You are going to love this 30 minutes chicken dinner! Grilled chicken is topped with a sweet and fresh strawberry salsa for a real taste explosion! This Mexican style dish is perfect for summer evenings and so easy to make!
2jalapeño peppersribs and seeds removed, if desired, finely chopped
1/4cupfinely chopped onion
1/4cupchopped fresh cilantro
1/2tablespoonhoneymaple syrup, or sugar
Juice of 1 lime
Dash of salt and pepper
2-3poundsthin chicken breasts
In a bowl, mix the strawberry salsa ingredients together.
Combine the salt, pepper, cumin, chili powder, onion powder, and garlic powder in a small dish. Drizzle the olive oil over the chicken breasts and rub the seasoning over the chicken, coating entirely.
Heat the grill to medium-high heat. Once heated, place the chicken on the grill and cook for about 15-20 minutes total, flipping halfway through.
Serve the grilled chicken topped with strawberry salsa.
Using thin chicken breasts will help them cook more evenly and the flavor will be more evenly distributed. If your chicken breasts are large and thick, slice them in half or pound them with a meat mallet.
Use the freshest and ripest strawberries you can for the most flavorful salsa.
Let the chicken come to room temperature before placing on the grill. I like to take it out about 30 minutes before I'm ready to cook.
Be sure to pre-heat your grill. This will help the breasts cook more evenly.
Let the chicken rest for 10 minutes before serving. This lets the juices redistribute so you have perfectly juicy chicken.
