Cooking Instructions:

Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Heat cast iron skillet over medium heat. Add oil to pan. Sprinkle salt, pepper, and chili powder on both sides of all 4 chicken breasts. Once pan is hot cook chicken for 3 minutes on 1 side and 1 additional minute on the other side. Remove from pan (note chicken will not be cooked all the way through) and rest on a plate.

Depending on juices from chicken, you may need to add a little bit more olive oil.

Sprinkle avocados with sugar and lay them green side down in pan for 2-3 minutes until there is a good char on them. Remove from pan.

Add additional olive oil to pan if needed. Add red onions and sauté for 3-4 minutes. Add scallions and poblano pepper and sauté for an additional 2-3 minutes. Add limejuice and soy sauce. Nestle chicken back into the pan and bake for 7-9 minutes until chicken is done.

While chicken is cooking, in a small bowl combine sour cream and water to create a sauce that can be drizzled over dish. Garnish with cilantro and lime wedges (optional). ENJOY!!!!
