So it's the last day for Grilling Sauces and of course we couldn't leave good ol' chicken out. This sauce adds so much flavor to chicken....which we all know needs a lot of help!!! I love the smoothness of the avocado mixed again with some chiles and fresh lime juice. So hard to figure out what to put on BBQ chicken except BBQ sauce, so here's a great alternative. This sauce can be made 2 days ahead and kept in the refrigerator.
1 avocado quartered and pitted but skin left on for grilling
1 small onion quartered
2 tomatillos husked and halved
4 garlic cloves
1 jalapeno seeded and quartered
1 poblano chile seeded and quartered
Place all ingredients on skewers and brush with olive oil. Put the skewers on a hot grill and cook until ingredients get charred spots, about 15 minutes. Let cool. Remove the skin from the avocado and place all ingredients in a blender or food processor.
1/4 cup cilantro leaves (I don't like cilantro so I use Italian parsley)
1/4 cup water
2 tbl fresh lime juice
Blend until smooth and season with salt and pepper. Serve alongside some nice grilled chicken breasts. So now you have a sauce/salsa for steak, pork chops and chicken. You will wow your company with these superflavorful accompaniments!!!
Happy Grilling!
