  • 2 Tablespoons fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 2 1/2 Tablespoons lime juice
  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil (I use light extra virgin)
  • 2 large boneless skinless chicken breast halves
  • Pam or other non-stick cooking spray
  • 2 plum tomatoes, chopped
  • 2 Tablespoons onion, chopped
  • 2 Tablespoons fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 1 Tablespoon lime juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • avocado, cut into small cubes


  1. Mix first 3 ingredients together and place into large ziploc bag with chicken. 
  2. Allow chicken to marinate in refrigerator for 30 minutes, turning once after 15 minutes. 

  3. Remove chicken from bag and discard marinade.

  4. Preheat grill. Spray with nonstick spray.

  5. Place chicken on grill. Cook for 8-10 minutes a side or until chicken is cooked through.

  6. While chicken is cooking prepare salsa. Mix chopped tomato, onion and cilantro with lime juice and season with salt and pepper. 
  7. Cut avocado in half and remove seed. Cup the avocado half in your hand and, with a sharp knife, score the avocado lengthwise and across width without breaking through the skin of the avocado. Turn upside down over bowl and squeeze the cubes of avocado into the bowl. 

  8. Stir mixture together carefully so as not to mash the avocado.

  9. To serve: Remove chicken from grill, place on top of some fresh greens and top with a little avocado salsa. Serve the remaining salsa on the side.
