Mustard Lime Chicken with Avocado Salsa: Guest Post by Jhuls @The Not So Creative Cook

*Please Note: This was a pre-scheduled post, as my hubby and I are enjoying some much needed rest and relaxation for a couple of weeks. Please do stop by and comment…just know that I won’t be able to reply for a while. I appreciate you all!*

Today you are in for a big treat! Why? Because the lovely Jhuls from The Not So Creative Cookย cooked for me and is bringing you a super fun recipe! Don’t yet know Jhuls? Please hop over to her blogย and introduce yourself! She is a wonderful cook….check out her Yema Cake…looks so rich and delicious! Or what about these sugar glazed doughnuts?! If you haven’t guessed yet, both Jhuls and I like our sweets! ๐Ÿ™‚

Here is a woman who has been super busy and feeling stressed, and yet my last minute (and believe me, it was last minute) ask for her to do a guest post for me didn’t sway her a bit! She instantly said yes. This alone says a lot about this dear woman.ย  In her own words, “I will always find time to cook, especially for a sweet friend like you.” Awe….thank you Jhuls!!

She is giving, thoughtful, funny, witty, sweet….did I mention funny?! This girl always has me laughing! She is a real treasure!

Okay, enough from me….here is Jhuls!ย 

After my guest post for Sonal @ Simply Vegetarian 777, I was not expecting another guest post invitation. Until one day, I received another invitation and it says: โ€œThe only requirement? Low-glycemicโ€ฆ no refined sugars.โ€ I think you know now who would require this. You still donโ€™t know? Who else? Lori @ Creating Beauty in the Kitchen. I will tell you again and again that Lori is such an amazing gal. She just rescued me and took me with her during Fiesta Friday #25 as I have not prepared anything and too shy to come. Sheโ€™s indeed an angel. โค

I am beyond happy and honored to be doing this guest post while Lori goes hiatus. And I am so, so happy to know that I am the first to do a guest post for her. Sheโ€™s also the first who did a guest post for me. How sweet! โค

Going back to the invitation, I have read that message around 4:00 AM as I just finished taking my pre-dawn meal for Ramadan and I told myself โ€œUh-oh! Low-glycemic and no-refined sugars? How would I do that?โ€ On that same moment (mind you, I didnโ€™t sleep yet and I still need to wake up at 8:00 for work), I searched for low-glycemic index stuffs and I found out that I mostly eat high-glycemic foods. ๐Ÿ˜€ โ€œSo what to prepare nowโ€, I asked myself. Still, I did not sleep โ€“ I searched for low-glycemic recipes. After searching for minutes, I wanted to slap my face. Why? Why? Becauseโ€ฆ why do I keep asking my dear BFF, Google, when I could find something from Loriโ€™s blog? โ€œAhhh! Finally, now I am thinking!โ€ ๐Ÿ˜€

I clicked and went for desserts (what else do you expect me to make?), but I was not yet ready to set aside my naughty ingredients. So, I went for dinner recipes.ย I was stuck in the middle of Mustard Lime Chicken with Avocados and Tomatoes, and Chicken with Avocado Salsa. My mind was struggling. I cannot choose. But then, a decision should be made. Hereโ€™s what I did: Mustard Lime Chicken with Avocado Salsa. Did you get it? ๐Ÿ˜‰ I took the chicken recipe from the first choice and took the avocado salsa from the second. ๐Ÿ˜› I just did very slight changes โ€“ I did not have Dijon mustard on hand, so I took 3 tbsp yellow mustard and 1 tbsp honeyโ€ฆ and I used ยฝ tbsp chili powder instead of 1. (Just click the given link to get the original recipe from our dear Lori.)

I am not sure how Loriโ€™s recipe tastes like, so I am not sure if this should be a little tangy or I did something wrong. Nonetheless, I loved the recipe. And Lori, this is my first time to eat Avocado Salsa, and I liked it. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Are Avocados supposed to be sweet?? I take Avocados, but only in smoothies. ๐Ÿ˜› So glad that the Avocado salsa did not turn into โ€˜wash and blendโ€™. ๐Ÿ˜€

If I feel courageous enough to sub my naughty ingredients, I will try baking some of your sweets. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Again, thank you so much, Lori, for this opportunity. I wish you a fabulous vacation. Please take photos and weโ€™d love to hear about it. We will surely miss you!


Jhuls- I absolutely love that you combined two of my recipes, made a change or two and created a new one! Now that is creative thinking my friend! This sounds wonderful! And your pictures?! Gorgeous! You put so much thought into this…wow! And you made a low-glycemic recipe!! You go girl!! Thanks again Jhuls! I will be able to relax better during these couple weeks thanks to you!! โค
