2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
2 avocados, diced
1 lime, juiced
2 tablespoons fresh cilantro, chopped
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste
Mixed salad greens (such as spinach or arugula)
Optional toppings: cherry tomatoes, sliced cucumber, sliced red onion
Preheat the grill or preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C).
Season the chicken breasts with salt and pepper. If using the grill, cook the chicken for about 6-8 minutes per side until cooked through. If using the oven, place the chicken breasts on a baking sheet and bake for 20-25 minutes or until cooked through. Let the chicken rest for a few minutes, then slice it into thin strips.
In a small bowl, whisk together the lime juice, olive oil, chopped cilantro, salt, and pepper to make the dressing.
In a large salad bowl, combine the diced avocados and sliced chicken. Pour the dressing over the mixture and gently toss to coat.
Place a bed of mixed salad greens on individual plates. Spoon the chicken and avocado mixture on top of the greens.
If desired, add optional toppings such as cherry tomatoes, sliced cucumber, and sliced red onion.
Serve the salad immediately and enjoy!
