Chipotle Lemon Pepper Chicken with Plum and Jalapeno Salsa

1:18 PM

Today for dinner, I wanted chicken but had no idea how I wanted it. I spied the bag of charcoal and made my way outside in the backyard.

You will need:
For the Chicken
Chicken breasts (I used 6)
1 can of chipotles (chopped)
2 lemons
4 tbsp lemon pepper seasoning
1 tbsp salt

For this chicken, I seasoned the cleaned chicken breast with fresh squeezed lemon juice (1 lemon) and lemon pepper seasoning with salt. Make sure to sprinkle evenly to coat the front and back of the chicken. I then chopped up a small can of chipotles in adobe sauce. I spread the chopped chipotles and sauce over the chicken and and placed them on the hot grill with fresh slices of lemon on top.

Squeeze lemon juice on the chicken every 15 minutes until done. You can also sprinkle more lemon pepper seasoning on it as well. I like a tangy lemon taste, so I added just a bit more.  Also, reserve some of your chipotle sauce to brush over the chicken once after you flip. Cook until juices run clear.  You can also cook these on top of the stove or bake.

For the salsa, I peeled one sweet plum and diced it. I also chopped one fresh jalapeno pepper and 1/3 chopped onion. Squeeze the juice of one lemon and add salt to taste. Mix well and serve over your chicken.

My mother is not a fan of chicken breasts, because she says they are dry. She loved this so much and said it was really moist. I know if my mama says it is good, it has to be pretty good.

I love a good sandwich and I love a good roasted tomato. Seasoned just right, you can't beat those tender slices of roasted tomatoes.  And when you add bacon? Oh my gosh, so much yes.

This is a super easy recipe and perfect compliment to any sandwich.

Wrapped the uncooked bacon around each tomato slice and place on baking sheet. Drizzle with lemon juice and olive oil and sprinkle with the Kyvan Dry BBQ Rub.

Place in oven at 350 degrees and bake for about 40 minutes or until bacon is cooked thoroughly.

Remove from heat and serve atop your favorite sandwich.

It is no secret my crew and I love Asian inspired meals. I seriously watch Mark Weins of Migrationology every single day.  He is this amazing blogger and food traveler that I am subscribed to and dude makes me so hungry with every single video. He does primarily focus on Asian countries but he has been featuring videos of his trip to Mexico and that is another place that has some serious amazing good food.

Anywoo, I am now contributing as recipe developer for Town and Gown magazine here in my town. When the editor said healthy and good, I knew I wanted to do Asian inspired. The use of fresh greens, herbs and veggies is so inspiring and so healthy. Pair it with a little flair with the sauces and oh muh gawd, yes.

My children loved each one of these recipes but they took most to the spring/summer rolls so much that I had to make them everyday for that entire week. I didn't complain though, heck, they were eating clean, right.

Check out these recipes coming to the Town and Gown website soon, but for now, if you are local to Starkville, Mississippi or the surrounding areas, you can pick up the magazine locally and try these out!
