Cilantro lime grilled chicken and salsa
Lime and cilantro is a classic flavor combination for the chicken marinade. And the same ingredients are used in the salsa to tie it together.
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. Boneless chicken breasts are actually easy to cook on the grill. The key to keeping the chicken juicy is not overcooking it.
Always use a meat thermometer to make sure you don't overcook the chicken breast! Pull the chicken off the grill just before it's done and let it rest. Carryover cooking will finish the chicken (it's done when the internal temperature reaches 165 degrees).
This cilantro lime grilled chicken with avocado and mango salsa is paleo, gluten-free, grain-free, dairy-free and Whole30-friendly. It's a perfect taste of summer.
