You have to know that I’m not much into chicken breast BUT I know that it’s a healthy & lean protein so I try to incorporate it as much as possible.

All that being said, this dish was AMAZING. And I have to give props to my husband. He’s a total grill master. He grilled these breasts & they weren’t dry or overcooked. They were perfectly juicy & yummy. I wrote down EXACTLY how he did it so you can do it too!


4 Organic Chicken Breasts

2 Limes zested & juiced

1/4 Cup Olive Oil

1/3 Cup Chopped Cilantro

3 Cloves Garlic, minced

Salt & Pepper to taste


1 1/2 medium avocados, diced

1/2 Cup Cherry Tomatoes, halved

1/2 Cup Red Onion, diced small

1 Clove Garlic

1 Tablespoon Fresh Lime Juice

  1. In a baking dish, mix together all ingredients for the chicken except the breasts.

  2. Add the chicken breasts & marinate for 15 minutes up to 4 hours.

  3. Preheat the grill to around 450º. Grill the chicken for about 7 minutes a side. You can use a meat thermometer until the meat is at 160-165 degrees.

  4. Once done, let rest for about 5 minutes

  5. While the chicken is cooking, mix together all the ingredients for the salsa.

  6. Serve the chicken with the salsa on top.

  7. Enjoy!
