A simple recipe that is great on weeknights in the summer. Giving the chicken breast a quick marinade is a great way to infuse some flavour. As always, be careful not to overcook the chicken.
1 lb boneless chicken breast
- 2 cloves garlic, pressed
- 2 tablespoons lime juice
- 3 tablespoons olive oil
- 1⁄4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
- 1 avocado, firm but not hard 1/4 inch dice
- 1⁄4 cup red onion, chopped
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 tablespoon lime juice
- salt and pepper
- 2 tablespoons coriander, chopped
- sliced red onion
- lime wedge
- shredded cabbage
Whisk marinade ingredients together and pour over chicken, marinate 20 minutes, add oil and chicken to a hot heavy skillet and brown on both sides, reduce heat and cook until juices run clear.
While chicken is cooking, mix salsa ingredients together, season with salt and pepper, and stir in coriander.
Serve chicken and salsa on individual plates garnished with red onion, lime and cabbage.
