1 Tablespoon minced fresh cilantro

1 ¼ Tablespoon fresh lime juice

¾ Tablespoons olive oil

2 (6-ounce) skinless, boneless chicken breast halves

Sea salt to taste


½ cup chopped plum tomato (about 2)

1 Tablespoon finely chopped onion

1 teaspoons fresh lime juice

Sea salt to taste

Cayenne pepper to taste

½ avocado, peeled and finely chopped


To prepare chicken, place chicken breasts between two pieces of saran wrap and pound with a meat mallet or heavy sauté pan until chicken is of an even thickness.

Combine first 3 ingredients in a large bowl; toss chicken breasts in marinade and let stand 30 minutes. Remove chicken from marinade; discard marinade. Sprinkle chicken evenly with salt.

Heat a grill pan over medium-high heat. Lightly coat pan with oil. Add chicken to pan; cook 6 minutes on each side or until done.

To prepare salsa, combine tomato and next 4 ingredients (through pepper) in a medium bowl. Add avocado; stir gently to combine. Serve salsa over chicken.

    This is BY FAR my favorite meal! You will not be disappointed! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this! My husband and I like to grill this outside. I also buy the chicken that is already thin-sliced and trimmed. It shaves off time plus I like the taste of my chicken that way.

    This was easy to make and so flavorful! Was such a nice treat being on the Candida diet.
