This is quickly becoming a favorite around here. It's SO yummy and fresh-tasting, perfect for Spring/Summer menus, especially because the chicken is best cooked on the grill!
Grilled Chicken with Homemade Salsa:
Marinade for chicken:
2 boneless/skinless chicken bosoms (I grew up calling them this, am I weird or what???)
1/4 cup olive oil
1tbsp lemon juice
1/2 tsp garlic powder
Tomatoes (2 large or 3 small)
1 avocado (not too ripe!)
1/2 large white onion
1 tbsp lime juice
Salt and pepper to taste
In a small bowl, mix the marinade ingredients together, then pour into a bowl with the chicken and marinate for 1-2 hours.
For the salsa, chop up the vegetables into small pieces, and finely chop the onion (the smaller sized chunks, the better, flavor-wise!). Mince the cilantro and mix it in the vegetables with the lime juice, salt and pepper. I tend to like my salsa really salty, so you may want to experiment with the spices to find what you like best!
After grilling the chicken, pour a generous amount of salsa over each serving and enjoy! I like serving this with cilantro lime rice and black beans, it's the perfect accompaniment!
