Garlic and Lime Grilled Chicken & Avocado Salad

We want to help you stick to that new year’s resolution of eating healthier with this delicious chicken dinner recipe!

Ingredients:

1 large chicken breast
1/4- 1/2 tsp salt (to taste)
1/4- 1/2 tsp salt (to taste)
1/2 tsp garlic powder 
1/4 tsp onion powder
1/4 tsp pepper
Juice of half a lime
Olive oil

Directions:
Spray or lightly coat your grill pan with olive oil, and then set it over high heat. While it heats up, butterfly your chicken breast (cut it down the middle lengthwise, but stop about a half-inch short of cutting all the way through- so the chicken opens like a book). Flatten the chicken out and then evenly sprinkle both sides with salt, pepper, onion and garlic powders. Squeeze half the lime juice onto it.

Once the grill pan is smoking hot, cook the chicken breast on it. After about a minute or two, adjust the position of the chicken slightly (so as to get a crossed char pattern). The chicken takes about 3 minutes to a side, depending on the thickness- just check by cutting through a thick part of the chicken- should not see any pink! Take the chicken off the heat and serve!

Avocado and Tomato Salad:
Ingredients:
1/2 an avocado
4-5 grape tomatoes (cut into halves or thirds)
1 tbsp finely chopped red onion
Juice of half a lime
1 tsp apple cider vinegar 
Olive oil
Salt

Directions: Slice your avocado into thin wedges. Halve your avocado, scoop out the half with a large spoon, place it yellow-side down on a cutting board, and slice it lengthwise into half-inch slices. Place on a plate (I like to fan out my avocado slices so every part gets seasoned pretty equally)Cut up your tomatoes and add to the avocado. Sprinkle some salt over the avocado and tomatoes. Whisk together the lime, vinegar, chopped red onions, and about 2 tbsp olive oil. Pour your dressing over the avocado and tomato… And enjoy!!
