Chicken Cutlets with Strawberry-Avocado Salsa

Chicken is anything but boring in this bright, flavorful, sweet-and-spicy weeknight meal.

I haven’t been making chicken dishes as often as I used to. It’s so easy to get bored with it.

But then a recipe like this comes around that packs a ton of flavor and I ask myself why I haven’t been cooking with chicken more often. It’s such a great canvas for flavors!

Chicken Cutlets with Strawberry-Avocado Salsa

The vibrant strawberry-avocado salsa is the perfect blend of sweet, spicy and most importantly, DELICIOUS. I loved the brightness of the strawberry and lime paired with the creamy avocado.

I served this over jasmine rice and broccolini sautéed with truffle salt. It was an awesome meal!
