Asian Mexican Fusion Chicken Recipe

As you may know, I am really working on losing a few extra pounds – ok – A LOT of extra pounds. I have been seeking recipes using Asian inspired spices, which have incredible health benefits.  While searching these out, I discovered a fellow blogger’s recipe for Sazon Goya (thank you from the SkinnyTaste.com).  It is a type of seasoning salt found in Mexican markets.

Step One in My Asian-Mexican Fusion Chicken

Avocado is one of the best sources of monounsaturated fat and is considered a nutrient-rich fruit. Make this Avocado Ranch Sauce in advance, so it can be chilling in the refrigerator, as it will be a condiment for the chicken recipe. Make it several hours in advance, or, several days.  It should last in the refrigerator for 5-7 days, stored in an air tight jar.
