Grilled Cajun Chicken with Avocado Corn Salsa Recipe

Ingredients

Chicken

  • (6 oz) boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 3/4 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 – 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper, to taste
  • 1/4 tsp onion powder
  • 1/4 tsp dried thyme
  • 1/4 tsp dried oregano
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil

Avocado Corn Salsa

  • 1 ear corn, grilled or 3/4 cup frozen corn, thawed
  • roma tomato, diced
  • 1/3 cup diced red or green bell pepper
  • 1/2 avocado, diced
  • Tbsp chopped cilantro
  • 1 Tbsp fresh lime juice
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil

Instructions

  1. Preheat a grill over medium-high heat (to about 425 degrees). Pound thicker parts of chicken with the flat side of a meat mallet to even out their thickness.

    In a small bowl whisk together paprika, garlic powder, cayenne pepper, onion powder, thyme and oregano. Season with salt and pepper to taste (I used heaping 1/2 tsp salt and 1/2 tsp pepper). Brush both sides of chicken breasts lightly with olive oil then sprinkle both sides evenly with seasoning mixture. Grill until center registers 165, about 4 minutes per side.

    Meanwhile in a medium mixing bowl toss together corn, tomato, bell pepper, avocado, cilantro, lime juice and olive oil. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

    Let chicken rest off of grill 5 minutes tented with foil then serve warm with Avocado Corn Salsa.
