I get a monthly recipe from eatchicken.com, and this one looked good! Made it last night and we all loved it. It doesn't say how long to marinate the chicken - mine was in it for about an hour. I pounded it some too. I also added a bit more to my salsa - (which was really like guacamole) some salt, lime juice and minced garlic. (Looking at this now, I think the salt was to be divided between the marinade and the salsa, but I used 2 teaspoons in the marinade and it was fine) This is going to become a summer staple - believe me!

Directions

  1. In a large glass baking dish, place chicken in a single layer. Mix lime juice, oil and salt and pour over chicken, turning several times to coat.
  2. In a medium-sized serving bowl, combine avocados, tomato, onion and cilantro. Mix thoroughly and set aside.
  3. Place chicken breasts on grill and cook about 3-4 minutes per side until they start to brown and are no longer pink in the middle. Remove from heat and top with avocado salsa.

Prepared for My-3-Chefs 2008. The marinade for the chicken was light and tasty. For our tastes the avocado salsa was too heavy on the tomato and bland. We love avocados and spice. A dash of Tabasco added some zip.

It was somewhat bland, I would suggest marrinating the chicken in lime juice, and also incorporating lime into the avacado salsa (which was very light and refreshing).
