1. To prepare chicken, combine first 4 ingredients in a large bowl; toss and let stand 3 minutes. (longer time = more flavor). Remove chicken from marinade; discard marinade.

2. To prepare salsa, combine tomato and all ingredients except for avocado in a medium bowl. Add chopped avocado with care trying not to mush. Serve salsa over chicken.

Marinated the chicken for an hour, added cumin. sautéed onion and red bell peppers in olive oil then added the chicken. (no salt, we are on a 2 gram sodium diet) Was so good. This is one of the best dinners with no salt. Didn't make the salsa.

I marinaded the chicken 10 minutes and other than that followed the recipe to the letter. It was easy to make and full of flavor. I will definitely make this again.

Was kinda disappointed, but chicken was very moist, and the avocado salsa was delicious.

It was easy to make, but the chicken didn't have as much flavor as I expected. Used the leftovers to make a salad with mango and a vinaigrette.
