Tasty Tuesday: Avocado Corn Salsa and Grilled Chicken

Tuesday, July 25, 2017

I made up this little recipe two summers ago and loved it so much we had it more often than not.
However, I tend to forget about recipes all too often and haven't made it in way too long!
I'll also blame the fact that it's totally a summer recipe and we had the worst winter like ever this year!
All I want is comfort food when it's cold outside, and all I want is fresh food when it's hot.
Anyways, I remembered this recipe as I was meal planning last week and was so excited to eat it all week!
I posted about it on insta stories and got tons of questions about it so I decided it needed to be added here.
This picture is from the first time I made it so I'll need to update that at some point, but for now you can enjoy this recipe as much as I do!

-Chicken. However much or little.
-Marinade for the chicken. Any one you please. We used Lawry's herb and garlic marinade. (I've also since done this chicken by just adding some season salt, or garlic salt, or whatever we have on hand and baking it. Marinating is still my fav but takes a lot more prep.)

-1 can of corn 
-1 firm tomato 
-1/4 ish cup onion
-Handful cilantro
-1 ripe (but not super mushy) avocado
-1 tbsp. lemon juice
-2 tbsp. olive oil 
-Garlic salt 

1) Marinate your chicken for 5-6 hours. Or longer if you have the time and patience. Have your husband (or do it yourself) grill the chicken to your liking. Or as stated above, baking it is totally great too!
2) Meanwhile make the salsa! Chop up tomato and onion into cubes and put in a mixing bowl. Add in your can of corn drained. Add in olive oil and lemon juice and coat. Next chop your cilantro and cube the avocado. Add this to the mixture. Now sprinkle your seasonings to your liking being careful not to mush the avocado while mixing. 
3) Once the chicken is done top it with the salsa and there ya have it! A few variations we've liked are to put the chicken and salsa atop a bed of rice or quinoa. Hunter also said it would be really good wrapped in a tortilla! I agree! Have fun with it, because it is such a fun and colorful meal. 

Happy summer everyone! 
I hope you're having pool days galore!

All my love, 
Aleigh Joy
