Grilled Lime Chicken with Avodcado Salsa

Prep time: 20 min
Cook time: 10 min

1 1/2-2 lbs boneless, skinless chicken breasts
2 Tbs+1 tsp lime juice, divided
1 Tbs olive oil
1/2 tsp kosher salt (optional)
2 avocados, diced or mashed
1 tomato, diced
1/4 red or yellow onion, finely diced (about 1/2 c)
1/4 tsp salt or to taste (optional)
1 Tbs chopped fresh cilantro (optional)

1. Place chicken breasts in a flat dish with sides just large enough to hold them in a single layer. Add 2 Tbs lime juice, oil, & kosher salt & flip chicken several times to coat well.

2. In a medium serving bowl, combine avocados, tomato, onion & salt & mix thoroughly. Add cilantro, if using, & remaining teaspoon of lime juice.

3. Heat indoor grill pan or a heavy skillet to medium-high. Cook chicken for 4-5 min per side, until it starts to brown on the outside & is no longer pink inside the thickest part, about 165* on a meat thermometer. Remove from heat, slice into strips, top with avocado salsa, & serve.

This is soooo good. The salt is optional, we didn't use any. The lime chicken is good w/out the avocado salsa as well.
