Screen Shot 2017-07-04 at 7.06.42 PM.png

INGREDIENTS

  • Juice of 4 limes, divided
  • 1/4 c. extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 c. plus 1 tbsp. chopped fresh cilantro
  • 2 tsp. honey
  • kosher salt
  • 1 lb. boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 2 c. chopped pineapple
  • 1 avocado, diced (I didn’t add avocado since I am allergic to it)
  • 1/4 red onion, diced
  • Freshly ground black pepper

DIRECTIONS

  1. Make Marinade: In a large bowl, whisk together juice of 3 limes, olive oil, 1/4 cup cilantro and honey and season with salt.
  2. Add chicken to a large Ziploc bag or baking dish and pour over marinade. Let marinate in the refrigerator at least 3 hours, or up to overnight.
  3. When ready to grill, heat grill to high. Oil grates and add chicken, then grill until charred, 8 minutes per side.
  4. Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, stir together pineapple, avocado, red onion, remaining lime juice, and remaining tablespoon cilantro. Season with salt and pepper.
  5. Spoon salsa over chicken and serve.

I added a dash of cinnamon to the salsa and a chopped jalapeno pepper.
