Yield:
4 chicken breast halves

Ingredients

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper

  • ¼ teaspoon ground cayenne pepper

  • 4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • 1 red onion, minced

  • 2 tablespoons lime juice

  • 1 avocado, diced

  • Salt and ground black pepper to taste

Directions

  1. Stir 1 teaspoon salt, 1/4 teaspoon black pepper, and cayenne pepper together in a small bowl; rub evenly into the chicken breasts.

  2. Heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium heat; cook the chicken in the heated oil until no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, 5 to 7 minutes per side. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).

  3. Stir the onion, lime juice, and avocado together in a bowl; season with salt and pepper. Spoon over the chicken breasts to serve.
