Food: Dinner Tonight – Chili, Lime, Chicken and Avocado

Hating the fact, we’ve eaten out for the past couple of nights, because there is no ‘off-switch’ when a colorful oversized menu is shoved in your face by the waiter, who is rattling off the specials and then coming around a few times until order taken,  ‘insisting really’ but pretending not to – for us to order a beverage on happy hour or not.

So, this morning on my way out of the door, I announced that we would be dining in – the meal of course would be up to Keto-me.  Kind of like this…

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into bite size chunks
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 cup fresh lime juice
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced or grated
  • 1 tablespoon honey  [omit for my portion]
  • 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
