1/4 cup lime juice, about 2 limes
1/4 cup low-sodium chicken broth
3 scallions, cut into 1-inch pieces
2 cloves garlic
1 jalapeno, seeded if desired
1 tablespoon honey
Kosher salt
1 1/2-pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 red onion, sliced into 1/2-inch thick rounds
2 orange and/or yellow bell peppers, quartered, seeds removed
1 ripe avocado, halved, seeded and peeled
1 1/2 teaspoons olive oil
1/8 teaspoon ground cumin
1/8 teaspoon ground coriander
1/4 cup fat-free Greek Yogurt
12 corn tortillas

Method :

1. Put the cilantro, lime juice, broth, scallions, garlic, jalapeno, honey, and salt in a blender, puree until smooth. Reserve 2 tablespoons; do not wash out the blender.

Put chicken breasts in a medium bowl and the peppers and onions in another. Divide the remaining cilantro puree evenly between the chicken and the peppers and onions. Toss well to coat the chicken and vegetables and let stand, at room temperature, for 30 minutes.

2. Add the avocado, 1/2 cup water, and the reserved 2 tablespoons cilantro sauce to the blender. Puree until smooth and season with salt. Set aside.

3. Heat the oil in a small skillet set over medium heat until hot. Add the cumin and coriander and continue to cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds to 1 minute. Pour the spices over the yogurt and set aside for the flavors to blend. Stir before serving.

4. Preheat a grill for medium-high/direct heat cooking. Oil the grill grates. Grill the chicken and vegetables, turning, until the vegetables are tender and the chicken reaches an internal temperature of 160 degrees F, about 5 to 8 minutes for the vegetables and 12 to 15 minutes for the chicken. Let chicken rest 5 minutes. Place the tortillas on the grill until just warmed through, about 30 seconds.

5. To assemble the fajitas: slice the onions and peppers into thin strips and then slice the chicken. Place some peppers, onions, chicken and cilantro in a tortilla topped with the spiced yogurt and the avocado sauce.

Olive Oil Ice Cream By Mr.Tim

Homemade Olive Oil Ice Cream

 

Ingredients:

½ cup high-quality, extra-fruity olive oil (like Colavita Extra Fruity)
6 egg yolks
²/³ cup granulated sugar, divided
2 cups whole milk
1 cup heavy cream
¼ tsp sea salt
2 tbsp corn syrup or tapioca syrup

Directions

Measure out olive oil into a large bowl set over an ice bath (half ice and half water). Place a fine-mesh strainer over top and set aside.

In a medium bowl, lightly beat together egg yolks and half the sugar until the yolks are all broken up.

In a heavy-bottomed saucepan, combine milk, cream, salt, syrup and remaining sugar over medium-high heat. Cook to 150°F (or until mixture is hot to the touch), stirring frequently.

While whisking yolks constantly, slowly pour half the hot cream mixture into the yolk mixture. (This tempers the yolks so that you aren’t just cooking up some scrambled eggs.) Slowly pour the cream-and-yolk mixture back into the saucepan, whisking constantly.

Switch to a wooden spoon or silicon spatula. Continue to stir the mixture constantly, scraping the bottom of the pan as you go, until it reaches 170°F and develops a nappe—a coating on the back of the spoon that leaves a clean line when you run a finger through it.

Making sure you have a clean whisk at the ready, pour the mixture through the strainer into the cooled olive oil. Using a bit of elbow grease, whisk your mixture into the oil (it will try to resist, but resistance is futile) until you have one smooth, uniform ice cream mix cooling off in your ice bath. Stir occasionally to help expedite the cooling process until the mixture is room temperature.

Transfer to an airtight container, pressing a layer of cling wrap directly onto the surface of the custard to prevent it from forming a skin. Let it age in your fridge for at least 1 hour, but ideally overnight. Churn in an ice-cream maker according to the manufacturer’s directions. Makes about 1 quart.
