Lime Glazed Chicken with Spicy Salsa

This meal has been a long time coming.  It was featured as the cover recipe on Australian Good Food Magazine back in March!  I told you it was a long time coming.  Isn't there a saying though, something about all good things are waiting for?

Last night, even though the weather had taken a decided turn for the cold again we decided to have this lovely fresh springtime meal.  "Precious" had decided that she was making the meal so it was a real treat for me!

It was a lovely fresh, flavourful, easy dish to make, and the corn chips were the best I have had - they were lovely and crisp and would be great for nachos as they could hold up under pressure!!

We only slightly tweeked the recipe!!

Lime Glazed Chicken with Spicy Salsa

Serves 4

1 pkt corn tortillas (10 per pack)
1 tbs olive oil
juice of 2 limes, plus wedges to serve
dash tabasco sauce
1 tbs sweet chilli sauce 
4 x chicken breast fillets
2 large tomatoes, diced
2 avocados, chopped
1/2 small red onion, finely diced
1/2 cup coriander, chopped
2 tbs basil, chopped
1 long red chilli, seeded, finely diced (or to taste)
garlic olive oil spray
sea salt

Preheat oven to 180C.  

To make the salsa place the tomato, avocado, herbs, onion and chilli with a small amount of oil in a bowl.  Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper.  Set aside.

Place tortillas on a baking tray that has been lined with baking paper.  Spray the tortillas with the garlic olive oil spray - bake for 3-4 minutes, turn them, spray again, and dust with sea salt. Continue in this manner for another two to three times - spraying and lightly salting until they are lovely and golden and crisp.

Meanwhile heat a BBQ or chargrill on medium.  Whisk together olie oil, lime juice, tabasco, and sweet chilli sauce together.  Rub this mixture into the chicken.  Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper.

Cook chicken, turning every 5 minutes, for 10-15 minutes, or until cooked through.

Slice the chicken and serve with the corn chips, salsa and lime wedges.

Tequilla optional!!!!

This dish is so easy - it is a perfect one for all those budding Junior MasterChefs to try!!
