Ingredients

Scale

For the Chicken

  • 1 1/2 pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts (4 total)
  • juice of 1/2 lime
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 tablespoon cumin (I use this brand of organic seasoning)
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper

For the Avocado Feta Salsa

  • 1 ripe avocado, peeled, pitted, and cubed
  • 1 roma tomato, diced
  • 1/4 cup chopped red onion
  • 1/4 cup chopped artichoke hearts
  • 1/4 cup capers
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/3 cup crumbled feta cheese
  • 3 tablespoons avocado oil
  • juice of 1/2 lime
  • sea salt and black pepper, to taste

Instructions

For the Avocado Feta Salsa

  1. In a large bowl, combine all of the ingredients and lightly toss until well combined. If time allows, refrigerate the salsa for at least one hour before serving. Doing this will allow all of the vibrant flavors in this salsa to really come together.

For the Chicken:

  1. Pre-heat your barbecue or on the stove top, heat a grill pan over medium-high heat.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the lime juice, olive oil, garlic, and cilantro, cumin, chili powder, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and pepper. Whisk to thoroughly mix.
  3. Toss the chicken breasts in the marinade until evenly coated. (If time allows, let the chicken marinate in the sauce for a few hours)
  4. Place the chicken breasts on the pre-heated grill, pour over any marinade that is left in the bowl. Grill the chicken until it is cooked all the way through or if you are using a thermometer, until it has an internal temperature of 165°F.  Top with Avocado-Feta Salsa, and enjoy!

 

Notes

  • If you do not have a grill pan, or don't want to fire up the outdoor grill, this can also be pan-seared, baked, or even air-fried.
