Tortilla and Jack Chicken with Avocado Cream

Tortilla and Jack Chicken with Avocado Cream
You cannot go wrong with chicken, tortilla chips and cheese.  This meal is amazingly easy and tastes fantastic.  Our condo in Colorado has no A/C, so it was a bit annoying to have to heat the oven, but this chicken was worth it.  And it will be even better when I prepare it in Texas in the comfort of my air conditioned kitchen.  Even C ate the sauce, which was a bit surprising for me.  Miss F had her chicken plain, but she mainly gorged herself on beans.  She is crazy for beans...such a silly girl.  I have no clue where she gets it since I am not a huge bean fan at all. 
Tortilla and Jack Chicken with Avocado Cream
inspired by Bacon, Butter, Cheese and Garlic

1 cup crushed tortillas chips
4 ounces Colby Jack cheese, shredded
½ cup sour cream
½ teaspoon garlic powder
½ teaspoon chili powder
½ teaspoon cumin
2 teaspoons lime juice
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts

1 cup sour cream
1 avocado
1 teaspoon lime juice
½ teaspoon salt

1 tomato, diced

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

In a shallow dish, mix together the chips and cheese. In a separate shallow dish, whisk together the sour cream, garlic powder, chili powder, cumin and lime juice. Dip each chicken breast in the sour cream mixture, then dredge in the chip mixture until completely coated. Place the chicken in a greased baking dish and bake for 30 minutes, until cooked through.

While the chicken is cooking, blend the sour cream, avocado, lime juice and salt in a food processor. Serve the chicken with the sauce and tomato on top.
