Recipe: Marinated Chicken with Avocado Salsa

This was definitely a keeper and that avocado salsa would be good on so many things. 

You will need: 

2 Chicken Tenders or 1 Chicken Breast
2 tablespoons minced fresh cilantro
2 1/2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil
1/4 teaspoon salt

Add cilantro, lemon juice, olive oil and salt to a ziplock baggie. Add chicken to baggie and marinate for 30 minutes in the refrigerator. 

 Heat a small pan on medium heat and add marinated chicken to pan, cook on Med. heat until cooked through. 

Salsa:
1 chopped tomato 
2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 avocado, peeled and finely chopped
Add all ingredients to a bowl, mix well and set aside in refrigerator until ready to serve over cooked chicken.

Cole Slaw:
1/2 cup of shredded cabbage
1TBSP Mayonnaise
Salt and pepper to taste
Combine all ingredients and let sit in the fridge for at least an hour before serving. 


Enjoy!

Cole slaw can be made so many different ways and sometimes I do add shredded carrots to mine but I like it really simple too.

    1. It's much better if you mix it with other stuff or mash it with a little lemon and salt.
