    1. 1
      Preheat a grill over medium high heat while you butterfly the chicken; in a small bowl, combine chili powder, brown sugar, coriander, cumin and 3/4 teaspoon salt and rub over chicken (you won't need all of it).
    2. 2
      Grill the chicken 3 minutes, turn and grill until just cooked through, about 1 or 2 minutes; let rest 5 to 10 minutes.
    3. 3
      Meanwhile, prepare the dressing: Whisk together the olive oil, lime juice, 1 tablespoon of the cilantro, honey, 1/2 teaspoon salt, some pepper, and a few drops of Tabasco or place these ingredients in a lidded glass jar and shake to combine.
    4. 4
      Combine beans, tomatoes, green onions, remaining 2 teaspoons cilantro and a pinch of salt; add 2 tablespoons of the dressing and toss gently.
    5. 5
      Toss the lettuce with a little dressing (reserve some dressing to drizzle over the chicken); arrange dressed lettuce on a serving platter or individual bowls or plates.
    6. 6
      Slice the chicken very thinly and arrange over lettuce; pit and slice the avocado and arrange with the chicken.
    7. 7
      Arrange black bean salsa on the lettuce as well; drizzle chicken and avocado with dressing.
    8. 8
      Garnish with pine nuts or pepitas and remaining cilantro.
