Ingredients

Grilled Chicken

4 Chicken Breast Halves

1/2 tsp Organic Paprika

1/2 tsp Organic Garlic Powder

1/2 tsp Organic Chili Powder

1/2 tsp Organic Cumin

1 tbsp Organic Olive Oil

Salad: All Organic Ingredients

2 cups Baby Spinach

1 Tomato

1 Red Onion

1 Cucumber

2 Avocados

1 tbsp Olive Oil

1 tbsp Cilantro, fresh or dried

1/2 tsp Sea Salt

1/2 tsp Pepper

Directions

Grilled Chicken

1Begin by tenderizing the chicken. Place parchment paper on your working surface. Lay the chicken halves down. Cover with another piece of parchment paper. Get out your meat mallet. Pound until each chicken breast is the same size.

2Baste each chicken breast with olive oil and sprinkle with spices.

3Heat the grill to medium. Cook chicken for 5 to 7 minutes on one side. Flip and cook for an additional 5 to 7 minutes. Always test the temperature of your meat. This will determine when it's done. We remove the chicken when it reaches 155°. The safe internal temperature is 165°. We find the chicken is a bit dry at this temperature though. We remove the chicken at 155° and tent for 5 to 10 minutes.

Salad

1Chop tomato, red onion, cucumber and avocados into 1/2" pieces. Place in salad bowl with baby spinach, olive oil and spices. Toss.

2Cut chicken into slices and place on top of salad. Serve!

I highly recommend you invest in a meat thermometer. Before I purchased one, my chicken was always overcooked. Here's a meat thermometer very similar to ours on Amazon. I couldn't find our original as we have had it many years.
