Grilled Cilantro Chicken Breast with Salsa

I absolutely LOVE this chicken.  The mix of flavors are both savory and refreshing.  With grilling weather and  fresh herbs and veggie season right around the corner it’s a win win!

 

Ingredients

Chicken:
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
2T minced fresh cilantro

2 1⁄2 T lime juice
1 1⁄2 T olive oil
1/4t salt
cooking spray

Salsa:
1C plum tomatoes (about 3)

2 1⁄2 t lime juice

1/4t salt

1 avocado

2 1⁄2 t white onion minced

1/8t pepper

Directions:

For Chicken:
In medium bowl, combine cilantro, lime juice, olive oil, salt. Add in chicken breasts and coat with mixture. Let them sit for 10 mins, flipping after 5 mins to marinade each side evenly.

While chicken is in marinade, chop and gently stir all ingredients for salsa. Set aside.

Heat a grill pan or skillet over medium heat. Spray with cooking spray and place chicken in pan. Discard any leftover marinade.

Cook over medium heat for approx. 6 mins each side or until juices run clear. Place cooked chicken on plate and top with the fresh salsa.
