Grilled Chicken and Avocado Salad

Hello friends! Well, here we are in August – and there is no mistaking that every time we step outside. It has been hot, hot, hot and humid here these last couple of weeks. Progress on our outdoor building projects has ground to a halt, and we escaped to the mountains last weekend for a little break!

The good news is that when the weather gets this way, our garden goes into overdrive! We’re picking all kinds of fresh, nutritious produce, and putting it to good use here in our cabin kitchen.

Our garden is a big part of our health philosophy – more on that to come… In the meantime, here’s an incredibly simple summer dish that won’t heat up your kitchen, or tie up a precious summer day!

Ingredients for 4 servings:
  • 4 boneless, skinless pasture-raised chicken breast pieces
  • 1 Tablespoon avocado oil
  • 4 cups fresh salad greens, washed
  • 4 avocados, peeled and sliced
  • 2 cups fresh cherry tomatoes. sliced in half
  • Olive oil and balsamic vinegar, or your favorite healthy-fat salad dressing
  • Cajun spice mix (optional)
Directions
  1. Coat the chicken breasts with a little bit of avocado oil and season as desired (we used a Cajun seasoning rub).
  2. Grill the chicken over medium heat until internal temperature at thickest part is at least 165 degrees F
  3. Remove from heat and let rest of 5 minutes.
  4. While chicken rests, add salad greens, tomatoes and avocado to plate.
  5. Top each plate with chicken and drizzle with salad dressing.

Enjoy!

    This looks so yummy. BTW, When I pin it the description defaults to your website name so when people search for chicken recipes in pinterest it probably will not come up.
