Paleo, Recipes, Whole30 Grilled Guacamole Lime Chicken and Shrimp July 28, 2018

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 summer and it is currently on repeat in my kitchen.

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.

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 you have yourself a beautiful and delicious summertime meal.

  1. Add all of the ingredients for the cilantro sauce to a food processor or blender and blend until combined. In a large zip-lock bag, add 4 chicken breast along with the cilantro marinade.

Add the rest of the ingredients and mix together with a fork until combined and creamy.
