Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups strawberries chopped
  • 1/2 cup avocado peeled and diced
  • 2 tablespoons jalapeño pepper minced seeded
  • 2 tablespoons cilantro chopped fresh
  • 2 teaspoons fresh lime juice
  • 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt divided
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 4 chicken breast cutlets 4-ounce
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 lime wedges
  • 4 cups romaine or green lettuce leaves for serving

Instructions

  • Combine the strawberries, avocado, jalapeno, cilantro, lime juice, and 1/4 teaspoon salt in a small bowl and set aside.
  • Drizzle olive oil in a large skillet over medium high heat.
  • Season both sides of chicken cutlets with salt and pepper and add to skillet.  Cook for 3 minutes without disturbing. 
  • Turn chicken cutlets over and cook for 3 more minutes - optional to cover with a lid. 
  • Divide lettuce leaves among the plates (about 4 per plate). Divide the chicken amongst the plates and then top with salsa. Garnish with a lime wedge.

Notes

It's optional to cover the chicken during the last 3 minutes of cooking - I think it keeps it more moist. 
If you like spicy foods, leave in the jalapeño seeds. 
See my post for instructions on making this into a salad.
