Ingredients

2 avocados ripe, but firm

2 tablespoons lime juice divided

1 tablespoon olive oil divided

salt and pepper to taste​

4 chicken breasts

1 t garlic powder

1 t onion powder

1 pint cherry tomatoes

½ red onion medium, diced

½ c feta cheese crumbled

Cut the avocado in wedges and gently rub them with lime juice, olive oil, salt and pepper.

Preparation

  1. Heat a grill pan or an outside grill over medium-high heat. Grill the avocado wedges for 2-4 minutes per side, or until grill marks are visible. Set aside.

  2. Meanwhile, drizzle the chicken with ½ tablespoon of olive oil. Sprinkle with the seasonings, and toss well to completely coat.

  3. Add the chicken to the preheated grill and cook for 6-8 minutes per side, or until cooked through and the internal temperature reaches 75C (165F). Once the chicken is done allow it to sit for a few minutes, then slice it.
