Lime Chicken-Avocado Salad

READY IN: 1hr 20mins
Recipe by Starrynews

A light, refreshing recipe! It is adapted from a recipe found on one of those cards in the grocery store. Pairs quite well with cilantro lime rice. 1 hour of the prep time accounts for the time needed to marinate the chicken. Add more cayenne pepper if you like it spicy!

Loved this. I don't care for raw onions, so used Garlic Chives from my herb garden. I also added a dash of garlic powder. Didn't notice the garlic flavor, and next time would use a little more cayenne pepper. Served with Lime-Cilantro brown rice.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Chop chicken breasts into chunks and place in a resealable plastic bag.
  2. Whisk together lime juice, olive oil, honey, and cayenne pepper and pour half of the mixture over the chicken. Seal bag and marinate in refrigerator for 1 hour. Reserve remaining marinade for later use.
  3. When chicken is ready, spray large saucepan with nonstick cooking spray and heat to medium. Place chicken in pan and discard bag with the marinade inside.
  4. Cover and cook chicken until no longer pink, about 8-10 minutes, flipping chicken pieces occasionally.
  5. Combine chicken, avocado, tomatoes, onion, and cilantro in a bowl. Pour reserved marinade over all and mix well.
