Wine Pairings by @grapefriend

Chenin blanc has a little apple flavor and a lot of acid that will be a great match for the avocado goat cheese sauce.

Beer Pairings

Definitely an American IPA or an amber.

TK Table Talk:

How many of your ancestors can you name? What do you know about them?

What To Do:

1. Chicken may arrive slightly frozen. Thaw as needed.

2. Cook the Chicken: Brush or rub a grill pan with the canola oil or spray with a non-stick cooking spray and place over high heat. Salt and pepper the chickentenders and place on the hot grill. Cook until juices run clear, turning once (about 10-15 minutes). Remove to a plate and allow to rest for 5 minutes.

3. Make the Avocado Goat Cheese Sauce: Cut and pit the avocados and scoop the flesh into the bowl of a food-processor or blender. Add goat cheese, goat cheese crumbles, packagedlime juice, 3 tablespoons water and ½ teaspoon cumin. Process until smooth (for a chunkier sauce, use a mixing bowl and fork). Season to taste with salt and pepper.

4. Place the cooked chicken on a cutting board and roughly chop (¼ -½-inch pieces).

5. Char Tortillas: Heat tortillas by placing directly over a gas burner or under a broiler until lightly charred on both sides.

To Serve: Cut the lime into wedges. Spread each tortilla with a spoonful of avocado goat cheese mixture. Top with chopped chicken, pico de gallo and a squeeze of lime.

Pro Tip:

Did you notice your avocado goat cheese sauce stayed a beautiful green for a long time after you made it? The reason for the envious color hold is not just the squeeze of lime, it’s the enzymes in the goat cheese that help it from turning dark.
