Cayenne Rubbed Chicken with Avocado Salsa

  • I love this time of year when everyone is thinking about lighter, healthier recipes.  It gets me inspired to find a bunch of my own.  This chicken is really flavorful...the cayenne gives it a nice spice, which is easily cooled down with the yummy avocados.  

  • Cayenne Rubbed Chicken with Avocado Salsa
  • From:  Martha Stewart

  • Coarse salt and ground pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves, (6 to 8 ounces each)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 medium red onion, finely diced
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 1 Hass avocado, pitted and cut into chunks
  1. In a small bowl, combine 1 teaspoon salt, 1/4 teaspoon pepper, and cayenne; rub all over chicken.
  2. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium. Add chicken, and cook until browned on the outside and opaque throughout, 8 to 10 minutes per side.
  3. Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, combine onion and lime juice; set aside. Just before serving, fold avocado chunks into onion mixture; season with salt and pepper. Serve chicken topped with salsa.
