Cilantro Lime Chicken with fresh tomato and avocado salsa

This grilled chicken is covered in a fresh tomato and avocado salsa with lime and cilantro, which really brightens the meat. Trader Joe's Israeli couscous blend on the side *choose rice instead if cooking gluten free* and steamed broccoli with a sprinkle of Parmesan cheese.

Remove chicken from marinade and discard the marinade. Season chicken lightly with salt and cook over medium-high heat until it reaches an internal temperature of 165'F, about 5 minutes per side.
2. To make the salsa, Mix all ingredients except avocado in a bowl. Add avocado last, stirring gently to combine. Serve salsa over chicken.
