Food: Dinner Tonight – Chipotle, Lime Chicken and Fries

The weather has finally turned for the better in the city – with warm days and SUNSHINE throughout the city and not just downtown. I love this time of the year, when the mornings are crispy cold-ish and the days although shorter are sunny and hot.

The only challenge is while other parts of the world are turning to comfort food, or soups to wards off the colder temperatures, we in the city are aiming to cool down by eating all things summer. So I am naturally pretty conscious on how best to proceed with my weekly meal plan, and I think this one will do just fine to half-Keto for me and the original recipe for the family.

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 pound boneless chicken breasts, cut into strips
  • 4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 chipotle peppers in adobo, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon honey (cut out for hardcore Keto)
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 2 limes
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced or grated
  • kosher salt and pepper
  • 2 sweet potatoes, cut into matchsticks  (I can cut this portion out for Keto, but I may just cheat today) 
  • 2 avocados, lightly mashed
  • 3 heads romaine lettuce chopped
  • 1 mango, diced  (Cut out for hardcore Keto)
  • 8 ounces feta, crumbled

JALAPEÑO VINAIGRETTE

  • 1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/3 cup fresh orange juice  (cut out for hardcore Keto) 
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1/2 cup fresh cilantro
  • 1 jalapeño, halved and seeded if desired
  • kosher salt and pepper  {more}
