I’ve been in a food rut. I haven’t been posting as much food lately because I make the same things over and over. So last week I went to Pinterest hoping to be inspired for some new fast dinner recipe ideas. Keyword being: fast. The last thing I want to do when I get home from work is experiment with a new recipe. I just want to eat.

So I found this pin, and unlike 90% of my pins, I went and made it right away.
cilantro chicken pinterest

This sauce recipe is so simple and sooo flavorful. It is a new favorite twist on tacos.

For the sauce you will need:

  • 1 cup fresh cilantro leaves (do not include stems)
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons sliced, toasted almonds
  • 3 tablespoons chopped, fresh garlic
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon lime juice
  • 1/2 cup shredded asiago (Parmesan or Romano can be substituted too)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 cup chicken broth

Place all the ingredients in a food processor and blend together.

You saute the chicken with olive oil, and once cooked mix it with the sauce in a serving bowl.

Place on tortilla, and top it off with your favorite taco toppings.

My quick Pinterest to life adaptation came on the day Young House Love announced their Pinterest Challenge so I am participating. Check out all the others here.

How often do you actually do the things you pin?
