Grilled Chicken w/ Avocado Salsa (Recipe)


✅ 1 1/2 pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts or 4 chicken breasts

For the Marinade

✅ 2 garlic cloves finely minced

✅ 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil (I use Kasandrinos)

✅ ¼ cup cilantro chopped
✅ Juice of 1 lime

✅ 1/2 tsp Cumin

✅ ½ tsp paprika

✅ ½ tsp salt or to taste

✅ ¼ tsp black pepper

Avocado Salsa

✅ 2 avocados diced

✅ 2 small (or 1 large tomato) chopped

✅ ¼ cup red onion chopped

✅ 1 jalapeno de-seeded and chopped (optional)

✅ 1/4 cup cilantro finely chopped

✅ Juice of 1 lime

✅ fresh cracked pepper & salt to taste


1️⃣ In a large bowl, whisk all the ingredients for the marinade and set aside.

2️⃣ Pound the breasts to even thickness or slice in half horizontally to get evenly sized breasts and add to the bowl of marinade. Mix through until the chicken is fully coated in the marinade. Use right away if needed or marinate for 30-minutes or up to 12 hours.

3️⃣ Grill chicken over medium-high heat or in a large heavy-duty skillet on the stovetop for 5-6 minutes per side or until the inside is cooked through and the outside is charred. Top with fresh avocado salsa and serve immediately.

4️⃣ While the chicken is grilled, combine all the ingredients for the salsa in a small bowl. Cover with plastic wrap in the fridge until ready to use.
