Coat the chicken breasts in spices and one of the lime's juices then slice and stir up, making sure it's well seasoned. Saute on pre heated cast iron skillet. Meanwhile, take lettuce leaves and arrange two (they reinforce themselves) on each plate. Then chop the rest of the produce. In a small jar put the remaining lime's juice, mayonnaise, olive oil and a squirt of honey. Screw lid on tightly and shake until it comes together into a creamy dressing (be sure to taste check... if it needs a bit more tartness add some apple cider vinegar to supplement the lime. Also if it could be thicker add more mayonnaise). The chicken should be done by now, so you get to assemble it! Put the raw carrot ribbons into the lettuce first, then the chicken and everything else can be piled on top. Cilantro should be the last before the dressing so it doesn't wilt.
2 chicken breast sliced in thin strips
4 iceberg lettuce leaves (good strong bowls)
2 carrots peeled into ribbons
red pepper flakes
salt & pepper
2 limes (juiced)
1 or 2 squirts of organic mayonnaise
1 generous bunch of cilantro
I recommend a crisp, dry, white wine on a rooftop or stoop with this song playing in the background. Oh, and some nice warm weather... you know the kind of evening that's still light around 10pm? And it should be eaten around that time too... Happy Friday!
