Yield
4 servings (serving size: 1 chicken breast half and 3/4 cup salsa)

Baked tortilla chips make a crunchy companion for this simple chicken supper. Try the avocado, tomato, and cucumber salsa another night on grilled fish or shrimp.

How to Make It

Step 1

Heat a grill pan over medium-high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Sprinkle 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon chipotle chile powder evenly over chicken; add chicken to pan. Cook for 6 minutes on each side or until done, and remove from heat.

Step 2

Combine remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt, cucumber, tomatoes, onion, and remaining ingredients in a medium bowl, tossing well. Serve with chicken.

This was a great weeknight meal. I substituted the cucumber for grilled corn and it was a hit. Will definitely make this again.

OH WOW! After making this numerous times now, I wouldn't change a thing! My husband asks for this dish, often! Every time avocados go on sale, I grab extras to make this dish. This has become my new go to recipe. psjohnso - I can't wait to try it on tuna. Thanks for the suggestion.

SO GOOD!! I seared Ahi Tuna instead of chicken for a change. I did not change anything else. It came out so fresh and clean and good. My boyfriend cannot wait for me to make this again!

My fiance and I enjoyed this dish and will likely have it again! Very easy to make. The only substitution I made is that I did not have chipotle spice, so I used cayenne red pepper, salt and pepper on the chicken. The salsa mixture is tasty. We served it with baked tortilla chips.

Made to recipe using Foreman grill, so reduced cooking time to four minutes/side. Leftover chicken okay for quesadillas or salad. Cucumber salsa tasty & fresh.
