Chicken Tacos & Spice of Advice from Goop by Gwyneth Paltrow


This is very special post. I really like Gwyneth Paltrow, her approach to food, creativity and her culinary ideas.
My kids love guacamole and Mexican cuisine is very popular choice for lunch time. I made a lot of different types of guacamole before but recipe from GOOP by Gwyneth Paltrow is the best. Simple, creamy, delicious with the perfect choice of ingredients. Thank You Gwyneth.

For the Chicken Tacos you will need:

8 Handmade corn tortillas, from the store
1 lb. Chicken breast, tenders
Spanish smoked paprika, for the taste
Extra virgin olive oil
Sea salt, for the taste
Black peppercorns, for the taste

For the Guacamole you will need:

2 Avocados
1/2 of the red onion
Fresh cilantro
Lime
Sea Salt

For the Pico de Gallo you will need:

Pint of Cherry tomatoes, yellow and red
Green Jalapeno pepper, for the taste
Sea salt
Cilantro handfull
1/2 of the lime
1/2 of the red onion

It is very important to make meat right for the tacos. I love to bake chicken breast with little sea salt, fresh ground black pepper and hint of Spanish smoked paprika.

Place aluminum heavy duty foil on the baking sheet. Arrange chicken breast tenders on the foil. Sprinkle with sea salt, fresh ground black peppercorns, little Spanish smoked paprika and little extra virgin olive oil. Bake for 45-50 minutes. Just before serving cut the chicken breast to a bite size pieces.

Pico di Gallo is very easy to make and there is nothing better then home made one.
On the wooden board using small santoku knife cut the red onion, fresh cilantro, red and yellow cherry tomatoes (yellow because they are sweeter) and little bit of green jalapeno pepper (for the taste).
Add sea salt and squeeze of lime. Mix slowly and set aside. For the kids I combine everything except hot pepper in the extra bowl.

Guacamole I made using original recipe from the GOOP by Gwineth Paltrow.
This is how I prepared it:
Cut two large softer avocados on half, take the pits out and clean them from their shell.
Using the food processor add avocados, cilantro, red onion cut in cubes, salt and squeeze of lime.

Process on low for just a few seconds.
Transfer the guacamole in the serving dish.

And now the best part.

Take the fresh tortilla. I love to use blue corn tortillas too.
Add little, guacamole, little pico de gallo and warm chicken breast bites pieces.

You can always add sides like: sour cream or beans, your choice: refriend, black or pinto.

Every bite of this wonderful tacos is absolutely delicious, fresh and healthy.

Avocados provide nearly 20 essential nutrients, including fiber, potassium, Vitamin E, B-vitamins and folic acid. They also act as a “nutrient booster” by enabling the body to absorb more fat-soluble nutrients, such as alpha and beta-carotene and lutein, in foods that are eaten with the fruit.

Piece of baked chicken breast (140 g) has 43 grams of protein.

Cherry tomatoes are rich in vitamin A, Vitamin C and fiber.
