A great summery dish using beer marinade.
  • 1 12oz bottle of beer, I used Bud Light Lime
  • ½ of an onion, chopped
  • 4 cloves of garlic, crushed
  • 2 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 2 ripe tomatoes, chopped
  • 2 ripe avocados , cubed
  • 2 limes
  • A handful of cilantro
  • olive oil
  • Salt + pepper
  • Good quality tortilla chips
  1. In a large bowl, top your chicken breasts with the beer, onions, and garlic. Marinate covered and in the fridge for 4-8 hours.
  2. Once the chicken has finished marinating, rinse it with water and pat it dry on a paper towel. Heat up a large pan with a little bit of olive oil. Season both sides of the chicken with salt and pepper. Cook for about 7 minutes per side on a medium-high heat.
  3. While it is cooking, cube your avocados.
  4. Toss them with the tomatoes, lime juice, cilantro, and about 1 tsp of salt. Once the chicken is cooked, let it rest on a cutting board for a few minutes. Then chop it into chunks and add it to the vegetables. Mix everything together. Top each serving of salad with a large handful of crushed tortilla chips if you so choose.
  5. Of course, the only acceptable beverage to accompany this salad is an ice cold beer.
