakery. See the hack below

✨Follow the box cake mix instructions but with these changes 
Tip 1 Add one more egg (or add 2 if you want it to be very rich)
Tip 2 Use melted butter instead of oil and double the amount
Tip 3 Use milk instead of water
Tip 4 if using for cupcakes fill 3/4 of cupcake liners with the mix.
✨Bake according to the box and remove it two minutes early and let them sit for a couple of minutes in the tin. ✨Remove and allow them to cool

🍓I used Bonne Maman Strawberry Jam for the middle
