Cayenne-Rubbed Chicken WIth Avocado Salsa


    I made this yummy healthy chicken dish last night for dinner and it was full of flavor.
    This had just the right amount of heat. I had leftovers and made an amazing sandwich
    for lunch! Enjoy!

                    Cayenne-Rubbed Chicken With Avocado Salsa ~Everyday Food

      salt and pepper
      1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
      4 boneless, skinless chicken breast
      2 tablespoons olive oil
      1 medium red onion, finely diced
      2 tablespoons lime juice
      1 Hass avocado, pitted and cut into chunks

      1) In a small bowl, combine 1 teaspoon salt, 1/4 teaspoon pepper, and cayenne
      rub all over chicken.
      2) In a large skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Add chicken and cooked until
      browned on the outside and cooked throughout, 8 to 10 minutes per side.
      3) Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, combine onion and lime juice, set aside.
      Just before serving, fold avocado chunks into onion mixture. Season with
      salt and pepper. Serve chicken topped with salsa.
