3 garlic cloves, peeled

Instructions
Preheat oven to 375 degrees
Toss all of the birds nest ingredients with salt, pepper, and olive oil and place it in the bottom of a cast iron skillet or other pan – this will be the “nest” for you bird
Toss the chicken breasts in lime juice, salt, pepper, and olive oil and lay on the nest
Place in the oven for 45 minutes to an hour or until the juices run clear
Remove the chicken from the oven
Turn the oven to broil and broil on high for 3-4 minutes until the skin is nice and crisp
Top the chicken with a healthy dollop of pimento cheese,
Return the skillet to the broiler for about 3 minutes (just enough to let the pimento cheese soften and bubble just slightly
Top with a few avocado slices, a scoop of pico de gallo, and crumbled tortilla chips. Serve with a simple roasted vegetable like asparagus
Enjoy!
