I got this recipe from my good friend, Marcy. It's absolutely fabulous. It's simple, easy and quick. The flavors go together so well, and it's just perfection. I cannot say enough good things about it! I'm forever in your debt for this one, Marcy! :)
Oh, and don't let the cayenne scare you away. I'm a huge wuss about heat in my food, and I ended up adding more cayenne the second time I made it.
4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 medium red onion, finely chopped
2 tablespoons lime juice
1 Hass avocado, pitted and cut into chunks
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
salt and pepper
In a small bowl, combine 1 teaspoon salt, 1/4 teaspoon pepper, and 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper.
Rub spices all over chicken breasts. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium. Add chicken and cook 8-10 minutes per side, or until done. I actually didn't use a skillet - I used my electric griddle. I still added a bit of oil to the griddle for flavor.
After chicken is done, combine onion, lime juice salt and pepper into a medium bowl.
Serve chicken topped with salsa.
