Grilled Chicken with Avocado Mango Salsa

Grilled Chicken with Avocado Mango Salsa

I made this grilled chicken with avocado and mango salsa on the first warm sunny day we had this year. It was perfect for grilling and eating out on the deck.

I love the sweetness of the mangoes with the jalapeno and cilantro in this salsa. Mangoes and avocados are a wonderful combination, and this tropical salsa is a nice change from the usual guacamole. Using boneless chicken breasts makes this chicken recipe really quick to put together. The key to keeping the chicken juicy is not overcooking it. Pull the chicken off the grill just before it’s done and let it rest. Carry over cooking will finish the chicken.

This paleo grilled chicken with avocado and mango salsa is gluten-free, grain-free and dairy-free. It’s a perfect taste of summer.
